2.0 out of 5 stars one thing wrong with these...., February 1, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Boogie Board 8.5-Inch LCD Writing Tablet, Pink (PT01085PNKA0002) (Personal Computers)
Bought these for my grandchildren after they went crazy over my son in laws tablet. When I saw them in color on line I thought all the better for 4 girls of varied ages. Plus, they were less expensive that the plain silver one. Was delighted when they arrived, until I did a bit of research to find out why the silver ones were more expensive. They were the newer models. The "original" boogie boards did not have a "replaceable" battery. There was a limited amount of erasures and then you had to throw it away. So I sent them back and got the newer models that sold for around $40, but you can replace the battery.

Curious Which model is the "Newer" one you got instead Anita. I agree, not being able to replace the battery is a poor design. If all else is the same it should not double the price of the item to simply have a battery door, so I am expecting/hoping the new model has some extra features the 'original' did not?

For most people this won't be a problem -- you can write 50,000 pages on it, so even if you're erasing 50 times a day, every day, it will last years. It may not be worth almost double the price to be able to replace the battery.

I don't know about you, but my 3 and 5 year olds were able to burn through the battery in less than 2 years. Now our board is garbage.

Yea but 20 quid every 2 years isn't that bad

Mine is also worn out after two to three years and was used maybe a total of around 100 times. Waste of money.

Do we know which is the newer version, yet? For me, it's about waste. I'd rather replace a battery that I can recycle instead of the whole tablet.

Boogie Board 10.5 Inch LCD Writing Tablet (Black)

This one has replaceable batteries and costs $36.99 It also has a lock for the erase button so you won't accidentally erase something you want to keep.

There is also this one: Boogie Board Jot eWriter with 8.5-Inch LCD, Blue (JT0220002) for around $31
