One neat thing about Barnes & Noble’s Nook eReaders is that they come with a user-replaceable battery.

I’m a big fan of devices with replaceable batteries because they give users plenty of options. Besides allowing consumers to extend a device’s operation time by bringing a spare, replaceable batteries mean that you don’t have to send out your device when its time to get a new power source. Replacement is usually cheaper too (Here’s a sampling of Nook battery prices, which can range from $20 to $40).

Although figuring out how to change the Nook’s battery isn’t immediately obvious, it’s actually easier than you might think. After going through our step-by-step guide, you’ll be flaunting your Nook battery changing skills to friends and family in no time. All you need is a small Phillips screwdriver and nimble fingers.
