Live of a PDA battery

I didn't find any detailed specs on the battery at Toshiba's web site.

What I suspect the details are, is that the battery is not "user" serviceable.

It is likely soldered to the circuitry inside the PDA, and may be a custom size that will only be available from Toshiba.

If the PDA is assembled in such a manner that it is not practical to open the case, the battery may not be replaceable at all.

After 3 years, the cost of replacing the battery may be more than the PDA is worth.

After 3 years, I would think that you would want to replace the PDA anyways. With the rate that PDA technology is changing, in 3 years it would be hard to tell if it would even be compatible with available software of the time.
Just like with any other computer technology, the life span is going to be much less than 3 years.
