Hello, my Archos 5 IMT 500GB no longer holds a charge. Even while pluged in it wont make it through the boot up sequence before dyeing. I even have the battery dock plugged in, plus the usb, and it still wont stay on for more than 5 seconds, no matter how long I leave it to charge. So I need a replacement battery. I opened up my IMT and it has that bloated battery problem, and smells terrible. Does anyone know where I can buy one? I tried ebay, but no one has the battery for the 500gb model.

Also I don't see why it wont power up while its plugged in, why is that?

Not sure where to order new battery, but you might get it fixed here

My 500 gb Archos 5 battery is on its way out as well and may use this service eventually.

I saw this thread here that may help with battery purchase...

viewtopic.php?t=55231

To answer your first question, you cannot successfully boot up and run the device with a dead battery, even with it charging. It draws power from the battery, even while charging. (Crazy, I know)
