I have a hard failure of the battery in this unit.  

It will now only work when plugged into the wall charger.  I did purchase a battery pack online but when It arrived it was not exactly the same so I exchanged the bloated battery in my unit with one of the batteries in the new battery pack.... Still will not hold a charge.

Let me back up and state also there are two batteries in this unit connected together via a circuit board ( Which I think is the charger)  I think the real problem is in that board.  In addition to this, one of the batteries was very bloated almost to the point of cracking open the case of the unit.  I was afraid the Lithium battery might explode so I changed it out.

As mentioned by another member on this forum (Pellegon) Onda Tablet Company has very poor customer service.  I was told I would need to wait until a battery became available "On the website"...Still waiting!!!"

I purchased this unit because it has all I wanted in a Surface Pro 3 and Two full size usb ports. Wow my dream had come true at "Less than half the cost of the raved Surface Pro!"   

Well you know what they say about things that look "Too good to be true"  Now I am stuck to my power cord and a $545.00 purchase.

At this point I can only see taking the hit again for the Surface pro 3 but I hate to give up the luxury of TWO full sized usb ports and this big wide screen.

So has anyone out there found a solution to fixing this problem with the Onda V116w (Windows only tablet) ???  Maybe a source that will supply the correct battery??? Any other configuration of battery that might work on this unit???

Im open to any ideas to salvage this tablet.

      hi all 
      got my v80+ dual boot a couple of weeks now - its ok - cheap and cheerful
      *** i only really use WINDOW 10  as i have android on my phone 
      but lately , i noticed the tablet battery drains really fast in sleep mode - by power button as well as bottom left window icon / power / sleep
      i timed it yesterday - 2pm 100% by 11pm 47 % , this morning 2% at 7am 
      anyone else ? any ideas what to do - i have turned on the battery saver , checked no connection when sleep etc ...it seems silly if i have to turn OFF the thing every time !?

      Hi I just bought an Onda Obook 20 Plus and when in Android mode and battery at 100% I put the tablet on standby by pushing the power button. 5 hours later the battery is drained
      Anyone having the same issue?
      Thanks in advance

      Hey when my 919v air dual OS is on it won't charge, even on a 2.5a 5v charger. it charges slowly when off however. Same thing in android and windows. has anyone else experienced this?
      Is there a fix? does your tablet charge well?
