Time perhaps for a mandatory 5 year warranty including battery replacement at advertised rate/costs given with the initial sales price?

I'd support that -- especially if it included mandatory software upgrade support for five years.

I'd also support a lower rate -- possibly 0% -- of VAT for spare parts and repairs (including service charges) than for new goods, to try to break the "it's bust, I'll replace it" attitude that seems to be becoming the norm.
