Sony tablet battery replacement

Anyone knows where to do this?

Tried Sony at 313 but they dont stock battery any more. Guess Sony is out of the tablet biz now.

Thought of jalan jalan Sim Lim Sq to see if anyone can do that but would be great if someone knows of a shop.

Thanks

Replace for you or just sell battery? I dont have tools to open the case.

Mine is sgp712 which is sony z4. The last model before they stop making.

Anyway got a shop at sim lim sq to order the parts. 80 to 100 bucks.

If dont want to wait then another shop ask 150.

Oh... that's pretty reasonable if they also include repair cost in that $80-100... I'm still using the first Tablet Z... battery still very strong... but I use very lightly...

The Tab Z that my dad is using is still going strong too. But battery is clearly not good after so many years.

To be honest, I don't think it is worthwhile paying 100 bucks for a battery replacement when there are faster tablets out there that is not too expensive, i.e. Xiaomi MiPad 4. While it is a waste since the tablet works properly, but investing 100 bucks on the battery does not mean the other parts will not fail.

Unfortunately the Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 doesn't have global ROM and the LTE doesn't work with my Starhub mobile data SIM... not worth it...
