Hi
I need to replace the battery for my Tom Tom Go520

Is it a 5v or a 3.7v

Do Tom Tom sell them. Can't see any info on them for sale.

Many thanks

    It is a 3.7V the best is to disassemble the GPS to see the exact reference of the battery.

    Hi Salut

    Have dismantled and it is a 3.7v battery So

    Have you got any ideas as to why the battery is 3.5v but the label on the unit itself shows 5v

    Very strange

    The battery is recharged with a maximum 5V charger at the output.

    There ARE places selling the battery. For example:
    https://newpower99.com/products/tomtom-go-520-battery-replacement-kit-1
    but obviously you should buy from someplace in your country if this is not. Ebay and Amazon are other sources.

    Changing the battery is not too difficult if you are somewhat good with such stuff. I have changed several over the years.
