The Playdate earns a 6 out of 10 on our repairability scale (10 is the easiest to repair):

A big flathead screwdriver and an opening pick will get you inside.

You can twirl away all the internal (Pozidriv) screws with a basic Phillips driver.

The battery is immediately accessible and only lightly adhered in place.

The headphone jack is completely modular, and the crank design is simple and serviceable.

You can swap the display, but only if you replace the entire front case.

All of the controls are aggregated onto a single FPC—easy to swap, but a bit wasteful if only one thing breaks.

The USB-C port is soldered to the main board.
