Replace a Fitbit for US$133 vs Replace Battery for US$10? It is such an ewaste to throw expensive electronics away just because the battery has died...

@danie10 I had a pair of headphones that only lasted about two years which had no option for repair; only replacement:

It’s pretty insane things are getting smaller and less user serviceable. There’s such a limited audience of people demanding the opposite.

@danie10 @djsumdog Does any new smartphone offer easy battery replacement possibility these days? Just checked Samsung A8 - it requires hair dryer, dedicated tools and introduces risk of permanently damaging the phone. sosav.com/guides/mobiles/samsu
