Replacement battery

While not completely dead, my battery is weakening.

I have searched the forum, the wiki and Googled around, but I can't seem to find a source for a replacement battery (yes I know, some soldering is involved). Can't even seem to find the maker / serial number of the original battery.

Any clue welcome.

edit: breakthrough: at the end of the service manual I found the Sony part number: A-1832-983-A

Googling for that, I found some for sale at ridiculous prices: $70, €85(!!), £73(!!!)...

Has anyone got this done via Sony? How much did they charge for it?


For info, I have searched for all the numbers on the below pictures, and also scanned the QR code (L1476W1706AA0205). No chance.

If anyone recognizes the logo on the battery, please let me know.
