    Nice quote. Did you buy a battery from them?

    Already answered. Let's move this discussion past this and on to more productive issues...

    Hi all, same case here, my canvas case now expanded since swollen battery, and

    I bought this canvas in 2016 from amazon and I am from hong kong, it is difficult to ship to US even they can replace a new battery and (cost US1500? Wtf)

    As I use this canvas as a desktop replacement and wont bring this go out, can I just make this simply to remove the battery and just use the adaptor to work on it? Many thanks

    These wild quotes are confusing. Mine was in the $300's. They fixed it and I was lucky I used Amex who covered me. They are not going to last long with this type of service or non-service.
    And BTW, I used it as a desktop replacement too. The problem was identified a few pages back, leaving it connected all the time is bad for the battery. I didn't know that. Mine was connected all the time, and I'm sure that's how mine was swollen as well.

    I don't know, but I don't see why not. I remember I used to do that with a dell laptop and worked. And if you're not going to send it in, then why not try it.

    I used lenovo laptop as desktop replacement also before using this vaio, and i can remove the battery easily since it was easily removable and just using ac adaptor, and this time vaio's battery built internally and not assume us to remove, so I am wondering is still work if remove by us and just rely on ac adaptor

    So I have the same battery swell as everyone else. I am planning to sell this Vaio Z Canvas. Shall I sell "as-is" or should I try to get it repaired? Has anyone else sent in for an estimate? Is $1500 still the cost for battery repair?
