Save kindle battery?

My husband is wedded to the old large-size kindles which don’t have touch screens. He learned to speed-read using his hand. His old kindle can’t be used because the home button broke off. I found him a new one. Would it be wise to try to remove the battery from the old and keep it in case he has battery problems in the future? If so, how do I do that?

The battery likely won't fit anything else and is an older formulation with a lower output. Take it out and recycle it.

(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook. Each does one thing well and the other thing poorly.)

Good luck! -- NJ
