I confirm that ordering battery from ibasso is easy process and the actual delivery time in my case was shorter than as stated by ibasso. Moreover, replacement of the battery is easy task, although you need to have torx screwdriver (which I did not have and I had to buy one).

 

No problem cracking the case open (without scratches) after the torx screws were removed?

Yes. It is quite straight forward once you have the necessary screwdriver. No scratches to worry about.

Good to hear.  I have an aluminum tipped spudger I have always intended to use for that...but I haven't had to change the battery yet.

I ordered a replacement battery in late January and it took a few weeks.  Opening the case wasn't too hard after easing it off after screw removal.  However, one of the wires detached from the battery so I had to order another one.  So frustrating that I have to wait longer now.  I don't know if it was a bad solder job or maybe I was too rough with it.  It's a little tricky getting the sticky back of the battery on to the case while keeping the plug in.  Just be smarter than me. Shouldn't be too hard.

Do you have an image of where the lead broke loose? I could possibly fix it for you.

OK, just shot a few photos.  The other day I peeled back the blue plastic, which wasn't easy.  Even then it wasn't clear where the black wire (the disconnected one) was attached.  The red one disappears into a mess of circuit board and metal (see pic), which made me think the black one wasn't secured properly.  However, since I can't definitively say that it was defective, I ordered another one.

 

Not sure it's repairable but thanks for the offer!

Did you let iBasso know how it happened? 
 
If you want to send it I will give it a go.

I have to admit that I didn't contact iBasso.  I was too embarrassed about it because I have a long history of this kind of thing.  Since I couldn't be sure that it wasn't my fault (the wires were under tension as I struggled with it), I didn't think it was right to force them to send me a new one.  $20 isn't too bad anyway.  It's just the wait.  But I got an email from them yesterday saying it was shipped so should be here in a few weeks.  Again, thanks for the offer to help.
