Battery Modification for the Epson P-6000/P-7000 Media Viewer

April 27, 2022

In you own a Epson P-6000/P-7000, you already know what a great tool this is.  but...batteries are becoming hard to find and very expensive.

In my search for a solution, I ran across a guy that's much smarter than I who developed a 3D printed case for the 18650 cell that the Epson uses.  In conversation with him, the drawback is the electronics in the original battery are not replicated in the 3D printed case.  Plus, I don't own a 3D printer. 

So...I hacked the battery itself.  Using quality 18650 cells, I replaced the failed cells in the Epson battery and presto-change-oh we're back in business.  HOWEVER, this is potentially dangerous as the cells may become damaged or explode due to heat from soldering.  Proceed at your own risk.
