Is it difficult to change the battery on the bar mounted unit?

I'm pretty sure it the battery, as the speed, cadence and power cut in and out on a ride. Bike was a the lbs for a week and the chain was touching the power kit, which is likely to have drained the battery.

It's very easy, just use a coin to open the bar mounted unit, then the battery should come falling out.
Just make sure you securely close it afterwards :roll:

It's a simple battery, like the ones used in a watch.
There's a number on the battery so you know wich one to get.
I get my battery's from a photoshop(?), a jewellery shop should have them too so it shouldn't be too hard to find one and you could always give Polar a ring.

Good luck.

The battery used in the power kit isn't like ones used in a watch (unless your watch is HUGE).

The battery in the bar mount (the one powering the power kit) is a CR123A and is approx 3cm long and 1cm diameter.

Really easy to replace. coin gets the cap off, replace the battery and coin gets the cap back on. And your away.

Maybe too late for you but for UK (maybe European people also) the shop price for lithium batteries like this is extortionate : I've used www.7dayshop.com in the past : pretty good service (not quick : ie around 7 days delivery !!) but very cheap and a good choice of batteries and camera related gear.

Woolworth's was the cheapest in the end £4.99. Your suggested shop sells them at £5.50. Thanks anyway...
