Introduction

Once uncovered, you can see that the battery takes up the most real-estate inside of the device. The battery is very securely glued in so you will need to be forceful but also extremely careful when removing it.

Parts

No parts required.

  1. Starting at the Micro SD Card Slot and using the blue plastic opening tool, begin to maneuver the tool around the edges while applying light pressure to lift the panel upwards.

    • The battery is heavily glued down so you will need to apply force while also exercising caution to not damage the rest of the device.

    • Using the blue plastic opening tool, place the lip of the tool underneath the battery as seen in the photo.

    You do not need to remove the battery.

    • Once you have the blue plastic opening tool underneath the battery, work the tool around the edges of the battery similar to the technique used for the back panel.

    • When the battery seems loose enough, use the blue plastic opening tool to lift the battery from the device.

    • The battery has four wires connecting it to the device. Be careful not to damage these wires while removing the battery.

    The white wire is for temperature line. What about the green wire? I have generic battery almost same size ang xapacity but it had only 3 wires, red black ang white. Green is missing

    • The wires to the battery are soldered to the motherboard. You may also check the soldering techniques guide for additional tips on soldering.

    • If your device's wiring doesn't exactly match these photos, snap a picture or make a note of what color wire goes to which contact on the motherboard before you detach them. (A mis-wired battery could cause electrical shorts and ruin the tablet for good.)

    • Using a soldering iron, desolder the four wires from the motherboard.

    • Once the wires are free from the motherboard, your battery should be free to remove from your device.

Hello! Can anyone suggest a specific battery for K1 model ? Also the new battery comes with it's own wires as it is shown on Step5 ?

I just happened to be looking because my battery life is atrocious. And here's the forum where I found it. They have other links too if you want to try them out.

I just happened to be looking into this myself. I found a forum with many links that can be found by searching “Finding Replacement Battery in 2017?” . The thread is on XDA-developers.com. This is a link that works: on de.aliexpress.com

Good luck. As there is no convincing upgrade from the Shield K1, I might do this too. Other people noted that you need the little PCB attached to the original battery to solder it onto the bare replacement battery.
