    I want to know if we should leave the lithum ion battery for "8 hours in the computer" before we start using it, or will that cause a type C fire?

    also, I took it apart and saw that it was a Panasonic "VL" 2020. No one I spoke to has ever seen such a thing. I'm wondering if the swiss made "CR" 2025" or another panasonic "BR" 2020 will work just as well with the EZ-flash III.

    As long as you get the battery voltage correct you should be fine. A lithium battery is 3.6V and a nimh is1.2V. I seriously doubt you'd have to charge a newer battery for eight hours.

    thanks- holy shit it works- I did such a crappy soldering job but I got the thing to stay on there and now it saves properly and REMEMBERS the time.

    Your soldering can be as crappy as you like as long as it is visiblely seperate from any other soldering contact.

    Was it a 3.6v battery for the EZ-Flash III?

    The EZ-Flash III used a Panasonic VL-2020 battery, it is a 3V rechargable.

    I used a Panasonic BR-2020 battery V3. it still works amazingly well.

    I did a shitty soldering job... yet it still works amazingly well!

    thanks so much you guys, this thing is as good as new- I WISH mp3's were this easy to repair and service.
