device. The components inside the Z1 are rated for an absolute maximum
of 6 volts. Exceed that input voltage and you *will* damage the
electronics. Unless you are an electronics technician, I would not
expect that the average person could repair one of those Z1s.
Using the search term: zipit -handbag -bag -purse* -zipper -"mary jane"
returns results of quite a few of the Z1 zipits for sale. One that I
see is a buy-it-now for $22 with a $6 shipping. That is probably your
best solution. If she insists on the same color case, simply put the
circuit board from the new unit into the old one.
