I have not had much luck with lithium type batteries either, nowhere near as reliable or long-lasting as NiMH in my experience. If the Glo battery is replacable, I wonder if there is enough room to replace it with something bigger? I wouldn't mind the extra weight if I could get more reading time from it.
