Out of curiosity i bought a Chinese no name tablet from ebay. It was only €50 and it had pretty good specs for it price. I didn’t know what to espect but i took the gamble. And it was a good tablet. The tablet works like a charm. Especially when compared to my old Google Nexus 7 tablet which was a nightmare.
It has a nice bright and sharp 10″ screen with a very good viewing angle. Camera is not that good. But ok, i am not using that really. The tablet has a 3G modem. Which i use so i inserted a SIM card.
Ok what are the drawbacks:
- Screen is not glass but a very hard plastic. It scratches easier,
- Battery life………barely one day and it is empty,
- Don’t buy it for the sound quality, it sounds like crap 😉
Now the scope of this post. Upgrading the battery! I took the tablet apart and i found a very small battery inside a big case. So there are some possibilities for upgrading to a bigger battery. After some searching on ebay and ali i found a battery that will fit the case of the tablet.
There is now a big improvement in battery life! More then 1 day with intensive use. No problem. So think this modification was worth the effort. The new battery was only €12. Which brings the tablet total price on €62. Great deal!
