After such a great success with first Jolla tablet, maybe same approach will help Jolla to provide to current customers a top notch spare battery. :)

Why isn't there a spare battery in the store? Its the whole point of having the replaceable battery option in a phone.

Volumes too small? Some component being hard to get up in volume? Logistics?

Has Jolla ever responded to this? We're in the blue here, batteries will sooner or later start going bad.

Whatever is the reason an Indiegogo campaign will help them to provide the spare and help us to get one and may be a betetr quality at a lower price.

Why? I mean, from the slush event, and in the official tablet video it seems as they have already progressed far enough to have a working demo sample. That must have taken a LOT more money to develop than what the campaign will give. It was set at goal $380000, now with over $1000000 that is STILL a very low for figure to finance the development of the tablet (mind salaries for + 150 employees). Then a part of this goes into the cost for the actual hardware of the tablets to send to the first customers.

Whats a battery that's already been developed in comparison to this?

@Larsward, I do not mean to develop a battery. Jolla need to look for a manufacturer who is able to provide a better battery, with bigger capacity and last longer. A better one. I opened this thread in the hope people like you will support my idea and than together we'll support Jolla.

@tvicol, I am sorry, I realize that I sort of highjacked your question here. But I still think that what is on most peoples mind is that they want to be able to have at least a working spare. Whats their plan? I respect a company needs to keeps some information and roadmap internally. Thats understandable, but in that case just say so. Or if its something they won't do, or has shifted to future, just say so. We're a mature community and we can take it whatever it is, I think. But if cybette says they're gonna be better, I don't see it. Is Uitukka a past thing? Are we moving to 2.0 directly? Right now were sitting yet again with a lot of questions.

We should of course support Jolla the best we can. But isn't that what we do? Or are we overloading them with questions?

Not only batteries : leather cases also are a must. If we manage to make our precious devices long-lasting thanks to replacement components (battery), we also need to protect them. During its lifetime, a well-managed phone will use three batteries and three cases.

There are enough ways to protect your Jolla. I don't think that Jolla have to offer leather cases, rubber sleeves, airbags or whatever else, what is just a nice to have accessory. But I think they have to offer a spare battery because we won't get one from anywhere else and their are no alternatives, when the batteries loose capacity. Don't forget, that we bought a device which was advertised with a replaceable battery.
