I recently bought a Phonak Roger mic 1.1 on eBay.
When it arrived, it was DOA. I contacted the seller and they sent me another one and said not to bother sending back the first one. Second one works great.
I bought it to replace my Phonak Roger Mic 1.0 which works but I wanted an upgrade due to poor bluetooth quality IMHO.
Now you know why I have 3 Roger mics.
Anyhow, I got curious so I took apart the working Roger Mic 1.0 (using a couple of plastic cell phone repair tools), took the battery from it and switched to the DOA Roger mic 1.1. Now DOA Roger Mic 1.1 works!
So I have a Roger mic 1.0, which works but has a dead battery, and I thought maybe I’d try to find a replacement. You know if I asked Phonak to replace it they would want $300 to “repair” it when the “repair” is switching out a $5-$10 battery which takes all of 5 minutes.
I haven’t found a Battery yet that will fit in there but here are the specs:
Made by: Intellect Pioneering Battery Technology Co. Ltd
3.7v 250maH .93WH
Measures 34 x 17.5 x 4.5mm
In the meantime until I found one, I figured I would start this thread for anyone else curious about replacing a battery, or who want to know what the guts of a Roger mic look like. It was relatively easy to take apart with the plastic tool (pictured, blue) by using the tool to separate the top from the bottom and then going down into the mic with the tool facing the direction pictured without damage.
