The battery provides internal energy for the phone. This guide will show you how to remove a defective battery without damaging other components. Before beginning please make sure you have all the necessary tools listed below which are required to complete this replacement effectively. We also advise you to be extra cautious while using the suction handle and the spudger when opening the phone up.

Before disassembling your phone, discharge the battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured.

  1. Place the suction handle onto the top of the phone's display.  Make sure to have a strong connection.
    • Place the suction handle onto the top of the phone's display. Make sure to have a strong connection.

    • Insert the edge of the blue opening tool between the phone's crease. Pull up with the suction cup and pry the display off.

    • Do not be too forceful; after the phone is pulled apart there are still inner connections that need to be taken care of.

    Hi, these managed to get lost during the repair. Does anyone know where I can obtain replacements?

    • Remove the magnesium midframe by pulling out all eleven 3.5 mm screws holding the piece down, using a JIS #000 screwdriver.

    • Use the plastic opening tool to pry open the frame from the side.

    • The battery is held down by a large orange ribbon. Simply disconnect the metal tab that attatches the ribbon to the phone.

    • Pry apart and remove the battery from the device using a spudger.

    • The battery will be glued to the bottom. Removing it will not damage the device, but it will be difficult.

    • To install a new battery:

      • Remove any remaining adhesive from the phone, and clean the glued areas with isopropyl alcohol and a lint-free cloth.

      • Secure the new battery with pre-cut adhesive or double-sided adhesive tape. In order to position it correctly, apply the new adhesive into the phone, not directly onto the battery.

      • Press the battery firmly into place for 5-10 seconds.

    NEVER use a pointed metal tool as shown in the picture in this guide. You can damage the battery, which can cause fire and further damage the device. It is also very easy to damage the mainboard.

Just completed this last night. They weren't kidding when they all say the battery is no fun.

I managed to get it, but doesn't mean the old one wasn't bent like crazy when I was done. I was planning on keeping it as a backup since it wasn't bad, but I don't think I would risk it at this rate. Getting a thin stiff plastic to push through the adhesive along with the spudger helped.

There are a lot of components and boards along the edge of the battery. It's hard to pry without touching them. I saw a guide recommend taking the guts out to remove the battery.

One thing I would recommend while you're in there is to replace the thermal paste. Mine wasn't too bad after a year, but I'm sure it won't make a solid and effective cover on the processor to the heat pipe.
