Does Maplin sell a replacement battery to replace the rechargeable battery when it eventually dies. Also what is the life expectancy of the Block Rocker battery>

Asked by: gromit
The life of the battery will be effected by charge cycles and how the unit is treated such as not being charged in a long time or exposed to cold temps will shorten its life so we do not have an average life of the battery . A replacement can be obtained by taking the item into store and the staff will select a suable battery for you
