Nook Repair And Battery Replacement
I got one of the early Nooks (BNRV300) being given away by someone who probably upgraded.
Turned out to be immensely useful, so when it started having problems charging, I felt it worth repairing. The problem was with the USB port and some resoldering of the mount points and circuit board connectors fixed that.
Although there was no issue with the original battery, I took the opportunity to replace it with one that has 40% more capacity than the original, even if the original had more than sufficient lifetime (several weeks).
The ability to take a micro-SD card up to 32 GB means it can carry thousands of books (I had a 16 GB card around that I added).
I am not one to rush to new technology and even now I do not yet have a cell phone, but I am convinced about the utility of eBook readers, especially those using E-ink as they can be used outside in sunlight.
