can you recommend a battery model #? I want to be certain I buy the correct one.

The first step needs to be amended. There are 10 back cover screws including the central one, not 9. Additionally, the battery cable removes outward from the battery, not upward.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the feedback! I’ll make the corrections you suggested.

I'm told that you should replace the connector cable that connects the battery to the motherboard whenever you replace the battery. However that cable doesn't come with the kit. How do I get that part?
