Self replaceable battery

I am looking into ereaders. Do any of them have batteries that can be replaced by me instead of shipping them to the manufacturer? I know the batteries last quite a while, but when it eventually does die I want to be able to replace it myself. Thanks.

the Hanlin V3 (also known as Astak EZreader, or Bebook, or lbook, or Pixelar...) uses a Nokia mobile phone battery, and is easily replaceable (just unscrew the cover, and then change battery)

The Kindle version 1 has a replaceable battery available from Amazon. $19.99

Just flip off the back, unsnap the battery, and replace.

I just bought a new battery for a one-year old kindle, which was really running really slow. With the new battery, it is just like new!

The same question just came up as well in the Sony section, with an affirmative answer. As of yet PRS-505 accu's seem the only ones available, but those should also work on a PRS-600. Of course, the latter itself is fairly easy to open using the two screws at the top and bottom.

Don't forget the jetBook Lite, which uses rechargeable AA flashlight batteries.
