Does anyone make a tablet that has a battery that can be replaced at a resonable cost.

In theory but in a real world. I want to be able to do a search on the net , say amazon or ########### and find a ton of different vendors selling decent batteries for my tablet for around $15, free shipping. With my pandigital its not the case, only a couple on the net, they are junk and the prices are high. Whats really interesting is th company does not offer them, they want you to buy a new unit after 2 years. I found that most of these cheap tablets have a closed system so you spend a ton of time hacking them so they are useful and then the hardwre dies out.

That was one of the features I liked with my Witstech tablet, a battery door and a removable battery - I had a spare battery which I never used, however, the concept was there. I know that the rugged Motorola tablet has a swappable unit and I'm sure there are many others.

How to replace a tablet battery ?


You need some soldering skills...

first find a way to open the casing then remove the battery terminal from the socket,
remove the sealed li-ion /polymer battery from the terminals.

Find the correct battery polarity, match it with the new one.

I use two galaxy note batteries. Some tablets use just one, others two in series 9 volts charger.

The other one can be charged by usb, mostly it only has one battery.

It lasts for a day use without charging.
