    Default Replacing internal battery?

    Hey guys,

    I just recently bought the EP121 and I'm loving it so far, especially OneNote. However, one thing that has been troubling me is, what happens when the internal battery reaches the end of its lifespan in a year or two? I've tried searching around the Internet (including this site) as well as ASUS' website about battery replacement services, but ultimately failed.

    I did manage to find a website selling the actual internal battery and although I don't have any qualms about taking apart the EP121 myself, the website seems a bit sketchy since it's the only place I've been able to find the battery.

    The battery appears to be available from Asusparts in Europe.

    Thanks for the help! Glad to know that there is some way to replace the battery yourself. Are there any "official" ASUS solutions or is it just a matter of sending the EP121 back?

    Did Anyone try that battery shop place? That's the cheapest I've seen it?? What's the $35 about that CF77 said?

    I read up on the batteryshop place and it has good reviews and no flags, and seem to be based in Hong kong or something.
    Anybody try them?
