Lift the bottom edge of the battery up slightly.

Do not hinge the battery beyond 45 degrees, or you risk damaging the inter-cell connectors.

Use tweezers or your fingers to peel the single clear plastic covering off of the entire bottom side of the battery.

At this point, the battery's four adhesive strips are exposed. Be careful handling the battery and try not to touch the strips.

Align the battery such that it falls in place with the screw post near the Smart Connector.

Be sure not to trap the Smart Connector cable underneath the battery.

Gently lay the battery down into its recess.

Press the battery firmly into place.
