I am trying to track down battery replacements for the Viewsonic G Tablet; and yes I did go through all of the threads to see if this information has already been posted elsewhere.

I would like to have the information handy in case mine decide to crap out. Has anyone been able to find a source, part number or anything on this subject?

You will have to open the case and remove/replace it yourself or send it in to viewsonic. I would just prefer to replace it myself...

Any leads on this would be great... I would love to have the option to do this myself so I wouldn't have to bring my Gtab back to stock and ship it to Viewsonic.

Is there someone out there willing to open their tab and get numbers off the battery to research this?

Someone has done a tear down, I think you would need to find out what the make/model of the battery is. Once that is done, you shouldn't have a problem sourcing one.

Here are two pics, battery and label. I wonder if there is a source which sells this battery? My tab won't charge up and I'm thinking it could be the battery.

I can't figure out where to get one, much less the cost.

How old is you gTab? Seem really odd that it would already have killed the battery... likely a hardware failure of some sort
