If you are still using an older model ereader, then in due time its battery will grind to a halt, and that will be the end of your ereader – Except there is now hope for your older ereaders, NewPower99 will happily sell you a replacement battery to breath life back into your trusty elderly ereader, and keep it running for a few more years.
As is well known, most ereader users are not of the tribe who simply have to have the latest model device, but rather tend to happily go on reading their ebooks on whatever ereader they have until in the fullness of time, it ceases to work, and that is when they go out and buy a new one. So, as it is mostly the death of the internal battery that causes it to stop working, rather than any other problem, being able to replace the defunct battery would seem a good idea. Well now you can do that.
NewPower99 sell a wide range of replacement batteries for all manner of mobile devices, including a wide range of ereaders, and their prices are not so high as to make it a silly decision to replace the battery rather than buy a new ereader.For as little as $25 you can get a replacement battery for your ereader, but as it isn’t actually the intention of the ereader makers that you change its batteries, it is not something that you can do with just a small screw driver, so NewPower99 include a CD with instructions, and the necessary special tools you will need to open up your ereader and install the new battery in it.
To give you a good idea of what they give you, here is the instruction video for changing the battery in a Sony 505 ereader.
See? easy when you know how isn’t it?
They supply these kits for a wide range of Sony, Kindle and Barnes and Noble ereaders, as well as a huge range of other electronic mobile devices (phones, tablets and so on).
I approve of this whole idea, I hate the waste of throwing away perfectly good electronic gadgets each year as the newest model comes out, always struck me as stupid, environmentally bad and simply a waste of money, so now some of us at least can help matters, thanks to the thoughtfulness of NewPower99.
As you will see from one of the comments below, changing the battery in your ereader is not that simple, and should only be undertaken if you are really experienced with such things. If in doubt, NewPower99 will do it for you for a relatively small amount of money. Simply contact them and go from there.
Apart from buying direct from them, you can also buy them from Amazon.
