If the battery of your Tentacle ORIGINAL timecode generator is not running as long as it should after a few years, you can easily exchange it yourself. We offer a Battery Replacement Kit for the ORIGINAL in our Shop and at some of our resellers as well.
Please don't buy the kit just in case the battery capacity should decrease some time in the future, because the LiPo battery shouldn't be stored unused. That's why we have an individual expiring date of 6 months from shipping for each of the batteries.
The kit comes with:
- Lithium Ion Battery
- Original Tentacle Housing
- Velcro Hook Tape
- Velcro Loop Tape
- Rubber Band
- Foam Rubber Stripe
- Philips Screwdriver
- Instruction & video tutorial to show you the entire workflow of the exchange. Watch it here
NOTE: If you want to replace the battery by yourself, there are a few things you need to take into account. Electronic circuit boards are very sensitive to electrostatic discharge. So make sure you are not wearing clothes made of polyester or wool, which are prone to charge up very quickly. Do ground yourself before handling circuit boards! You can do that best at a radiator or faucet.
