August 2020] I've had a Sony
ebook reader for a while. I
bought it second-hand and didn't
expect much of the battery. It
has been working ok for me but
if I don't use it for a while,
when I do come to use it,
often-times the battery is too
low. I've therefore given myself
the challenge of replacing the
battery, which looks fairly
straightforward since the back
of the reader has screws in.
September 2020] I finally received the replacement battery for my
Sony eReader. Or rather, the replacement and the replacement
replacement battery... in a similar fashion to the camera battery
I ordered from VHBW on ebay the first eReader battery didn't
arrive so I contacted them... I waited the time stipulated and
still nothing so yesterday I got ebay to 'step in' and they
immediately refunded me and I left negative feedback accordingly
(I left neutral feedback for the camera one that turned up
late)... then the very next day, today, two batteries turn up!
VHBW also contacted me about the negative feedback... what do I
I have now replaced the battery
which was pretty straightforward thanks to a guide on
Youtube. The only thing to note is the various screw sizes and
the surrounding strip is easy to break; mine turned out to already
have a crack in but it all went back together ok, held together
with the double-sided tape already in place.
I've been using my Kindle Fire for
books lately so when I do come to read a book on the eReader again
it will be interesting to see how long a full charge lasts for.
The indicator shows the supplied battery containing 3/4 charge.
*I replied to VHBW's email and
explained why I'd left negative feedback, but I was happy with how
they had contacted me in an effort to resolve the issue so I
changed my feedback to neutral; this seemed fair. I think the
issue was that their delivery times weren't realistic.
