Is there a website link where I can get a replacement battery for ASUS Q534 UXK ? Model year 2016.

Can this laptop be used without a battery?

Thomas, yes. I found that out by mistake when I didn’t fully connect/lock the new cable and had to go back in and reconnect it. Worked as usual on AC power.

mmedina - thanks for the step by step. Worked like a champ for me.

Dear IFixIt,

Thank you for this straightforward approach to changing the battery on my ASUS Laptop Model Q534UX BHI7T19. The first attempt was 100% successful!! I can say that opening the laptop base was a little scary, but your step-by-step details removed enough fear of me screwing something up that I went for it!! Having the right tools on hand went a long way to getting fast results and great outcome. I highly advise viewers to purchase a tool set to remove the tiny screws and a plastic pry tool set (the one I purchased from Amazon was only $18 and included both) to make this task almost effortless. Without your guidance, I never would have attempted this project. Thanks again!!

Do you have similar guidance for changing out the hard drives on the above ASUS??
