In the following steps, you'll pull out the two adhesive tabs underneath the battery. This special stretch-release adhesive loses its tack when stretched, allowing you to lift out the battery with ease.

If the strips break, don't panic! They don't always work as intended. Here are a few tips to increase your odds of success:

Don't press down on the battery. Hold the phone firmly by its sides.

Keep the strips flat and unwrinkled as you pull.

Pull very slowly, giving the strip time to stretch and separate. It takes around 15-30 seconds of stretching to remove each strip.

Pull at a low angle so the strip doesn't snag along the bottom edge of the battery.
