    For quit some time I consider buying new battery for my Playbook. The only problem is that that is built in to the rest of the boards. Is it possible to change the battery and if so how?

    No. In fact only a few tablets let you do this - I believe the Toshiba thrive is one of them. But none of the majors (iPad, Galaxy Tab, etc) have replaceable batteries.

    It's not really possible, but why would you want to do that? No PlayBook should have a battery that has a significantly reduced life, unless it's defective. Defective ones would still all be under warranty.

    I like to be prpered to change it when it dies, because right now it lasts for few days of very middle use.
    Also, I have to check how long it actually lasts right now.
    Thank you all for suggestions.

    maciek226, it won't simply "die", unless it's actually defective.

    Rather, it will gradually lose capacity, bit by bit, until the daily life is low enough that you are too frustrated by it.

    By that time, which should be well over two years away, maybe 3-4, if the PlayBook's been successful, you should be able to find places that will sell you replacement batteries (there are two) or replace the batteries for you.

    RIM has a flat rate for replacing the battery as well. I read it in some documentation that came when I did an express exchange on my son's playbook. I don't have the documents handy anymore, but I think it way $99.

    There is a magical thing called "charging" the battery,rather than changing it.

    Any idea what company made this for BlackBerry? Would think of Logitech. Also did you scan the code on the battery?
