ITeddy Battery Problem
When I first bought the iTeddy we did not check whether it works or not, wished we did! 2 months later when we gave it to our daughter for her birthday, it didn't work! Battery was flat and would not charge. Only worked if you plugged the unit into a USB Port to get the power. We'll searching around I could not find anyone talking about changing the battery. I went to Jaycar (electronics store) and found replacement iPod batteries. They were the same voltage (3.7V) and mAh (900mAh). I bought it in hope it would work, and YES it did! Charges up too! The battery was a "little" bigger, but that didn't concern me, but if it does you then maybe try a 3.7v with a lower mAh and that will fit. You will need to cut the wires and match the red with the red and the black with the black of the battery. Make sure you keep the plug of the iteddy so you can take the battery out by unplugging it. I used a soldering iron to fuse the wires together. Good luck!
