What you need

  1. Samsung Galaxy Note10+ 5G Battery Replacement, Heat the rear cover: step 1, image 1 of 1
    • Completely power off your phone before you begin disassembly.

    • Prepare an iOpener and apply it to the left edge of the rear cover for one minute.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the phone—the display and internal battery are both susceptible to heat damage.

  2. Samsung Galaxy Note10+ 5G Battery Replacement, Insert an opening pick: step 2, image 1 of 3 Samsung Galaxy Note10+ 5G Battery Replacement, Insert an opening pick: step 2, image 2 of 3 Samsung Galaxy Note10+ 5G Battery Replacement, Insert an opening pick: step 2, image 3 of 3
    • Apply a suction cup to the heated edge of the rear cover, as close to the edge as possible.

    • If your rear cover is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may allow the suction cup to adhere. Alternatively, very strong tape may be used instead of the suction cup. If all else fails, you can superglue the suction cup to the broken cover.

    • Pull up on the suction cup with strong, steady force to create a gap between the rear cover and the frame.

    • Depending on the age of your phone, this may be difficult. If you are having trouble, apply more heat to the edge and try again.

    • Insert the point of an opening pick into the gap.

  3. Samsung Galaxy Note10+ 5G Battery Replacement, Begin to slice the adhesive: step 3, image 1 of 3 Samsung Galaxy Note10+ 5G Battery Replacement, Begin to slice the adhesive: step 3, image 2 of 3 Samsung Galaxy Note10+ 5G Battery Replacement, Begin to slice the adhesive: step 3, image 3 of 3
    • Slide the opening pick along the left edge towards the bottom left corner to slice the adhesive.

    • Don't insert the opening pick more than halfway into the phone or you risk damaging internal components.

    • Leave the pick inserted in the bottom left corner to prevent the adhesive from re-sealing.

  4.

    • Repeat the previous heating and cutting procedure for the remaining three sides of the phone.

    • Leave an opening pick on each side as you continue to the next to prevent the adhesive from resealing.

    • The rear cover will begin to separate from the phone as you finish all sides of the phone.

    • Apply a suction cup to the back of the battery.

    • Pull up on the suction cup with strong, steady force to begin to separate the battery from the frame.

    • If this is difficult, apply a few more drops of isopropyl alcohol underneath the battery, let it sit for two minutes, and try again.

    • Insert the point of an opening pick into the gap created between the battery and frame.

    • Don't insert the opening pick more than halfway or you risk damaging the fingerprint sensor underneath.
