Call Verizon and see if they'll replace it for you.  I think they replaced mine for free once.

I bought a FIOS battery from Amazon in 2015 - current price is $26.

That happened to me... you really don’t need the battery, just yank it.
You’ll have a red light on, that’s all.
No workie if the power goes out, but who cares.

Have a FIOS box her. What does it use a battery for? I know, power, but if nothing connected to it works, what does it need to stay on for...
