As we all know, Lithium Ion batteries have a very finite life, "X amount of cycles" and even lose their ability to hold charge without being used (aging). Most of us probably have an old laptop that can't be unplugged for longer than a few mins vs 3hrs when we first bought it. This is a real concern for any of these self-contained bike lights in the long term.
I recently scored a Light in Motion Taz 1200 on chainlove to replace/upgrade my older lights but it got me wondering if I really need to retire them. They're a couple older NiteRiders Lumia 650s I bought back in August 2012 and they just don't seem to hold a charge quite as long as they used to. It's only a matter of time before the batteries in them give up the ghost.
Has anyone broken these open and found batteries on ebay or something that could work to bring them back to life? I suppose this will eventually become a concern with the Taz as well.
