    Lik sang wrote a special about the Gba sp, showing that the Lithium battery can be easily extracted and replaced!

    It's a great news for everyone like me that was worried about replacing it,
    no need to send the console to Nintendo when it dries out.

    You can read the complete article at Lik-Sang homepage.

    Well there is a need to send it to Nintendo, as your warranty is voided if you remove the cover says so in the manual [​IMG]

    i dont think that the warranty lasts years, and the battery will need to be replaced in 2 or 3years ..

    Rechargeable batteries have a limited number of recharges...
    after that number, they'll start losing power...

    i have to say this in portuguese, because i can't find the right words in english... [​IMG]

    já deves ter reparado que as baterias dos telemoveis se viciam não?
    o mesmo acontece com qualquer bateria recarregavel... depois de um certo numero de cargas, elas começam a perder power, e o tempo de vida começa a descer (tipo ao inicio com um carga a bateria durava 10 horas, ao fim de um certo numero de cargas só dura 9h, mais umas centenas de cargas e dura 8h, e assim sucessivamente...)

    i don't think so... it wont fit in the original gba...

    Just buy a pair of rechargeable batteries, and a charger instead...

    also, like so many other gameboys, there will probably be more colors of them in Japan which people will buy, which means that they won't be warrantied anyway [​IMG]
