KPW1 battery replacement

I'm still using my KPW1 released in 2012. Wondering when should I replace the battery (I'll get a third-party to do it in my country). I suddenly don't want it to die on me. I use it couple of hours every day and charge it once every 10 days or so.

If the battery is glued and cannot be replaced, I might get a voyage instead or voyage 2 if it ever comes out.

The PW1's battery isn't glued in place, unlike some other Kindle models, so it's pretty easy to replace.

I have all three Paperwhite models and a Voyage. I know the PW3 and the Voyage get shorter battery life but I can't really tell it from normal use. I also can't tell the difference in my Paperwhite 1 and 2's battery life.

I've been getting Kindles since the Kindle Keyboard first came out and all those old Kindles are in the hands of friends now and all still get great battery life. If your battery seems fine I don't think it's time to panic. It'll probably last years more.

Of course you never know but I'd say the odds are very good.
