No need to remove the battery. You don't even need to unplug it, but be sure if you don't unplug it that the battery doesn't have a charge left.

My tablet had a plastic frame around the sides and bottom under the back which was impossible to get around. I had to cut off the section covering the battery charging port in order to get the old one out and put the new one in. but it seems fine and charges well and I'm really pleased I could fix my son's tablet without spending a lot of money.

Very easy repair. Thanks very much!

Hey Danyf, Lithium Ion Batteries should never go fully dead. Your tablet is going to shut down before the battery goes fully dead. I would at-least unplug it to make sure you don't short out the battery, or fry the motherboard.

Hi All, just wanted ask a few questions regarding charging of Samsung galaxy 10.1 note.

I have recently changed a battery. In the start it was charging but now it's not? Do we have to reinstall drivers in android OS?
