EARIN earbuds| DIY battery replacement

EARIN’s capsule battery

My EARIN’s capsule battery is almost dead. When I enclose earphones in the capsule, an indication lump of the capsule never turns on. So I decided to replace the dead battery.

When I twist to the capsule, it opened like the picture below.

ICR17280 is model number of the battery.

[spec of ICR17280]
Place of Origin: Guangdong, China (Mainland)
Brand Name: Topway
Model Number: TW-ICR17280
Nominal Capacity: 600mah
Nominal Voltage: 3.7v
Battery type:lithium-ion
Cycle life:More than 500 times

I searched the battery on Google, but I couldn’t find any shop to get one.

I didn’t have any other choice, so I searched a substitute product. 28mm length is little bit uncommon.

I finally found a product which is the same size as ICR17280.


CR2 battery

[FUJITSU CR2C battery]

  • SIZE: CR2
  • VOLTAGE: 3.0V
  • CHEMICAL: Lithium

The voltage of ICR17280 is 3.7V and that of CR2C is 3.0V. CR2C’s voltage is lower than ICR17280. It’s no problem!

I bought a CR2C battery from Amazon. It costed just $3 (330yen). Good price!

Amazon's parcel

A parcel from Amazon was so big and a battery was so small.
