Kobo battery?

I bought an older Kobo from one of the Goodwill auctions. I think the battery is failing - I have to charge it up more than once a week, even when not in use. Is there a way to replace the battery easily? Probably a mistaken purchase- I wanted a cheap reader that just used my Kobo library (400+ books unread). I don't mind the slow page turning, but it's really getting annoying to pick it up and it's always wanting to get a charge.

You'll probably get more responses in the dedicated Kobo forum. Depending on which device it is it may be easier or harder to open it up, but I don't think you can replace the battery without some soldering.

There's a picture guide for the Kobo Touch here:

I've used NewPower99.com (available via Amazon) for other devices, but they don't have a listing for Kobo.
You might contact them anyway and see what they say. They supply the battery and needed tools, as well as an on-line video.
Maybe they will add Kobo, now that Walmart is selling Kobo in the US
