Does anyone know where to get spare batteries for the Jolla C / Intex Aqua Fish? Either original or third-party would be okee.

The battery in the Jolla C does not sport any model numbers but the Intex says:

Model: BR2567BU

Li-Ion 1ICP4/60/68

Phenix JLN Tech Co.

By the by, i noticed these poetic words in that link, Fast charge v2.0 technology.

can anyone confirm this about Jolla C or Aqua Fish?

Hmm, at least we know now that spare batteries exist.

About that Fast charge technology: I'm using regular USB-Micro chargers but I don't think it is "fast". Charging the Jolla C with a 2 A charger takes ~3 hours from 0 to 100 % for me.

That sounds slow to me. I'm charging my aqua fish with standard intex provided charger (1A) in about 1.5/2 hours. (with wifi off ofc, which might be the case for faster charge)

but ive noticed faster charging when charging with xiaomi chatger (2A).

Has anyone tried to buy one on maxbhi.com? Does the ship to europe?

Found the br2567bu on taobao https://world.taobao.com/item/559107067711.htm as far as i can get with translation of the page they don't seem to ship to EU.

"Official logistics services: Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, Singapore, Australia, Japan, the United States, New Zealand, Canada"

Maybe someone who can read chinese is able to contact the seller for info if they are willing to ship to EU...

I have ordered this battery through https://taobao-0.com with the delivery to Moscow. If the battery will be ok, I could order and deliver them to EU.

Fedorka ( 2018-07-31 19:09:33 +0300 )edit

The battery is successfully delivered. I've bought the battery here https://world.taobao.com/item-amp/559107067711.htm

through this web-site: https://taobao-0.com/Vuruf3rCKHrLa8L1VJofeJavevw2XAu3UMXNh3rCwJaLXp6nUjSkWe--/item.html

If anybody needs in this battery, I could order it and bring to EU in 2-3 months. I am living in Moscow, but quite often travelling to EU (Latvia).

Fedorka ( 2018-09-01 07:53:29 +0300 )edit

@Fedorka Nevermind! I found a similar service for germany: https://www.yoybuy.com I will report when the battery arrives.

daywalker ( 2018-09-10 16:35:28 +0300 )edit

Got a refund because it didn't make it through customs :( ...so @Fedorka it would be great if you could order one for me and send it from EU hit me at telegram @supremesyntax

daywalker ( 2018-09-26 15:19:27 +0300 )edit

Have you found any alternative batteries? Yesterday the battery of my Jolla C was getting thicker, so I think I shouldn't use it any more...

edit flag offensive delete publish link more



Same to me. The battery of my Intex Aqua Fish became swollen like some air inside. I suspect that this factory fault, I bought Intex Aqua Fish last year in August. Just half year was passed. I wrote to jolla.zendesk.com, buyon.ru and intex.in. Jolla told me that no spare parts or service for Jolla C. Buyon.ru answered that the service is only for phones which were bought from them. Intex.in - still no any answer. Might be anybody is able to send spare batteries from India as a gift, but for reward. Or are there any opportunities to order a batch of batteries?

Fedorka ( 2017-03-13 22:47:50 +0300 )edit

I'm not sure, but I think also in India there are no possibility to order such batteries. I have asked some resellers on ebay if it is possible to get such batteries, because hope always dies last! :-(

caesium ( 2017-03-14 22:15:28 +0300 )edit

So may be ask Jolla to organise batch of batteries for Jolla C / Intex Aqua Fish? Second part of the refund is not proceeded yet... Or anybody of Jolla community in India could help to contact with Intex concerning the spare batteries? Anyway I am sure that Jolla could contact Intex directly and get information about the spare batteries.

Fedorka ( 2017-03-15 16:20:25 +0300 )edit

I was looking battery for Intex Aqua Fish today! I am guessing that BR2585BY or BR2585BE is compatible to Intex Aqua Fish/Jolla C battery BR2567BU. Can anybody check it in India? And, if compatible, please help to find any opportunity to deliver it internationally!

This battery has most of the specs used by intex AF battery, but i don't know whether it works fine or fits well or not.

Here is the link: https://www.ebay.in/itm/273014929920?aff_source=Sok-Goog Reply me soon whether it is fine or not guys...

It differs. I was already asking guys from India. Battery for Jolla C/Intex Aqua Fish has no compatible batteries yet.

I bought one on ebay and did the soldering/etc by following the tutorial. It's working like a charm! 😀

sausset ( 2017-03-10 18:59:10 +0300 )edit

Thanks, made one myself without soldering as @schturman showed on this page: https://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=98733&page=5

Now my JollaC is able to function again until Sailfish is ready for Xperia X!

You can go buy it at nearest Intex store or any store that sells Intex products.

@Rajuaa00 Would you be willing to buy it at this store and send abroad if compensated for it?

There is unfortunately no other way to get an out-of-the-box compatible battery since they are sold out at the maxbhi.com online shop.
