I have quite a few electronic books, all of which need new batteries. Unfortunately, I have not been able to secure a reliable and inexpensive supply of the needed AG-13 batteries. Fry’s sells them for about $2.00 per battery, but doesn’t have a large supply on hand. At 3 batteries per book, I need a LOT of batteries. Radio Shack has a lot of batteries for sale, but at about $5.00 per battery, it would be cheaper for me to buy a new book instead of a set of replacement batteries.
Well, Publications International Ltd. sells replacement batteries. However, I’m not a big fan of the 4-6 weeks for delivery. I just noticed that I could have called in the order at (800) 700-4710 instead of mailing in my payment. I suppose that could have shaved off a couple days in the fulfillment process. Still, 4-6 weeks? After getting accustomed to Amazon Prime, 4-6 weeks just feels Jurassic.
