It's been a common question over the years ... are there any suppliers in NZ for laptop cmos batteries?

I'm after one of those that is already in the yellow shrink wrapping with two wires/pin connectors.

Ta,

I couldn't find one locally for an Asus netbook, so I ordered one from Amazon last week after finding the part number.

If your soldering skills are spectacular, you could probably make one yourself using the cable from the old battery.  You would just have to ensure you got the right battery.

Yeah, I've sourced them on eBay (ex China) just thought I might support local business.

I've also seen the board-mounted battery holders,  but wanted to avoid fiddly soldering etc.

I'm sure Athlonite knows this, but anyway. The yellow stuff is not electrical tape. It is heatshrink tube, but still easily obtainable. Bought ones are spotwelded rather than soldered. Soldering is possible, but skills are required to avoid transferring to much heat to the battery and damaging/killing it.

But yes it can be done with a soldering iron and electrical tape but the result will not be pretty ; ).

Exactly why I was looking for the easy (and cheaper) solution of a new battery and wires unit laughing

Looks like eBay is the answer.

Yes I do know the difference between heat shrink and electrical tape as for it not looking pretty who cares it's hidden inside the laptop and is not visible 

DSE used to stock them you might be able to find one there

DSE used to stock all sorts of things useful.  I knew they were going downhill when my local branch stopped stocking solder...

They no longer stock solder but do still sell a single model of soldering iron. Go figure!
