Hi 

I need a replacement battery, the battery is a ML2430-HZ1

The place I bought them before has closed. I can buy in the states but they won't ship to the uk.

Any one got any helpful ideas?

How did you open it up? My battery is also dying, but I couldn't get into it to see what battery was used

I recently bought one from 'Cell Pack Solutions' .
https://cellpacksolutions.co.uk/products/batteries/maxell-ml2430-hs1-lithium-coin-cell-battery-pcb/
The rim connection set-up is a bit different - but I managed to solder it onto the board OK.
The battery was fully charged - and the Tacktick works fine.

This looks like it might be close enough to work.
It's, rechargeable, the right 3.0V, has pins for a PCB.
Only 50mAh instead of 100, and the pins may not be in exactly the right place.
https://www.rapidonline.com/panasonic-vl2330-1hfe-50mah-rechargeable-button-cell-lithium-3v-1-pc-s-59-6045

another place to look:
https://uk.rs-online.com/web/c/batteries/rechargeable-batteries/coin-button-rechargeable-batteries/?applied-dimensions=4294845777&sort-by=Capacity&sort-order=desc&pn=1
Is there space for a bigger diameter?

or here:
http://uk.farnell.com/w/c/batteries-chargers/batteries-rechargeable?battery-voltage=3v&st=lithium+rechargeable
It looks like you won't get 100mAh in 24mm diameter these days.
Coin cell numbers are e.g. 2430 = 24mm diamter, 3.0mm thick BTW.

HTH?

Obviously check the polarity if fitting a slightly different part.

is it the small market that stops a manufacturer coming to the market with a competing product with a replaceable battery? tacktick seem to have lost the replacement market to the diy replacers and they must be losng more sales than the few gained because batteries are not easily replaced? surely a new supplier would clean up?
