hp touchpad battery replacement

The battery replacement guide is good, but I haven't found anybody selling spare batteries for the HP Touchpad.

iFixit doesn't sell it, neither other common stores.

I wonder what will happen 1 year from now, when our batteries will need replacement.

Is this a good question?

For the moment, look on eBay. For the future, eBay will be a good source still, I would look for them to eventually come out of China - like most of the aftermarket things today. If there is any real need for a product someone will make it.

My guess leaned more towards China making batteries

I agree, no later than last week, I found a battery on Ebay from HK, for a Palm TX which is quite old. You shouldn't worry about it, they'll probably make batteries when there will be a demand.

Honestly, the best way to get parts for the HP Touchpads is to buy dead ones in bulk and get spare parts to use on yours. HP has no intent to support this thing, so you're probably going to have to dumpster dive for parts.

The only part I sort of see non OEM vendors doing is batteries. That's it. The rest will need to come out of dead tablets.
