Subject: RE: So, are the new LiON batteries for the JBR replaceable or not?
From: Aman Singer (aman_at_asinger.net)
I wouldn't do that. LI-Ion batteries are subject to aging and, even
when not used, can fail after any long storage. See
Which states that they've seen significant reduction in capacity
even after one year's storage, and failure sometimes occurs after 2-3 years.

Wow, that was helpful! Thanks a lot! However, I have one more question. The
Archos manual says that the battery will last for the life of the unit
(whatever that means). I have had the unit for about a month. Is it wise to
buy a battery now, just to be on the safe side (in case they run out and
don't resupply in like 1 year or so)? Thanks in advance
