Worked great. Was able to order a replacement battery for my daughter’s two year old Chromebook. $39.99 and relatively easy to swap out.

You did such a great job writing this documentation. I would not consider myself to be good at taking apart things and putting them back together again but your amazing pictures showing each step of the process gave me the confidence to try it myself! It was perfect and exactly what I needed to get this switched out!
