This was helpful but my swiffer vacuum had a plastic chassis for the battery and I had to remove the circuit board as well to route the wires on my replacement battery as they were not is the same places as the factory battery.

One place you can get the battery pack as shown is here; https://sweeperbattery.com/. The latest model (easier to install) battery in a case (6 cell - 7.2 volt) is also available from amazon.

There is a 13 minute “How To” video on YouTube. Just search replacing swifter vacuum battery.

It is for the “newer version” of the vacuum , the one with the 6 cell NiCad battery.

Easy to follow and yes, the batteries (I have 2) came quickly from Sweeperbattery.com. Yay, I’m back in business- love the swifter vac. Just could not understand why swifter charges so much for the vacuum when the battery lasted barely 2 years!
