where can i get buy gen 1 oasis charge cover? please advis

i sold my charging cover of oasis gen 1
to fund my oasis gen 2

but in hindsight i regret this as i dont like the gen 2, buttons are too noisy clunky and difficult to hold one hand without leaning - which isnt a problem, but the oasis 1 is just as good

(i dont need audible/waterproof)
problem is the charging cover adds a battery which the oasis gen 1 suffers miserably without

any advice?

I bought a used one from Amazon a few months ago for $14. The price has gone up.

Amazon.com also has new ones, but only the black appears to be in stock ( https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01637XE4W/ ). Currently the Oasis 2 covers have the same shortage - only the charcoal is available on amazon.com nothing on amazon.co.uk. Until amazon.co.uk has any battery covers back in stock, you might have to get an external usb power pack.

That amazon.com still sells them brand new indicates that they are at least not discontinued.

I have had my Oasis 1 with the glitchy cover connection since the day it was released and this has never once occurred to me.
