Where can I purchase the battery?

Fairly easy to do. Saves a lot of money compared to buying a whole new Kindle :) Thank you for this! A note: I've never seen batteries as...soft as these. Take care when using the removal tool. I could be easy to puncture the battery which could cause a big mess and possibly injury.
