A "What Comes in the Box?" Question

I just received my three pp ereaders and while I was taking them out to charge them and make sure I had everything I noticed that each box came with a battery in the ereader and one in the box. I have not tried charging the extra batteries yet but they look exactly like the ones in the ereader.

I did not get the wrist leash that is mentioned on the side of the box.

Is this a new change or did I just get lucky?

I think you got lucky my friend. Unless they have changed (which I don't believe they have) they are only meant to come with one battery each.

So you have all up 3 spare batteries?

Extra Batteries sold separately, and not cheap. Someone was not drinking their coffee Black.
You can use a Camera wrist or Neck strap. The ones with the tiny woven cord end.
About $6 at my local Target store. ( I have a neck strap). You got the real bargain Bundle

Swap you my wrist strap for one of your batteries

Hmm, I think there has been a mix-up in packing the boxes. I know that my PP came with the battery installed, so perhaps they are in a transition of going from shipping with the battery installed to just supplying the battery requiring installation when you get the device (much like mobile phones).

Lucky! I got everything the box says I should. I wish I had gotten a extra battery like you.

Dear silens-unus:

On rare occasions the factory does not install the battery in the Pocket PRO before shipping. Are you sure those are spare batteries? I mean you can certainly keep them; but I just want to be sure they are spare and not a case where the battery did not get inserted by the battery.

We WILL definitely make good on the Wrist Leashes!! Send me a PM with your real name and mailing address and I will get three out to you!!

Nothing has changed that I know of in our packs.
