    Default HELP! Need Sat Phone battery ASAP

    Does anyone have a source in the Los Anchorage/Valley area where I can find a replacement Satellite phone battery today (Saturday) or early Monday morning??? I need a Motorola Iridium 9506 Lithium Ion replacement. Any HELP is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Try the GPS store on old seward and 68th ish. I think they have sat phones and the like. Also give eagle enterprises a try. Heck try radio shack even.

    Alaska Satellite Communications also carries sat phones, but I don't know if they have what you need.

    Default Good point Vince

    My buddy was out hunting last winter and he had the 9505 and I had the 9505A and had to go help him out and tried to charge his phone with my cord and it wouldn't charge. I ended up leaving him my phone and brought his out.

    Got my batteries! Thanks. The GPS store on Old Seward had the wrong batch sent to them so were not able to help. The Surveyor's Exchange has at least a dozen of them, and the guy at the front counter has a good sense of humor. Again, thanks for the quick responses (even though I had the wrong model, 9505)!
