Question prs-650 battery wearing out. Sell/replace ?

my prs-650, which i have used daily for 2-3 years seems to be coming to the end of its life. The battery is now only good for a couple of days reading before a recharge is needed. I have tried the usual fixes - soft/hard resets. I think it has simply exceeded the x 1000 recharges that the battery is designed for.

so my question is - how long now before it becomes completely unusable. Would it be ethical to auction it with a " short battery life" disclaimer, i.e. it is still good for plenty more use if kept on a charger or given a daily boost.

I looked at replacement batteries on amazon but reviews were not encouraging & it's probably more cost effective to auction as-is or to store as an emergency back-up device.

luckily I bought a spare, a couple of years back, which I never used so I have switched over to that, while I ponder the "benefit" of getting a newer model but then losing prs-plus.
