NOOK (Classic) batteries on sale for $9.95

Best Buy has replacement batteries for the E-Ink NOOKs (SKU 9875521) on sale at $9.95, including the little screwdriver. Regular price is $29.95, so this is a deal.

 

According to the Best Buy web site, almost all of the stores near me have them in stock. I might be tempted to pick one up.

 

I have no idea how long this sale is expected to last.

 

Oh, and lookie here, it's eligible for 18-month financing. ???? :smileytongue:

Re: NOOK (Classic) batteries on sale for $9.95

I wonder how long the original batteries are designed to last?  Mine still seems to be holding a charge pretty well and it's almost a year old.

I haven't had any trouble with my battery either but it would be nice to have a backup.

Re: NOOK (Classic) batteries on sale for $9.95

Guess I know where I'm going on my luch break tomorrow! Thanks Doug for the heads up. Don't know when or if I'll need one but at that price it's better to get it now in case I do need it sometime later.

Thanks, Doug!  We're a two nook family, so it would be nice to have at least one on hand.  Cancer's expensive, so I might have to finance!

Re: NOOK (Classic) batteries on sale for $9.95

Just ordered one for store pick-up. Too good of a deal to pass up for a back up. My Nook is almost a year old but good precaution. Actually this is my refurbished replacement Nook so who knows where it has been!  Thanks Doug!

I'm thinking of buying one tomorrow too - may go in a drawer and sit for who knows how long, but eventually might need it.

Thanks Doug! 

 

I purchased and scheduled for in store pick up.  My Nook is a year old now and still holds a good charge too - but it never hurts to be prepared :smileyhappy:

Re: NOOK (Classic) batteries on sale for $9.95

Thanks a lot Doug!  My Nook is only a few months old and I'm planning on wearing out the battery.  So I picked one up.  With the likelihood that the original nook will be no longer produced by the time that I need it, I figure a battery that collects dust is worth the $10.

 

Thanks.

Re: NOOK (Classic) batteries on sale for $9.95

I plan on buying two seeing my wife and both have Nooks. I checked the B&N site and they no longer have batteries on there accessories page. Not to fuel a rumor, BUT does this mean this is the end of the Nook Classic?

Re: NOOK (Classic) batteries on sale for $9.95

Thank you Doug!  I ordered two batteries - one for me and one for my daughter who has her Nook at college.  I had been thinking about buying an extra battery "just in case."  With this pricing I could afford to buy my daughter a "just in case" extra battery, too.

 

Thanks again!

keithk,

 

When I did a quick search for nook battery this popped right up - they still have them so not sure they are going anywhere (yet...)

Re: NOOK (Classic) batteries on sale for $9.95

Just to ask to be clear - I just got my Nook and the battery is working great.  If I were to jump on this deal it is more in anticipation that eventually the battery will wear itself down, not hold a charge as much etc and I may want to replace it right?  even if it a year or more from now.  I am thinking that would be what I am buying this for.

 

if so, is this common, should i expect eventually I will ant to replace anyway?  I am fine if that is the case, not complaining, just trying to decide if this is an investment (even if it is just a $10 one) or not I want to make.

Re: NOOK (Classic) batteries on sale for $9.95

Even though it's only $10 I'm still deciding.  If I were to sell my Nook (assuming there's a Nook Classic 2) I would just tell whoever I give it to that it has the original battery.

I would expect a hardward upgrade before the battery dies on this one.

Thanks for the heads up Doug. I just ordered 2, one for myself and one for my girl friend. I think it is always good to be ready for disaster:smileyhappy:

Re: NOOK (Classic) batteries on sale for $9.95

In addition to a back-up battery for an amazing price let's not forget this comes with the little screwdriver!!!!  So we get an accessory tool.  For the cost is almost a no brainer even though my battery is charging fine.  Just "insurance".
