It runs counter to common sense to own a battery-powered device that doesn’t allow you to replace the batteries quickly and easily—and that goes for laptops, tablets and phones.

But considering there’ll only be four teams left by the time your order’s delivered, I’m guessing it won’t apply to most of you.
