4.0 out of 5 stars Battery identical (almost!) but connector different...
I purchased one of these for my Tomtom XL which was dying after ten minutes on battery power.

The battery arrived quicker than I expected and the company's email messages are plentiful, so you don't forget what is on the way!

But the only problem was that the connector on the battery leads is different to my Tomtom (which was purchased in the USA)...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly as expected
Very good service from the supplier i.e.next day delivery, but the battery is not exactly the same as original. While the battery fits and works as expected, the new one is of a lower power capacity than the makers standard, so out of the car, it won't last as long without recharging.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly as expected, 13 April 2011
This review is from: Replacement battery for TomTom One XL, XL 325 (Electronics)
Very good service from the supplier i.e.next day delivery, but the battery is not exactly the same as original. While the battery fits and works as expected, the new one is of a lower power capacity than the makers standard, so out of the car, it won't last as long without recharging. Also, while it does have a plug attached to connect it to the PCB in the unit, the standard battery has five leads, and this only has three. Thankfully, the colour coded leads indicate which section of the socket to plug it in to (The middle 3 connectors). The unit appears to function well enough, so why the original battery has 5 leads attached remains a mystery at the moment.

I purchased one of these for my Tomtom XL which was dying after ten minutes on battery power.

The battery arrived quicker than I expected and the company's email messages are plentiful, so you don't forget what is on the way!

But the only problem was that the connector on the battery leads is different to my Tomtom (which was purchased in the USA). This wasn't a problem as I'm a confident electronic hobbyist and had the plugs exchanged in 10 or so minutes. But this may be a problem for those not so experienced in such tasks.

Best idea is to open your Tomtom before ordering and check exactly what you require. Unfortunately the product image has been (carefully?) edited not to show the connector - I intend to upload my own photo to complement this.

After fitting and powering up the Tomtom I found that the new battery was already more than half charged and so was able to use it straight away, but it's a good idea to fully charge new batteries and then completely empty them a few times to lengthen the life of the battery.

All in all I'm pleased with the battery and the seller's service. Well done!

Bought this after my Sat Nav took a dive and the battery was no longer useable. Fantastic that I was able to get another one and hey presto the Sat Nav was as good as new

Battery arrived prompltly and took about 10 minutes to fit. Check out how to fit on YouTube. I would suggest getting hold of the TORX T9 driver so as not to damage screw heads.

TomTom as good as new

5.0 out of 5 stars Saved me buying a new TomTom, 26 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Replacement battery for TomTom One XL, XL 325 (Electronics)
I considered getting my old TomTom fixed as it wouldn't hold a charge (lasted about 20 mins without the charger plugged in. The repairs were very dear so I looked at replacement, even worse and I hate throwing away things that should be easily fixed. Came across the replacement battery here on Amazon and thought it was worth a go. Hurrah, no problems since fitting it - good as new again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased, 22 Jun 2011
This review is from: Replacement battery for TomTom One XL, XL 325 (Electronics)
Very prompt delivery and the new battery works fine. There were no instructions included but it is a straight forward process to unplug the old one and reconnect the new one. The old battery was stuck to the back case with a sticky pad which required a bit of force to remove but the whole process was very easy and I now have a TomTom One XL that holds a charge. Worth every penny.

This review is from: Replacement battery for TomTom One XL, XL 325 (Electronics)
Despite people complaining about how fiddly these batteries are to fit I found absolutely no problem fitting the battery and it charges up as original equipment without any problems - to date.

It would have been nice to have had a screwdriver supplied but I simply nipped the edges off a small screwdriver and that did the trick.
