    • Gently wedge the spudger under the battery starting from the left side, and slowly work the spudger around the edge to loosen the battery from the tape. Be careful not to rip the thin foil on the back of the battery.

    • Only use ESD safe tools when working on internal components of your device such as a spudger or opening tool.

    • It is not advised to use a metal spudger, as you could puncture the battery.

    • Once free of the adhesive and connectors, remove the old battery from the device.

    • Attach the new battery by inserting the end of the orange power connector (the end not attached to the battery) clips into a little socket on the device (it's barely visible). You can tell when it clips in by the feel and sound. Make sure that when you put the new battery in, you first clip the connector in before you stick the tape down.

    • Be Aware: Your new battery might not be charged, so it may not power-on immediately! After replacing the battery, plug your Oasis in and let the battery charge to full capacity.

Conclusion

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