p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Replacing Profoto B2 battery cell?


Hi,

Has anyone opened up the Profoto B2 battery and replaced the battery with a third-party battery? Is this possible? It seems to be a very small battery. I had one for 15 months and it died prematurely due to one of the cells dying. I would like to have this old unit as a backup battery without having to spend another $250.

I am also looking for Acute 600b LifePo replacement battery and trying not to have to pay $600 for it. Someone said the Tenergy battery works as a replacement but it seems to be discontinued and the wrong Wattage hour.

Thanks.

I've popped mine open and it's using samsung cells with the corresponding model number indicated.
It's possible to re-cell it yourself I think but what I haven't figured out is how to disconnect
the board, terminal, and body without damaging the unit.
