Utiliza esta guía para reemplazar la batería en tu Samsung Galaxy S8.

Antes de desmontar tu teléfono, descarga la batería por debajo de 25% . Una batería cargada de ión de litio

puede prenderse fuego y/o explotar si se perfora accidentalmente

Si tu batería está hinchada, toma precauciones adecuadas. No calientes tu teléfono, si es necesario usa un gotero o jeringa para inyectar alcohol isopropílico (90%) alrededor de los bordes de la cubierta trasera para aflojar el adhesivo. Las baterías hinchadas pueden ser peligrosas, así que usa gafas protectoras y tome precaución, o llévala a un profesional si no estás seguro/a cómo proceder.

  1. Te recomendamos que limpies tu microondas antes de continuar, ya que cualquier suciedad desagradable en la parte inferior puede terminar pegado a el iOpener. Coloca el iOpener en el centro del microondas.
    • Te recomendamos que limpies tu microondas antes de continuar, ya que cualquier suciedad desagradable en la parte inferior puede terminar pegado a el iOpener.

    • Coloca el iOpener en el centro del microondas.

    • Para microondas giratorios: Asegúrate de que la placa gira libremente. Si el iOpener se queda atascado, puede sobrecalentarse y quemarse.

    which temperature must be used for heating? Thx

    I found you need to be very patient when using the iOpener. It's worth taking your time, giving the heat time to work on the glue. When I finally got the battery out, there were some strips of glue left behind that I just cleaned off with some isopropanol before installing the new battery.

    By the way, I had to run the iOpener for longer in my microwave for it to get hot enough. When it was too hot to touch, I figured it was hot enough for the batteries.

    Fredrik -

    I didn't find this to be as hard as I had built it up in my mind to be; HOWEVER, saying that I need to say years ago I was the local Nokia service center in my town. But many years ago right after they got rid of analog times. Yeah. A classic installer/repairer mistake when starting something they haven't fixed or installed before is picking up the instructions, flipping through them; maybe even reading a section that is new-then tossing the instructions over the shoulder. "I got this." This usually comes right before something major gets broke. And I can tell you when you try to do it yourself and then mess it up horribly then take it to the repair shop. Well we called that "I can do it myself" syndrome and charged extra to put back together what they brought in in the box. Now knowing all this - I can't stress this enough because I am stupid, stupid, stupid. COVER YOUR SCREEN IN CLEAR BOXING TAPE AND READ ALL THE INSTRUCTION BELOW THROUGH TO THE END BEFORE EVEN ATTEMPTING THIS FIX. Take my advise.

    I didn't have an iOpener, so I used a wheat type heat bag. If you do this though, make sure you put a layer of plastic between your Mac and the bag, or you'll get condensation in places you don't want it.

    Martin Gray - Contestar

    I started out using the iOpener but switched to my wife's hairdryer. A heat gun or hair dryer proved to be much more convenient and is a time saviour. You can heat more and the glue becomes more fluid make the next steps with the opening picks much easier

    Jan Van Puymbroeck - Contestar

    I know this is obvious, but backup your iPad with iTunes before you start. I'd also turn off your passcode if you have one.

    Laurie Higgins - Contestar

    Ther first time you heat up the iOpener for this repair when its room temperature I had to heat it up for more than 30 seconds. I remember I had to heat it up for around 45 seconds. However, after that when you need to reheat it again during the repair 30 seconds will be enough.

    Yousef Ghalib - Contestar

    Not everybody has a microwave. You need to state how long and at what temperature in a conventional oven.

    Esmond Pitt - Contestar

    My microwave just died, can i heat it with boiled water?

    Alex COLOMBANI - Contestar

    Taping as shown is impractical when using hair dryer method—tape simply comes off in the heat and gets in way of getting out the shards on the sides. If the thing wasn’t shattered, then taping unnecessary.

    B. A. Computer Services - Contestar

    I used the wheat bag in a sensor microwave heating up to 65-70 deg C (155 def F).

    ian cheong - Contestar

    Get yourself a cherry pit bean bag the size of your iPad. Heat it, put the iPad on it for 3 to 5 minutes or so, reheat the cherry pit bean bag, again put your iPad on it. Then heat the iOpener and start working. The cherry pit bean bag will have to be reheated several times, but it will soften the adhesive so you have less problems with the iOpener

    Tim Feyaerts - Contestar

    The “Galaxy S8 Replacement Battery” that you are selling with the kit is the wrong battery, the one that you are selling is a 3000mAh (which is the wrong amperage) as the OEM Samsung Galaxy S8 battery is “Model #: EB-BG892ABA / 4000mAh / Normal Voltage: 3.85V / Charge Voltage: 4.4V / A/S: 1588-3366 4000mAh 15.0Wh

    stevengenat - Contestar

    The heating can be done very effectively (and quickly) with 3d printer heated bed. Make sure the bed is clean. Set the temperature to 60c, (130f ) and put the ipad face down for +/- 10 minutes. Repeat as needed throughout the “gentle prying” stages.

    polleyphony - Contestar

    The iOpener did not work at all for me.

