The screen turned white a few times in the summer and I thought maybe that was how it would cease to function. Now I think it will be the battery that goes first: it lost something like 25% of its charge in an hour.

Have you done a factory reset recently? You might have something stuck in the OS that's eating the battery. It's inconvenient, but it might do the trick. My Pebble smart watch was acting very weird, I was fearing a failing battery or possibly a failing watch, turns out that either an app or something in the OS was stuck and eating the battery: a factory reset last night and all seems well.

It's worth a shot, and a lot less expensive than a replacement (though I know you've been lusting after a new one).

My Kobo Aura H2O was losing charge fast. Wasn't my Kobo after all, but the SD card I was using. Pulled that out to just use the main memory, and I was back to weeks of use on a charge again.
