    Thats why i am going to replace the battery with a better one when mine goes bad. Even though the battery isnt that great, it still can be ran off of wall power, if u were just going to use it around ur house

    Well that's not the thread I was reading, but certainly looks like some good information for the kyros users.

    Mine seems to be kaput

    I received my tablet on April 25th, yesterday - June 22, 2011 while sitting at home it was plugged in and then all of a sudden stopped charging, then the battery was completely drained within 2 hours. No matter how I maneuvered the cord it wouldn't charge.
    Talked to Coby this morning and they want me to send it back to them. So disappointed!

    Same crap just happened to me. Last night I put it away FULLY CHARGED. Today I turned it on, got the batter low message and it refuses to charge. I tried other cords, USB, and an external battery pack. Nada. I am disgusted with Coby right now.

    I did a Google search and found quite a few other complaints about tablets suddenly refusing to charge. I think we will see more and more as time goes by. I got mine in January and it's outrageous to think it only lasted 5 months. I emailed Coby to complain. I doubt they'll do anything for me. If they replace it should I expect it to happen again in another 5 months?

    And it gets even better. If you don't care for your battery properly, you won't even get the mythical 300 charges out of it.

    I suspect the kids in the original post of this thread were running the battery completely out before charging, not knowing that's a bad thing for Lithium-Ion batteries.

    way. If not, you'll find an excuse.

    You're probably right-I didn't know that either so that's probably what happened to mine too. I never purposely let it run completely out but a few times it did because of that stupid bug where it refuses to stay asleep. I'd set it down, fully charged and get distracted and come back the next day to see the battery had gotten completely drained. I'm very disappointed in Coby right now. I have a $200 paperweight. Now we know why they only have a 90 day warranty!
