SOURCE: can you get a replacement battery for a kobo touch

Will one of those extra battery packs work to power the kobo? I just bought a 'pocket juice' at walmart to use with my cell phone.
Others are saying it is not worth putting in the real battery.

My kobo is frozen on starting sync won't turn on or off

Note: If your Kobo device has been physically damaged, it is no longer covered by Kobo's limited warranty. On a Kobo eReader, a physically damaged screen will look like it's been shattered, or you may see vertical or horizontal lines on the screen with a frozen image. If you haven't dropped or damaged your Kobo eReader, but are experiencing issues, try the steps below in the order suggested.
  • Turn your eReader off and then on again.
  • If your screen is frozen, slide the power button to the right and hold it for 10 seconds. Your eReader should turn off.
  • Turn your eReader off and charge it for at least four hours. Note: Your computer should be turned on while you are charging your Kobo eReader.
  • If your eReader isn't charging, try using a different Micro USB cable or a different USB port on your computer. Note: If your eReader's battery is completely drained it can take up to 15 minutes before it reacts to being plugged into power.
  • If you're having trouble while reading a book on your Kobo Aura H2O, Kobo Aura, Kobo Aura HD, Kobo Glo, or Kobo Mini: tap the centre of the screen to bring up the Reading Menu, tap the > Home icon to return to your Home screen, then open your book again.
  • If you're having trouble while reading a book on your Kobo Touch: press the Home button and open your book again.
  • Try a basic reset.
  • If you're still having issues, consider a factory reset.
  • If you're unable to reset your device, please contact Kobo Customer Care

Kobo won't turn on, screen blank

This can happen if the battery is very, very flat. Try charging it overnight.
If charging it doesn't help, try using a paper clip in the reset hole to force a factory reset (you may lose any user-installed books).

I have to keep me kobo plugged in while I read. Can I fix this?

Unfortunately, Kobos weren't designed to replace the batteries. Short of buying a new eReader, reading with it plugged in is the only way around bad batteries.

Kobo ereader problems

Unfortunately, the batteries on Kobo were not designed to be replaced. If the batteries will no longer accept a charge, it is time for a new e-reader.

Kobo n613 not charging, no battery level indication on screen. Changed charger but still not charging. Also, do not know how to remove back cover to access the battery.

I do not have the n613 but please check your USB ports as these some time give a problem when you try to charge your battery through the computer - also check your connects from the e-reader to the computer as this could also be a problem..... if the above still does not work I suggest you plug the e-reader in and try and re update it...

Hope this Helps

My touch screen kobo reader has stopped working

Make sure the Kobo is fully charged and switched off. Hold down the 'HOME' key while turning the Kobo on. When you see the power light release the 'HOME' key. The lights will flash. Follow the onscreen prompts.

Is there a battery you can replace on the literati ereader only had sinceDec..been charged but will not turn on..hit reset did nothing?please help spent alot of money on Kobo books.

MY e-reader would not turn on either. I charged it overnight and tried the reset. I called the company and he told me that it sounds like the battery and it cannot be replaced due to the fact it is sealed. My loss! I can recover the books I bought from Kobo though.