    I had to use a heat gun and bring the edges of the case up to ~200 degrees (used an infrared thermometer to measure) before the glue would weaken. This obviously superheated the metal frame, so I also had to wear gloves to handle the phone while prying the back off with the included picks.

    Mike Jeanette - Contestar

    Repair instructions worked like a charm. Had to be patient with the iOpener and getting the screen off. I tried repeatedly without success until shifting the suction cup a bit to the left side where perhaps the glue had loosened up a bit more.

    Kyle - Contestar

    The iOpener, in my opinion, is of no help. Many warnings to say “don’t warm it too much”, but the glue doesn’t melt if not warm enough. As a result, a complete waste of time and energy. In addition, too much liquid in it, so it doesn’t lay on the device on a sufficient surface. I took a hairdryer and it worked much much better.

    laurentvidu - Contestar

    I’ve tried for 2 days and cannot get this to work. I should have just taken it to my local iphone fixit shop. This is a frustrating purchase to say the least.

    jeffrey hill - Contestar

    Step 1 should be: now that you have looked over the tools of this repair kit, take your ipad to the nearest repair store and let them handle it. Sure you will waste about $65 by purchasing this kit and the cost of the repair but you will not tear your ipad up and you will have at least 2 days of your life that you can spend time with your family.

    jeffrey hill - Contestar

    Just replaced the battery in my iPad mini LTE. Followed the Ifix step by step instructions and they worked very well. The only thing i would change is step 42. You do not have to lift the LCD connector from the logic board. So don’t. It’s an unnecessary step. Other then that all was good. It took me about 2 1/2 hours from start to finish but I took my time and I recommend you take your time also. Very exciting too finish doing it and see it come to life afterwards. Tested everything and everything still works

    Anybody want to buy my iFix battery replacement tool kit only used once cheap?

    kaplang - Contestar

    i opener sucks! it’s incapable of heating factory glue enough to take a sealed phone apart and caused my backglass to shatter. i removed it the rest of the way with a soldering iron!

    Elijah Marvin - Contestar

    You should, at least, mention which wattage is used for the 30 seconds heating - 750 isn’t enough, obviously. Display shatterered . Thanks.

  2. Calienta el  iOpener durante treinta segundos.
    • Calienta el iOpener durante treinta segundos.

    • A lo largo del procedimiento de reparación, en cuanto el iOpener se enfríe, vuelve a calentarlo en el microondas treinta segundos más cada vez.

    • Ten cuidado de no sobrecalentar el iOpener durante la reparación. El sobrecalentamiento puede provocar que el iOpener se rompa.

    • Nunca toques el iOpener si parece estar hinchado.

    • Si el iOpener esta todavía demasiado caliente al tacto, sigue utilizándolo mientras esperas a que se enfríe un poco más antes de recalentar. Un iOpener adecuadamente climatizado debe mantenerse caliente durante un máximo de 10 minutos.

    May I know the temperate limit about heating iOpener? (maximum 150 degrees Celsius?) thx so much.

    yamayhuang - Contestar

    I had to heat mine up for more than 30 seconds. After 30 seconds on high it was only warm. It had to keep trying different times and checking it until it got hot. I think the initial time that I put it in for was over a minute.

    whale13 - Contestar

    DO NOT USE IN NON ROTATING MICROWAVE! It will pop a hole. I had it in for 45 seconds the first time. It wasn't very hot inside and I saw it started to leak on the paper towel I put under it. Just a fair bit of advice. I think I will just stick with the heat gun. Loud but useful.

    Mohideen Rifay - Contestar

    I heated mine up for 30 seconds, tested, then again for 30 seconds. It felt adequately hot. Leaving it on the left side, per the instruction, for a minute did not loosen the adhesive. I ended up pulling the suction cup hard enough to shadder the old screen. Moral of the story, I don't think it gets hot enough safely to have an affect.

