Use this guide to replace the battery on your LG G6.

  1. We recommend that you clean your microwave before proceeding, as any nasty gunk on the bottom may end up stuck to the iOpener.
    • We recommend that you clean your microwave before proceeding, as any nasty gunk on the bottom may end up stuck to the iOpener.

    • Place the iOpener in the center of the microwave.

      • For carousel microwaves: Make sure the plate spins freely. If your iOpener gets stuck, it may overheat and burn.

  2. Heat the iOpener for thirty seconds.
    • Heat the iOpener for thirty seconds.

    • Throughout the repair procedure, as the iOpener cools, reheat it in the microwave for an additional thirty seconds at a time.

    • Be careful not to overheat the iOpener during the repair. Overheating may cause the iOpener to burst.

    • Never touch the iOpener if it appears swollen.

    • If the iOpener is still too hot in the middle to touch, continue using it while waiting for it to cool down some more before reheating. A properly heated iOpener should stay warm for up to 10 minutes.

    • Remove the iOpener from the microwave, holding it by one of the two flat ends to avoid the hot center.

    • The iOpener will be very hot, so be careful when handling it. Use an oven mitt if necessary.

    • Apply the heated iOpener to the edge of the phone for about 2 minutes.

    • When the back panel is heated, apply the suction cup close to a corner of the phone. Lift up and insert a halberd spudger or opening pick under the rear glass.

    • Slide the blade of the Halberd spudger along the edge of the phone to separate the adhesive.

    • Follow around the edge of the phone, and use an opening pick or other tool (such as a plastic card) to keep already opened portions from re-adhering.

    • Using a Philips 000 bit, remove 11 screws from the highlighted locations.

    • With the screws removed, remove the lower frame components, followed by the upper mid-frame. Both components can be removed with a little prying.

    • Begin battery removal by very gently prying off the power ribbon with a plastic card or a nylon spudger.

    • Firmly pull the blue tab. Be careful not to bend the battery as you pull it away from the adhesive.

    • Do not use a knife as you may pierce the battery.


To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

I found this article while searching for info on battery replacement. I’m considering purchasing this phone. I’m wondering if opening the back would wreck the waterproof rating.

Yes, opening the back does remove the water sealant that is factory installed. You might be able to find the replacement “glue” that gives the phone the water proof rating but I’m not sure I would really trust it. Probably easier to just be really careful near liquids after the battery replacement. I’m looking at battery replacement in the next few months and that is my plan anyway, just keep the phone away from liquids like I’ve always tried to do with every phone I’ve owned.

Will this require new adhesive to put the back back on?

I also need to know.

I replaced the thermal paste, battery, USB port, and sim card tray. The Sim tray broke internally upon removal. Hopefully no pins were bent in the process. Everything else went together pretty well. The rear adhesive may be reusable but I would not recommend it. The precut adhesive I used I am not fond of and may have to redo the seal with some double-sided tape.
