DXG battery life

Hi, I'm out of ideas and looking for some.
My battery life is down to about 3 days.

Wireless is off.
I've reset to factory,
re-added my books and the .json file,
let it index over 1,000 books - none are stuck (yes 1,000 is a lot, there's still over 2Gb free)
deleted all collections with more than a dozen books in them, made new collections with new names, and added the books to them
no change.

I can put it down in the morning with 3/4 charge and be almost out when I wake it in the evening.

I'm left with replacing the battery - they're cheap enough, but I'm loath to do it without being fairly sure that it will do the job.

Oh, it's 2 1/2 years old and I've read about 500 assorted books & short stories on it.


Any ideas before I buy a battery please?

eBay seems to have a lot of DX battery sellers, but all the batteries look the same, so I'd just buy the cheapest - unless anyone thinks that's not the best idea (I'm in the UK BTW).

Thanks for reading.
