Verizon offers free replacement battery covers for the DROID

Posted in Verizon by Conner Flynn on January 3rd, 2010

Have you been having problems with a loose battery cover on your Motorola Droid? Maybe you’ve lost the battery cover completely because of it. Well, if you need a battery cover for your Droid, Verizon Wireless is now offering replacement battery covers with overnight shipping, and it’s totally free.

Replacement covers normally cost about $5, so it isn’t surprising that since these are free, Verizon has run out of inventory. No word yet on when they will get another shipment, but it won’t hurt to keep watching Verizon’s site if you need one.

MacBook Pro battery replacement details

MacBook Pro battery replacement detailsThe battery in Apple’s new 17″ MacBook Pro is pretty amazing. With a single charge it can power the notebook for about eight hours while using the NVIDIA 9400M graphics processor or seven hours while the 9600M GT chip is at work. Also, it has a charge cycle life of 1,000 charges which is a quantum leap ahead of a standard laptop battery.

But no matter how good the specs are, it’s bound to have problems. Most likely problems will occur after the one-year battery warranty has expired. This one can’t be replaced by end-users, so what happens if it dies after the five-year lifespan and you want to swap it out for a new one ? (Even though chances are you’ll have a new notebook by then)

Fujitsu-Siemens offers Lifebook4Life laptop replacement warranty

Fujitsu-Siemens offers Lifebook4Life laptop replacement warrantyFujistu-Siemens in the UK recently announced their Lifebooks4Life program, which entitles you to a new laptop of the same value (after they adjust 10 percent for inflation) every three years for the rest of your life. Of course, you’ll have to purchase a three year warranty with each new machine. That machine has to remain in warranty. That means, no mods, no cheap other name parts etc.

Even so, a new notebook every three years for the price of the warranty? Kind of life joining the notebook of the month club, except in this case it’s every three years. There’s got to be catch. Anyway, life is no fun unless you are free to mod, use cheap substandard parts, rip that tag off the mattress that tells you not to rip it and switch computer brands now and then.

Nintendo DS replacement lightsaber stylus

Nintendo DS replacement lightsaber stylus
C’mon guys. We all love lightsabers, but there are limits to even your dorkiness right? Probably not. I can practically hear you just drooling over these trinkets and mouthing a firm OMG. Basically your DS stylus can now be replaced with Star Wars lightsabers. It will make it look like a tiny Jedi is attacking your touch screen.

They’re officially licensed and everything. And especially appropriate when playing Star Wars games. It should be noted that they are too big to fit in the DS stylus slot. But who cares, you’ll be too busy geeking it up. Get a 3-pack of the standard ones for $7.99, or you can splurge and spend $16.99 on a pair that actually light up with LED blades.

Activision now offering refunds for Guitar Hero Wii

Guitar Hero III disc replacement program
Last week we told you about how Activision was having some issues with turnaround time for the Guitar Hero III: Legends of rock discs for the Wii. The turnaround time was so bad that they are adding a refund to the list of solutions for the sound issues found with the original game discs. You might remember, the first batch of Guitar Hero III discs for the Wii only included stereo sound, as opposed to Dolby. Apparently Activision is taking 3-4 weeks to get new discs out to users. This sucks because you have to send them your old disc before they’ll send you a new one. Here are the details:

Activision and Nintendo re-mastered the game and will provide a replacement disc to consumers with Dolby digital surround sound. If you want a full refund instead of a replacement disc, you can download their refund form, which outlines the refund requirements.

Guitar Hero III disc replacement program
Some Guitar Hero III owners for the Wii have been stuck in mono for months now, after a problem with some of the games. At long lat Activision is finally ready to start issuing replacement discs.

According to some end-users, Activision is now sending out pre-paid envelopes, so customers have to ship back their faulty GH III disc and wait “3 to 4 weeks” before getting the new, stereo-enabled one for free. I hear ya, fans. That sucks! Some of you can’t live without your favorite game for that long.
