Re: [PRE-ORDER] Circuit Sword (+ Lite), Circuit Shield + Circuit Gem - CLOSED

So, got my shield in and the other bits I need to build a pocket gbz. I'm just missing the battery. The link in the build guide video doesn't seem to work any longer. Searching for that specific kind of battery brings up Aliexpress and a bunch of dubious looking sites. I'm hoping someone has a suggestion for where I can get the recommended 505080 3460mAh battery that doesn't ship from China. (besides the whole "china is a**hole bit, it takes too long to ship internationally) (in the US)

I did find https://www.amazon.com/AKZYTUE-3200mAh- ... cs&sr=1-12 on amazon but I'm not sure if it would fit in the space available.

Any advise would be appreciated.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be a very common size, so you'll have a hard time finding one that doesn't ship from China. I sure did, so I ended up ordering from AliExpress. Note, AliExpress is relatively reputable, certainly not dubious lol. You obviously will have to wait a bit for shipping, but that's why I ordered mine back in February (when I ordered the Circuit Shield)... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Mild sassiness aside, if it helps, here is a link to the one I bought (I ordered 3):
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3284033 ... 73bbyNQagz

Please note, I have not tested or installed the batteries yet, but they came exactly as pictured/described, and well packaged. I have not looked for any quicker-shipping alternatives since purchasing this one, I simply wanted to provide my experience.

P.S. - The battery you shared from Amazon might not fit, or be an extremely tight fit, based on Wermy's video:

Also, I'd be a bit weary of that Amazon listing, as it's very unclear what size you will actually get. The size being a 605585 indicates the battery should be 6mm thick, 55mm wide, and 85mm long. But the length in the pictures shows 87mm, and under "About this item", each dimension is vastly different. However, for under $15, it wouldn't be too outrageous to just buy it and see if it fits. You can always return it if it doesn't.

Another battery you could try and it fits in the battery compartment without modification is a 125050 lipo battery
