    • Remove the six Philips #0 screws from the lower case.

    • These screws are all 5.6 mm long, but it's still a good idea to keep track of them and make sure they go back in their proper holes!

    • This photo shows the location of the ten clips that hold the lower case in place. Take note of the location of the clips, and refer back to this step if your lower case gets stuck during removal.

    • Four clips hold the upper half of the case in place and can be released by prying around them with a spudger.

    • The other six clips along the bottom edge can not be released by prying at them. Instead, they come free by sliding the whole case upward, as shown in step 5 below.

    • Pry up to release the two central clips along the upper edge of the case.

    • When installing your new battery, slide the bottom edge in first, and make sure it lays flat before you proceed to reinsert the screws or reconnect it.

Conclusion

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.

Is a battery type RYXXH compatible with the laptop Dell e5450? even though RYXXH is 11.1 V and the one that it had is 7 V.
