Nice of you to show this, but I can not find that particular battery anywhere. Not even the China website.

Let us know where we can get the battery.

Since it seems like a replacement battery cannot be purchased anywhere, can the battery be bypassed to still use it plugged in? I know it defeats the purpose of a tablet, but it would be nice to still use it. Anyone have suggestions?
