Pictures, Videos, and more Information on Pleo.
Pardon the short post but I'm swamped with real life issues at the moment. I wanted to make sure you knew about Ugobe making available an extra battery for sale to its U.S. customers. Currenty the price is $49 and it's only one to a customer. There is no word yet on when the extra batteries will be available to international customers. This is great news for those of you that want to play with your Pleos for longer periods of time. (Be sure to give the poor little guy or gal a rest from time to time!).
Here is the E-mail that Ugobe sent out regarding the extra battery offer. You can order them from this page:
Dear Pleo Owners,
It has been a long wait, but we now have a limited quantity of extra batteries available for purchase in the US! Go to the PleoWorld store to buy.
Thank you for your enthusiasm and patience. We're glad that your Pleo can now interact with you for even longer periods of time, especially with the fun new features from the recent update Life OS 1.1.
The UGOBE Team
|Extra Batteries: the Details|
Each battery costs $49.
At this point, because of our very limited supply, each person is limited to buying one battery.
We can only ship to the US at this time.
Don't worry if you can't buy right now � batteries will once again be available on the PleoWorld store starting in around a month.

|Extra Batteries: the FAQs|
Q: Why limit orders to one per customer?
A: Unfortunately, we only have a limited supply of 500 batteries at the moment. We are working as hard as we can to expedite shipment of the next shipment of batteries from our suppliers.
Q: When will more batteries be available?
A: We are expecting the next shipment to arrive around a month from now. Check back on PleoWorld for further notice.
Q: Why are batteries only available in the US?
A: We are working with our international distributors on a broader, worldwide launch of batteries in the upcoming months. Due to regulatory constraints and shipping details, batteries are only available to ship in the US at the moment.
Q: Why is UGOBE releasing extra batteries now?
A: Because UGOBE has developed a proprietary battery for Pleo, the company has had very low supply of batteries to meet worldwide demand for Pleos since the launch. Our goal is to have a ready supply of extra batteries for all Pleos all over the world!
Q: How can I get an extra charger and adapter?
A: Please contact Customer Support for more information.
