Thanks for the info ^^

I'd go in with you on an order and get myself some spares but the postage cost between Greece and the UK wouldn't make it a feasible option. The positive thing is that the batteries have plugs on them so should be easy to swap over. Probably worth putting the PIQ on a radiator for a bit before taking the old batteries out in case they are glued in place as that should soften the glue a little and make it less likely you will puncture the battery casing.

If your PIQs are useless, open one of them to learn how to open another with less damage if PIQ does not instruct how to open them. Take battery out and measure it again if PIQ does not provide battery details. Then order small lipo is same size and fix battery, and try to have it back to water tight. This was practically what I was told with Xensr.

Just an example of batteries available from Amazon, but you could search yours from Aliexpress etc.
https://www.amazon.com/3-7v-lipo-batter ... po+battery
The type of the batteries are 3,7v 270829
Iam trying to find but are very rear , i have send enquiry in a manufacturer on China that i found in Alibaba but I don't know if they will send me so much low quantity. I have ask for 6pcs
Nice, you were already on top of it.. I also see that Ali stores announce selling 2-100 range too, it would be weird if 6 cannot be purchased or "sample purchased". But if their minimum is 20 pieces, just order it and put them on storage voltage and you would have 3 to 5 set of replacement batteries.. I know it is a waste but if device is worth hundreds of dollars/euros..

Soloshot 2 was ok. Soloshot 3 for kitesurfing not. They failed to make an Adapter to use with other cameras...their camera is just bad.

Not sure if they are even still in business. The idea was fantastic. Would buy a working one to use with my camera immediately.
