I’ve been using my fairphone for 2 years now (July) and I noticed the last couple of weeks my battery is behaving very irregularly. I’ve tried multiple resets and stuff but decided in the end, after a great many loading cycles it’s time to purchase a new battery.
When ordering it in the shop, I noticed delivery costs were almost €8 which is quite a lot compared with the price of a battery (€20) and on top of that I started thinking it’s not very ‘ecological’ to have a small parcel like that send over from the warehouse to Antwerp.
I was wondering if there’s any other citizens who have come across this issue as well… Maybe it would be worth to set up some ‘group purchase’ scheme or a small depot with some stock somewhere in Antwerp/Brussels from where spare parts can be distributed more ecologically :).
I’m going to Amsterdam quite regularly by train so maybe it’s even worth looking into placing an order and arranging a pickup at the headquarters of FP (I saw it’s been done in the past)…
So fellow Belgians, feel free to shoutout if you are happy to solve this issue together
