Sony Reader 505 battery?

Anyone know the specks on the 505's battery? I love the quality of the image on the 505 and don't want to be forced into using a newer model once they discontinue repairs for it.

I just purchased a replacement battery on Ebay to fix, what I believe is a dead battery, a 505 that my mom owns.

Do a search for any of the follow part numbers:

1-756-769-11
LIS1382(J)
8704A41918

I only paid about $13 for the battery but won't get a chance to try it until I get the reader from her around thanksgiving.

Great!
How about the specifications for future reference (watts, volts, size-dimensions)?
I'm guessing there are tons of batts out there that would work.

Go to newpower99.com --- they have a special on the battery going. I bought mine a couple of weeks ago and revived an almost dead PRS-505. Two weeks with the new battery and fairly heavy reading, and I still have four bars from the initial charge!

This is all great and helpful in the short-term, but if we have the full specifications of what the reader requires, then we all will be able to seek out batteries into the foreseeable futures.

So, specifications please?

You've been given various places and things to check out for the battery, if you need more then do what the rest of us do... Google it, use the part numbers quoted, search on eBay and contact a seller etc...

Simply providing battery order info is not information that could be useful many years down the road when nothing is being sold that is specifically intended for the 505. A concise lists of power requirements and measurements would provide more helpful and searching information into the future when someone else is looking.

If you search this forum, you'll find that there are full instructions on how to replace a battery for the 505, complete with photos.

could you direct me to one that has the full battery specs required by the 505 with battery measurements?

Thanks!

Actually, the screen on the 650 is even better then the 505.

Yes, it's a touch screen howver the technology (at least as far as I understand) is different to the 600. The screen itself has higher contrast than the 505. So as far as I'm aware the touch screen no longer detracts from the contrast/causes glare and the screen itself is better.

I'll know more when my 650 arrives, I currently have a 600.
