Anybody know where to find a battery that will fit in the Shield Tablet? I know there are several threads online (here on xda, on GeForce forums, and other places) that discuss replacing the shield tablet battery and a few different part numbers / batteries that work, but all those threads are from 2016 and 2015, and all the suggested batteries can no longer be purchased (out of stock and/or discontinued everywhere I've looked). My Shield Tablet battery still works, but it's getting weak and I'd like to bring to back to it's full glory (only get about 3 hours of SOT anymore and AccuBattery lists the estimated capacity at about 3400mah out of the original 5200mah).

Check the original battery specs and get one with similar specs.

That's what I've been trying to do, but I have literally not been able to find a single battery with the same or slightly smaller dimensions.ive check eBay, Amazon, AliExpress, Google searches.

Ok, so I just spent the last hour or so scouring eBay for batteries, and I found several options but none of them are exactly the same size (mAh or dimensions) as the old battery. According to comments online, the original shield tablet battery is exactly 3.5mm x 74mm x 152mm.

I know this is a long shot, but to anyone who has already opened up they're tablet: do you think it is at all possible to squeeze a slight wider or slightly thicker battery in the shield tablet? Like maybe 0.5mm to 1mm thicker, or maybe 4mm to 6mm wider?

Ok, I'm going to be going ahead with replacing my Shield Tablet battery in the next few weeks or so. Not sure exactly when, but when I do, I'll post my results in this thread so shield owners can find it in the future. Below are some links to the batteries that I found on Ebay that MIGHT be compatible with the Shield Tablet. The original Shield Tablet battery size is suppose to be 3574152 (3.5mm x 74mm x 152mm), according to a comment by Jose Fuentes on this site. All of the batteries listed below ship from China, I couldn't find any that ship out of the USA, but they should all be able to be shipped to the USA.

Ebay Links (if any of these links stop working because the lists are over, just search Ebay for the text of the links):
3.7V 5500mAh 3380150
3.7V 5135mAh 4563135
3.7V 4850mAh 3773140
3.7V 5000mAh 4068106
3.7V 5000mAh 3380140
3.7V 4800mah 3373158
3.7V 5200mah 3377140

When I get around to trying to replace my Shield Tablet battery, I will most likely be buying two of the batteries listed above (the 3.7V 5200mah 3377140 which I'm really hoping fits, and probably the 3.7V 4850mAh 3773140 because it should be most likely to fit).

Ok I just ordered the 5200mah 3377140 battery today. It's coming from China to the USA, so it'll probably take week or so to get here, but when it arrives I'll report back if it fits or not! So check back in 10 days or so.
