Unfortunately for repair-minded folks like ourselves, the battery contains none of those nifty adhesive pull tabs found in the larger iPad Pro (and in every iPhone since the 5s). So, removing it is a sticky affair.
Maybe next time Apple? Pretty please?
What the battery does contain is a rating of 3.82 V, 27.91 Wh, and 7,306 mAh, amounting to a 10-hour battery life claim.
As expected, that's quite a bit less than the 38.8 Wh capacity of the larger iPad Pro—but fractionally better than the iPad Air 2's 27.62 Wh. Still, all three models have roughly the same estimated battery life.
We're about to leave the case at that, but we try another poke at the Smart connector, hoping for an easier extraction than last time. No such luck.
