    hi,

    anybody knows where can i buy a replacement battery for my C8? i noticed that my battery is giving me up to 2 hours use only even if browsing or watching youtube videos. i opened up my tablet and noticed that the battery is somewhat embossed/bulky.

    self not ordered, but you can pay with paypal. so if you can't receive it, faulty, you can always claim from paypal (if the transaction is not longer then 45 days)

    bad news, changing the battery not resolving my charge problem (5 days to get 100% full charge). And when I recharge the battery (on power cable), the charge level decrease and when I remove the power cable (after few days), the battery level quickly increase to 100%. Very very wierd! Anyway, I have 2 Dropad A8, I'm going to test the good one (battery) on the broken to see if is the battery or it's another hardware problem.

    no, definitely not the firmwares, I have tested 2 battery pack on 2 different Dropad A8 with Genesis, Mod Tuen, rubberband, tsunami, alldro and hcomb thunderstorms.. anyway, the problem seem to-be not the battery's but probably the internal charger. I’ve ordered a new power cable with included charger.. I see on SLD the dropad herotab have a bypass system if this type of charger is connected.

    I give you a feedback asap about this charger on the original battery and sunsky's too.

    Hi Neurosick, I had similar charging problem. When i measured voltage of charger it was exactly 9V but later i realized that it was misleading: a not connected charger should be 11-12V to be able to charge on 9V. So i replaced it with other 9V charger ( i measured 11.5 V on disconnected charger) and it solved charging problem.
