... Anyone knows where to find battery replacements for the Jetbook Color 2 ?
This might be the right one...

https://www.batterydepot.com/pr-0015?utm_source=google_shopping#product-info-specifications

Or on Amazon...

https://www.amazon.com/Portable-Ultralast-PRB-3-Lithium-Polymer/dp/B076P86NKT

It looks like the one this site says fits the JetBook Color (which may or may not be the same size as the JetBook Color 2).

Not positive the PRB-3 and the CS-AEJ001SL are the same battery, but they look a lot alike.

And this is the result Google returned when I did a search for "Jetbook Color 2 replacment battery" — so it looks hopeful.

Apparently you still buy these things new for only $500.

Don't worry on my account. I was just surprised that a 2012 e-Reader was still selling for $500 new.

Yes, please don't. Software is utterly crap. I was just half-joking.

However it's disappointing how gray Kaleido is even after one decade of improvements. I am not even sure it's any whiter than Triton. I'm not going to be expecting Kaleido 3 to be any better, at this rate...

There's also something curious. Apparently Kaleido panel has 300DPI for blacks while Triton had only 200DPI. However both claim 100DPI for color. I guess the subpixel arrangement has changed somehow.

In my opinion the "screendoor" effect makes black text very fuzzy anyway.

I actually didn't think the software was too bad. It was slow and clunky but once you're reading a document as long as the pages turn reasonably quickly the speed doesn't matter so much. It was the screen that was awful for me - really dull, dark grey background with muddy colours. You needed to blast it with a spotlight and then it looked pretty good but not terribly practical for reading.

Now they have a built in spotlight.

Apparently the triton screen was very grey.
It will be so interesting if one could compare a Kaleido 2 device with the Jetbook Color 2 side by side. In the image on the article the screen was very very gray, the color are almost indistinguisable - but see below the image of the Nova 3 color just announced today, or the PocketBook: https://imgur.com/a/nWKIWID

I think seeing past devices the sceptical approach about color e-ink is understandable, but color is way better than the first time, and it can be useful now, not simply a gimmick. Even if they color filter is clearly visible and it's still inferior to a regular screen experience.

And I'm pleasantly surprised by the fast iteration of Kaleido. Kaleido 1 in 2020, now Kaleido 2 and 2.5 (only Sony devices, right?) and there's talk about Kaleido 3 already? Awesome. I also think my next e-reader will probably a color one.

How much the color filter disturb the b/w experience?
Images and video of those screens seems fine.
I would like to figure it out
- if those screens can be used without using the lateral light, or keeping it at very minimum.
- if i would end up using it just with coloured material because my nova is better for b/w.

maybe i would try first with a smartphone, if they can make one with google play
