  5. This battery is two Lithium polymer batteries connected in parallel to the regulator. The batteries are back to back and are rated at  9.47wh @ 3.75v each...I have yet to find this battery but assume it is available somewhere in raw form.

This is one of the few products that it's rarely if ever necessary to replace a battery in, as the warranty will cover a rapidly draining or not-charging battery. I'm glad you didn't tear down your chime, too! ;)

Where can the battery be purchased?

My ring doorbell is a little over a year old and battery is draining very fast so needs to be replaced. Ring says it is out of warranty and solution is to buy a new ring doorbell for $180. Not a good solution in my opinion. I just spent another $50 for the solar panel option (which is only compatible with the first generation ring doorbell) and this does not help so now I have $230 into this doorbell. If anyone knows where a replacement aftermarket battery can be purchased, I would appreciate this info.

At ham radio festivals there is a guy they call Mr. NICAD. He builds batteries for people. Just ask him.
