    • Use a plastic opening tool to lift the side of the battery that is closest to the long edge of the computer.

    • As you are pulling the battery away from the computer, unplug it from the side furthest from the long edge of the computer.

    • There may be a lot of resistence when unplugging the battery, so it is helpful to wiggle the male side of the plug back and forth as you remove it.
