Just learned that the local Apple dealer can't replace the batteries in my ipad 1.

Seem that I have to download everything then send ipad back to Apple who then swaps my unit for a different () unit with fresh batteries!!

THIS IS A CRAPPY WAY TO DO BUSINESS!!

Does anyone know a third party that will replace my batteries in my ipad??


Also where can a find a good external backup battery for my ipad??

If your under warranty you have to play by Apples rules, if your not any competant shop can replace the battery for you if you don't want to tackle it.

Yes, I watched this twice and decided that while I can do the work easily enough this is a can of worms I don't want to open myself. If something goes amiss I just junked my ipad if I do the change out.

I'm not sure what I will do in the end but I am looking at other ereaders since both Kindle & Nook have easy to change batteries. Got awhile to ponder this but thanks for the video it did help me learn.

This whole battery affair is something I missed when I chose an ereader.................
