DEAD NOOK

My Nook died.

The guy at Barnes and Nobel said it would cost $140. to get a new battery.  A new Nook costs $149.

I was pretty sad about the whole thing.

Tom said - we'll get a new battery.  I told him the guy at B&N said the reason it is so expensive to replace is the difficulty - thus high labor cost.

Tom snorted and  found YouTube vido showing how to do it and a site selling the battery for $40.

It's on the way.  To be continued...

That's highway robbery for a battery! Hope you're able to do it yourself.

I had a dead battery on my former iPod and I too found the video on how to change the battery. Word of caution is this....it look so easy in the video.....
I ending up getting a new iPod
good luck

I thought it looked pretty complicated but we agreed it was worth $40. to try to save $150. We can always sell the new battery if it doesn't work!
