Can somebody help me a contact to buy a new battery from Ecuador. I need a new one I have 4 degraded batteries from spare parts in my warehouse.
I know I can try to charge in CFE but this battery could not reach the 3900 mV to start the controller.

At the beginning of this year I changed a battery in other site I tested 3 batteries I got from warehouse in China. using CFE
1: Comprehensive NVMEM test 78: Verify data retention 2: Battery test 82: Display memory by address
71: Turn battery off 91: Enable/disable looping 72: Turn charger off 92: Stop/continue on error 75: Fill for power cycle, burst write 93: Extended/normal test mode 76: Fill for power cycle, burst read 99: Exit 77: Fill for power cycle

As you can see I am getting the charge after activating charge option. I got enough change to start the controller in only one battery. Now the problem is different because I am not getting the full charge and I am using the same battery was installed because I have no more batteries since the problem at the beginning of this year. I just have 3 controller and one of them has different firmware version.
