    I think they haven't responded to it yet. On the other hand, having to ship the tablet to them and waiting for its return might be too much time and money.

    Battery replacement by NI is feasible. I just sent my Adam to them so that they can change battery.
    Cost? 30$ for the battery + 13$ work + shipping cost to the service center (20$n for me, I am based in Europe)

Anyway I am going to order them tonight. hopefully work on the connections and charging in the next week or so. Although it worries me I seriously dont want to end up like what PsychodelEKS's project ended up with. Will post the results then.
    Any luck?

    The three cells used are Sanyo 18650 (Korean regulation R1112). The specifications are:

    Part number: UR18650A
    Type: Lithium-Ion
    Nominal Capacity: 2150mAh (0.43A discharge)
    Nominal Voltage: 3.60V (0.43A discharge)
    End Voltage: 3.0V
    Charging Current (Std.): 1.505A (0~+40C)
    Charging Voltage: 4.20V (+/- 0.03V)
    Charging Time (Std.): 3 hours
    Discharging Current (Std.): 1.075A (-20~60C)
    Discharging Current (Max): 2.15A (-20~60C), 4.30A (0~40C)
    Internal Resistance: <100mOhms (AC impedance 1kHz)
    Length: 64.9mm
    Diameter: 18.3mm
    End tab diameter: 9mm

    Maximum discharge current as a single cell is as above. However after assembling to a battery pack there is the limitation of maximum discharge current because of protection circuit and protection device.

    Charge current must be below 2.50A per cell. Charging voltage must be 4.20V. In case of a battery voltage below 3.0V it should be charged with pre-charge current below 0.1A. When the voltage exceeds 3.0V the standard charging rates can be used. Do not constant (trickle) charge. Do not over-discharge below 2.0V per cell. Do not charge outside temperature range 0~40C.

    Does this mean that we should not leave the Adam plugged in to the charger all the time?
    Notion Ink ADAM LCD/wifi
    Cromnia Rom was my favorite.
    Loved using VEGAn-GE-Adam.

    No. That directive applies to the battery controller circuit the cells are connected to. Because Li-ion cells have such stringent requirements all battery packs have a micro-controller attached that manages the charging and discharging of the cells and monitors their temperature. The micro-controller is loaded with firmware that tells it the specifications of the cells connected to it. The micro-controller can communicate with the host usually using something like an IIC (I2C) bus. It is responsible for charging the cells regardless of an external power source being connected.
