looking on ebay or even gearbest i cannot find a m2 ssd card that looks like the one under the slot on the back.
They are all either too long or have too many separate edge connectors. This one requires a square card with
a screw slot on it and on short edge connector and one long edge connector. What should i be searching for?

You need to search for an "m2 2242" ssd card.

Indeed, without modifications the slot on the bottom of the device accepts only the shortest M.2 card, "2242". But it is quite easy to mod the Lapbook and install standard length 2280 cards: Just read the other thread on this topic here "Fitting a 2260 or a 2280 M.2 SSD into Chuwi LapBook 12.3?"

Just one more question. After looking in at the edge connection slot it's only divided into two sections. A short and long. After your advice and searching for 2242 models they all have a short edge connector on each end and a long one in the middle. Does it matter which way up it gets slotted in?

This should help you:

Usually it slots in so that you can still read the manufacturer's sticker. Do it carefully, it only fits in one way.
