    How did you send it? And how much did it cost to send it Germany – Spain?

    I am checking DHL but I only found that you are not allowed to send batteries that can not be removed from the device.

    Could you explain how you did it? That would be cool.

    so i already have it. it seems they sent me new one (or refrubished) from china using taxless priority shipping. i think that after they received mine in spain, in 2-3 days they sent this one from china. they told me that they will repair old one (replace battery), nobody told me before they will exchange. box was open, but notebook looks new compared to my son’s 3m old (had scratches, etc) and have protective foil on it. for now i’ve only checked version and it seems same i had before – bios 5/12/2017. i will check more and battery when come back from holidays.

    my ezbook only gives me around 3.5 to 4 hours max nowadays, im sure it used to give me more.

    I only use it for browsing on edge and on the battery bar app the discharge rate seems to stay around 9-10k.

    its annoying to have to charge several times a day

WTF gearbest?!? green light on power adapter is ON, red charching light on ezbook is ON, windows says power is connected, but battery % is only dropping. any sugestions?

    @steve: well thats exactly how mine was doing. After some weeks the batterylife will start decreasing rapidly

    @SB: I sent mine today to GB service in Alicante Spain, lets see what happens. But what they did to you is a joke….

    yeah i just made a video for them that shows it doesn’t charge. they will probably tell me to send it back again… btw: battery bar shows info that is it charching 11400 mW, but windows says “connected, discharching” and all my other laptops display “connected, charching”. could it be charger this time? i soon should receive replacement 3A/12V charger that i’ve ordered 1,5m ago from ali, but i don’t think it will help, i will probably go for refund till paypal protection last.

    Update:

    Mine arrived today from Spain (GB support center Alicatne). It is definetly a used one, slightly dirty, no protectice foil on the screen etc. Battery has a full runtime of 4hrs. After using it for a some hours, it looks to work perfectly. However it gets really hot, right side of the body.

    I bet the battery will die too as it is asically the same version. Let´s see what happens.

    check how many watt it is using when it gets hot, under 8 it should stay cool.
    check if the heat sink is ok (pad / paste / screws)

    Another update:

    I got my Jumper replaced some months ago and I am using an AC Adaptor from Amazon. Specs: 12V 3000mAh.

    The battery is better than the one before and the heat issues are gone. However the full runtime is dropping fast now and i guess the battery is about to die in the next weeks.

    I am thinking of keeping the the notebook and replacing the battery….but first I will read through the battery replacement thread 🙂

    Fun fact: The notebook freezes when the AC Adaptor is plugged in and the notebook isn’t used for a while.

    if it would be easy, they would be on ALI Express.
    in this case it is an unknown company, with unknown shipping and unknown warranty – but nice link anyhow at the keyboard thread.
