First, the battery basically dies immediately, going to 50% within 6 months. This causes the unit to die suddenly because it thinks it has a charge, but it doesn't. So it dies before it can hibernate. After a year it will not hold even a minute of charge. Electrovaya has been out-of-stock for months now. When I call, they say they are coming in shortly, and that they have a better battery coming. I purchased because of the promise of true wireless, but nothing they say is true, kids screaming in the background. Anybody else have the same problems?

I'm having the same problem, the battery will not hold a charge, tablet just shuts off unexpectedly. I can not get a reply from Electrovaya regarding a battery replacement. It looks like they are getting out of the Tablet PC business, all of their on-line inventory is depleted.

Hi,
Did you contact Elecrovaya about their recommendations?

I've documented this as far back as April, and the first time I saw it was actually November of last year. You can find the whole story in the [url=http://yoda.indigofire.net/~kshehata/Electrovaya_complaint_letter.pdf]letter[/url] I've written to Electrovaya about this problem.

Bottom line: I've demonstrated the sudden shut-off to their technical team last August, and they've done nothing about it.

I have had three battery replacements. Each time the rep has been very responsive to my needs. But the problem remains. 2 questions: 1) Is electrovaya getting out of the tablet business? 2) it not will they solve their battery problem? they are after all, a battery company.

any news out there?

JOB
