Hey, thanks for getting in touch! Is this a video doorbell? I’ve been unable to find the doorbell however, I have found some batteries on Amazon – if you search for 2600mah battery, you get results back with rechargeable AA batteries, and these are used regularly in video options. I hope that helps!
