And when I mention signs of degradation, I still get much longer reading times than what I see from people with KA1. So I'm fine with it.

There are no new Aura HDs. They were discontinued over two years ago.

Which was exactly what I said in my first comment: you can buy a recently-manufactured H2O, or a new H2O2, if battery life is important.

In the subthread you're replying to, I was responding to a post by Ken suggesting an Aura HD, with me saying that the Aura HD is not a good idea from a battery point of view.

I saw a 4000mAh that might just fit, as well.

Sorry, I referred to your post where you say that your H2O shows signs of battery degradation (please, look what I quoted). I don't know anything about Aura HD and thus I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

On the other hand, I think you still can buy new H2O (not H2O2) with intact battery that would operate for fairly long time (at least 3-5 years, maybe even longer).

Yes, you quoted oddly and selectively. My entire post was "If battery is a major concern, I'd suggest not getting an Aura HD, as they're pretty old now. Even my H2O is starting to show significant signs of battery life reduction, though more recently-manufactured ones should be ok. If you can wait, take a look at the new edition 2 H2O."

And then not one but two blokes went on to correct me ... by saying exactly what I just said. *headdesk*

I really don't have anything with what others say to you.

I commented what I commented and that's it.

Sorry for others commenting you wrongly, but I just wanted to point out that H2O is still great device battery wise. Even if my over 2 years old device shows some lower battery.

It will.

But, I wouldn't prefer that device, as I already explained here. And why.

@Alan_S

I took a second look at Aura2 and I am not liking what I saw as well, especially given that there is no sd card slot ;(

It seems like I cant buy Kobo because

- I need a 6 inch device ( I carry my reader in my pocket)
- I need a device with sd card support
- I need a recent device with better screen like Carta
- I need a device with front light.

As far as I can tell there is no Kobo device that has these features combined ;(


I am not sure if any of those non sd card devices`s internal memoeries can be upgraded to soemthing like 32/64 gb.

Well, that is a problem. H2O is a bit larger, but you may try to see if actual device dimension will fit in your pocket. Other features are according to your wishes.

And when you carry a Reader in your pocket, you risk it breaking. A pocket is not safe to carry an eInk Reader. So you would be best to get an H2O especially if it won't fit in your pocket.

@JSWolf

You are right and I seem to break one every 2 years But being able to not rely on additional carrying material when on the is a big plus to me.

@Alan_S

Yeah It seems bulky and wont fit into pockets well, at least not to back pockets generaly. But I appreciate all the feedback you gave. I have a much beter picture about my path with Kobo.
