[Original GPD XD] Faulty battery, dying or something else?
« on: January 01, 2019, 01:14:51 am »
So, i was playing with my XD yesterday. Everything was fine. When i finished playing i turned the power off like i always do. After a few hours i went to play again and the first thing i noticed is that the battery lost around 20% for a couple of hours, also the device was a little warm, it was strange since it never happened before. I tried to play again, but i noticed that the device was getting hotter than usual. I stopped playing after that.

Today i opened the device. The battery isn't swollen, at least. The device it's still warm, even after a full shutdown. Yesterday it was with 75%. Today it was at 24% and i didn't played not even once. It only stopped getting hot after i left the battery unconnected for a few hours.

Seems to me that this battery it's done for good. Should i just replace it then? Here comes the next question, is anyone selling and shipping batteries worldwide for the original gpd xd. I live in Brazil, South America.

kingparts.com is based in Paraguay and I believe has the battery in stock although I think they are a physical store and doesn't ship.
Not positive though so you can reach out to them

Thanks MJPIA, i know about them. Like you said, even though they are located in border with my country they won't ship it. My hope would be finding someone close to them in a facebook group dedicated to the gpd xd that could ship it to my city. Thanks for the suggestion. :)

Hi! Happy new year!

I am coming across a very limited shipment of original, GPD XD batteries. If you would like one, which are extremely hard to find, let me know.

I can invoice you for one & I can ship to Brazil as well.

Price:  $35 +int'l shipping charge
