Archos Battery Replacement Service
Do not leave your Archos charging on the dock all the time. The dock overcharges the battery and will kill your battery.
Please read this carefully if you are sending your Archos from outside Europe, otherwise your parcel may be delayed by customs or subject to customs duty.
1. You should attach exactly ONE customs declaration notice CN22 or Green Label (USPS form 2976 or similar) to international parcels stating the item is a 'Gift' and containing a 'MP3 player' or 'Computer parts' of value not exceeding £35 ($55 USD, €45 EUR). Usually your local post office will provide you with the correct label for your country. Only one customs label should be visible on your package, do not attach multiple labels as it can confuse automated sorting machines used at parcel depots.
2. The weight of a packed Archos is around 500gms or 1.2 pounds.
3. Please use a tracked or insured service if available at your end.

Can I drop the device to you in person?
I would really like to receive the device in post as it is easier to track. However you may drop the device in person in certain cases, but please contact me first and confirm the date/time so I can ensure someone is around (if not me) who can collect the device from you. You should still correctly package and address your device.
Can I collect my device from you in person once it is fixed?
No. The device will always be returned to you in the post.
I don't have a printer, can you post the form to me?
Please contact me with your request, name and postal address and I will send you a paper copy of the form.
