While Acer can't and wouldn't try to stop you from replacing your A100 battery, we do not support the activity or provide steps on how to do so.

 

Hopefully other community members can provide instructions and you may be able to find instructions from other resources online. If you do decide that you want to purchase a battery, I would suggest contacting our regional Acer store to see if the price and part availability makes it an option for you.

Not much support. I suppose Acer wants my tablet to be worthless junk in less than 2 years. I should have listened regarding Acer.

Now I have to listen to my wife say, "I told you so." Problem is I really like the tablet, Works great, but only for about 18 months. Now its basically worthless. It works plugged in, but that is not what I bought it for.

 

I have come to the conclusion that what the tablet makers are doing re batteries should be illegal. They sell you a product that they know will not keep working. Telephones and computers come with batteries that can be easily replaced by the owner. Why not tablets?

 

Anybody have any thoughts?

Not an indorsement, just a possible starting point if you want to try doing it yourself.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KIaO2c1TZ-U
