I was wondering if any of you have had the battery in your Kindle fail after a few months? I was considering getting a backup battery, so I was looking at the reviews on amazon. It appears that some people were having the battery only last a couple months and that it is difficult to remove. I thought that maybe it is just that only those with issues were reviewing and the percentage of Kindle owners with problems really is insignificant. I had thought to get a battery as a back up in case the one I have goes dead, but then I realized you can't charge it outside the Kindle. So I don't think I will get one at this time since I don't want to open the back up any more than necessary.
