    Thrive 10 battery prices

    I was looking for a battery. Once, long ago, I bought one for about twenty dollars, don't recall where.
    The prices I see now are around sixty. Few exceptions on ebay but I'd be scared to get there, never know if it might have been used or other such junk.
    Any suggestions of a reputable place selling the original batteries?

    I got it too. thanks!
    Now, why the rotation routine?
    I did read long ago in an old post about charge to 50% and put in the frig. Not sure if correct. Any suggestions?

    Refrigeration really doesn't have much effect on life.
    Using the battery is probably the best for it.

    I am not finding a reasonable battery solution either. I bought 2 extras several years ago and now all 3 are severely degraded. It is sad to say the batteries are worth more money than the thrive! Guess its time to start tablet shopping. I just bought one of the cheap Toshiba quad core laptops and I really like it. $270 for a win laptop with 1tb HD. Any suggestions on a thrive 10 replacement?

    I recently picked up a asus me301t 16gb Tegra 3 for $105. Waiting on an exchange because the refurbishing was not like new. But a solid tablet with good reviews. An upgrade to my Nexus 7 2012.
