Where did you source the battery for this? Do you have the part number at least? Astro doesn't sell them.

I am also looking for this without having to get them from china as it will take 4 to 6 weeks to get it. Any local source for this battery?

I had to order from China, only batteries that are held domestically I could find were for the gen3/solder only and not the connector style

For those with a gen3 a50, the battery is mounted slightly different, you don't need to remove the PCB, just pinch the black tabs holding the outer cover on. See here:
