Introduction

If you are having power issues with this device, replacing the battery may be the solution. This guide will show you how to do so.

However, you should check through the troubleshooting page before proceeding, in case a simpler fix resolves the problem.

For your safety, discharge your battery below 25% before disassembling your device. This reduces the risk of a dangerous thermal event if the battery is accidentally damaged during the repair. If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions.
