I figured it would be a unique, low demand battery with a high replacement cost. So I went out and bought a spare Veer for $60.

There was a member clearing out a bunch of webOS stuff in Marketplace not too long ago. (It's a closed thread now) He had Veer batteries on his list of items.

I've never been sure about where to find one either. I do know it was revealed in the Veer disassemble that webOS Internals did that the battery is in fact a replaceable unit - I'm just not sure that any vendors produced batteries for this short production run device

Yeah, I popped the back off according to the webos nation instructions... not difficult. The battery is unique in that the power contacts are on the battery body (not edge)... never seen anything like that before.

Cheers. If I don't find another battery, i'm gonna miss my veer.

That's a major reason I got a Pre 2, because I expected to be with webOS for the long haul

Just received mine this morning, it fits perfectly inside the cage, the battery is correctly recognized and Dr. Battery shows all battery parameters. Battery health need to be tested over several weeks but so far so good.

After dropping my Veer and the screen stopped working I figured I had nothing to lose by pulling the battery. I used my thumb nail around the edge, popped the back off, removed the battery holder (stainless steel) and pulled the battery. It was easy as pie. Not something I would do regularly (like travelling with a spare battery) but easy to do.
BTW, when I reassembled it, the screen was working again. :-)

My almost 2 years old Veer could not hold the charge till the end of the day. I have just purchased a replacement battery from the link mentioned by TheOneill Feb-2013, #7. It costed around $30, shipped from Singapore, took around 3 weeks until it was delivered. The package says CS-HVP160SL. I could open the back cover of Veer with my fingernails. Lifted metal parts around battery then old BP3 battery could slide out. Inserted a replacement and it seems like working so far. No tool was needed. The data was all safe but I backed up everything as good as I could before opening the case. If the replacement does not do a good job, I will post an update.
