    It may work but I would not count on it the way the TF works is that the dock battery charges the TAB battery so it may not actually power the TAB.You may very well be right but as Fred said it depends on the design of the power distribution. Since we don't have the circuit layout it is a pig in the poke as to how it will work.

    I assume that Asus TF's run off Li-On type batteries similar to those in mobile phones. I have had several mobile phones, [different models] that have had the same battery in for literally years, and still work fine. Maybe it depends on the charging regime, i.e, not giving a lot of short charges, and letting them completely discharge from time to time.

    But should the worse come to the worse, where do we go to get the battery replaced ?

    Can you get power from outlet if the battery reaches its end of life?

    You can get a new battery from the asus parts site. Many small electronics repair places can do it.

    I suspect that by the time most folks batter gets to that point it will be better to just get a new tablet. 20 months and my battery is still strong (8-10 hours of offline 720p movies)

    Actually it would be better to do the opposite with lithium batteries, namely lots of short charges to under 100% and keeping most discharges to 75% or higher.
