Battery issues for people outside US

It still has a non-replaceable battery that requires a mailback to Amazon in the US for replacement. People report the battery lasts about a year, then it's $80+freight to get it replaced. The Nook has a user-replaceable battery (about $6 I hear). I will never buy a gadget that requires me to spend a huge amount in international shipping to get the battery replaced, to say nothing of the outrageous profit Amazon is making from the battery itself. Epic fail.
