Einleitung

Follow this guide to remove and replace the battery for the Moto E4 Plus. Getting to the battery is not very difficult, but the battery itself is held onto the frame with strong adhesive. You will need to use high concentration (over 90%) isopropyl alcohol in order to loosen the battery from the phone.

If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions.

For your safety, discharge your battery below 25% before disassembling your phone. This reduces the risk of a dangerous thermal event if the battery is accidentally damaged during the repair.

    • If your battery has two black tabs near the bottom corners, the battery is held in place by stretch-release adhesives. If that's the case, follow this guide instead to complete your battery replacement.

    • Before you begin prying, note that the battery is held in place by two adhesive strips.

    • Insert an opening pick into the top right edge of the battery.

    • Fill a plastic dropper or syringe with high concentration isopropyl alcohol and apply a few drops of alcohol along the right edge of the battery.

    • Tilt the edge up slightly for a minute to allow the isopropyl alcohol to soften the adhesive.

    • As you slice through the adhesive with the opening pick, try your best not to bend the battery pack. Soft shell lithium-ion batteries are highly susceptible to damage and can ignite when compromised.

    • Insert another opening pick into the right edge, near the first opening pick.

    • Slide the opening pick down along the right edge to loosen the right adhesive strip.

    • If the slicing feels difficult, apply a few more drops of isopropyl alcohol into the edge, wait a minute for it to seep in, and try again.

    • Insert an opening pick into the bottom left edge of the battery.

    • Push the opening pick until it is halfway under the battery.

    • Grasp the battery along the right corners and slowly lift the right edge upwards.

    • If the battery begins to bend significantly, stop and re-apply more isopropyl alcohol to the left adhesive strip.

    • Remove the battery.

    • Do not reuse the battery after it has been removed, as doing so is a potential safety hazard. Replace it with a new battery.

    • To install a replacement battery:

    • Remove the old adhesive from the phone frame.

    • Apply new adhesive in the same general area as the old adhesive.

    • Lay the battery lightly in place. Check that the battery connector is properly aligned with its motherboard socket.

    • Press the battery firmly into the phone for thirty seconds.

Abschluss

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

For optimal performance, calibrate your newly installed battery: Charge it to 100% and keep charging it for at least 2 more hours. Then use your device until it shuts off due to low battery. Finally, charge it uninterrupted to 100%.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.

You are a star. Spot on. I very much appreciate your contribution in breaking the monopoly of the bastards. They sold me the mobile without telling me the battery is fixed. I was about to send it for repair on their lab which could have cost me at least £200 if not more. £25 DHL . £45 just for looking into it . This is even before replacing the battery and the cost of labor. Take off my hat for you. Keep up the good work.

best regards
