Introduction

After many times of attempting to recharge the battery with no success, it may be time for your Slate's battery to be replaced. This repair guide is the primary step for all future repairs on your HP Slate, and is a basic process to master. In this guide, you will be removing the following:

  1. Back Cover
  2. Battery

Prepare your required tools, a new battery for your tablet, and set aside about 10 to 15 minutes to delve into the inner workings of your HP Slate.

Begin your replacement by using a T3 or T4 Torx screwdriver. Remove the two 1.4mm x 3mm Torx Head screws at the top of the device.

    • Remove the two 1.4mm x 3mm Torx Head screws at the top of the device.

On the HP 10 Plus 2201 there are no head screws. I used the spudger to 'carefully' separate the case. There are little snaps on the inside of case that will separate with little pressure on spudger.

Using the flat end of the spudger, pry back the rear plastic cover. As you work your way around the edge, several "pop" noises will be made. These noises are caused by the plastic clips coming undone.
