The battery replacement process involves flipping the laptop over, locating two switches, and pressing them in order to unlock the battery from its compartment. Once unlocked, the battery can be safely pulled out from the laptop. Replacing the battery may be necessary if your current battery is defective, or if the battery has become damaged and depletes too quickly. In most cases, a replacement battery can be acquired from the device's manufacturer.
