    Anyone find spare batteries online for mifi 7730L

    Hi im trying to run my mifi without a battery (this thing overheats wildly, atleast 3-5 times a day) by doing a hack i saw online for a 6620l on an rv forum.
    The hack involves modifying your battery but i rather do this to an extra batt. Have not been able to find anything online even on novatel.

    Thanks

    The hack involves removing the intetnal parts of the battery.

    Looks like a shady listing. It shows a Novatel 7730 battery in the pic yet the description says generic/unbranded. I'd stay away from it.

    Looks like a small ebay seller probably CBA to fill out the description fields. If he's just going to cut it up and use it for a shell I doubt it would be a problem even using a off brand knock off.

    Nice find man thanks, but dang $20 is steep. And the overheating causes it to shut off repeatedly. Im not 100% this trick will solve overheating issues but the times it has overheated the battery was extremely hot.

    What im currently doing now is (believe it or not) im running a usb type c into my refrigerator and placed the 7730L inside in a ziplock bag. This is the only way it will run very stable for me, zero shut downs.

    Yep i would not mind using a cheap chinese battery in the $5-10 range I guess I will have to wait till these pop up in the market.

    The batteries are much rarer for hotspots than phones I assume it has something to do with the smaller volume sold.