    Travis Dixon - Contestar

    There is a clear problem here with the heating part using the iopener things....no details are given. Whoever is testing them needs to make it clear - What temperature does it need to be? And for which phone models, because they differ in what's needed. It's only £10-15 for a laser guided temp sensor unit, and the designers/repairers should have one of those already for doing these kinds of repairs. Explaining half a repair, is worse than not explaining at all :-(

    assortedrubbish - Contestar

    All phones/devices differ it’s unrealistic and unsafe to put a exact time/temperature needed to soften the adhesive. It’s really quite simple you warm the device evenly and in a controlled manner just enough to enable pry tools and picks to begin separating. Best tool in my opinion but again this is because I have experience is a hot plate and heat gun both of which are used at nearly the lowest settings and I can handle flat palming the plate for almost 10 seconds I leave the device to conduct heat until approx it’s about 110 at most 120 ish this will be plenty to soften all the adhesive if any problem areas I use heat gun while prying. Again you need go slowly and learn with a throw away phone

    Greg Latta -

    I used a hot water bottle, works well as it covers the whole screen and stays hot for longer.

    dave - Contestar

    If I may suggest include your microwave wattage so people can get an idea on time for there own

    Patrick Storey - Contestar

    I ended up using a hair dryer. That iOpener thing took forever.

    mark fitzgerald - Contestar

    30 seconds sure isn’t cutting it… 45 didn’t get the screen of my iPad air 2 to budge either… even after resting on the ipad for 4 minutes.

    60 seconds in the microwave, the iOpener burst.

    I’ll get a new one and try once more with heating it 45 seconds and repeat that for 30 minutes like others have said here. If that doesn’t work it’ll have to be the heat gun.

    K

    Karl Marble - Contestar

    I can’t recommend the microwave. If the the iOpener becomes too hot, it bursts. Better put the opener in cooking water. Dry it and use it. Instead of an iOpener you can use hot/cool packs as well.

    Bernhard Keim - Contestar

    Trust the directions! I forgot and left it in the Microwave too long and after 1 minute I had Mt Vesuvius - the iOpener burst and spewed the goodies out. The problem is, the Digitizer can be damaged by a hot air gun, so I had to tough out and remove the glue the hard way. I made it … with lots of patience! Tough lesson.

    Larry Bennett - Contestar

    I also used a hairdryer. I used it on the low setting and I cut a piece of carboard to protect the rest of the screen. The iFixit tool and method is vert tedious and very time consuming in comparison. With the hairdryer method you can literally have the display apart in a few minutes. Using your other hand nearby the area you are heating it should be very hot but not enough to burn your hand. You only have to heat metal part of case near glass edge. If you have a cellular model then you need to be very careful because the black antenna area is plastic. So less heat and work your way up in adding heat just enough to separate around the area but not so much you melt the plastic!

    Fixrights - Contestar

    iOpener was the worst part of the kit. Followed directions for :30 in microwave and took 4 trips to the microwave to loosen adhesive on left side of home button. I thought I was figuring it out and it was working well… even set a timer to wait 10 minutes between heating it up. Was on the right side and was on my 12th heat up when it exploded in the microwave. My only tip is that if you set it clear side up, as soon as you see any bubbles or boiling in the liquid, STOP! If you put a pot holder over the iOpener and press slightly to make good surface contact, that seemed to help. I finished heating with a “Corn Sack” that held heat better than the provided iOpener.

    Ivor Pocrnja - Contestar

    This was not easy. I finally got a pick under the glass of my moto x4 phone after placing my phone on my kitchen hot plate and letting the hot plate go up to about 160F—measuring with a candy thermometer. I was scared of it(either the phone or the iopener) getting too hot—I checked in with another online video and saw they used a 100C heat gun for 2 min on the left side: When I figured that was 212F I got braver with heating the phone.—My screen and display were already broken. I can’t say exactly how long the phone was on the hot plate at 150-160 because the hotplate annoyingly goes on and off not sustaining a stable temperatureprobably a few

  4. Abrir el dispositivo pondrá en riesgo tu sellado impermeable. Ten preparado adhesivo de repuesto antes de proceder o trata de evitar exposición a líquidos si vuelves a montar el dispositivo sin sustituir el adhesivo.
    • Abrir el dispositivo pondrá en riesgo tu sellado impermeable. Ten preparado adhesivo de repuesto antes de proceder o trata de evitar exposición a líquidos si vuelves a montar el dispositivo sin sustituir el adhesivo.

    • Aplica el iOpener a lo largo del borde curvado del S8 durante 2 minutos aproximadamente.

    • Necesitarás volver a calentar y aplicar el iOpener varias veces para alcanzar la temperatura suficiente. Consulta las instrucciones del iOpener para evitar sobrecalentamiento del dispositivo.

    • También se puede utilizar un secador de pelo, pistola de calor, o lámina caliente, pero ten cuidado de no sobre calentar el móvil -la pantalla OLED y la batería interna son susceptibles a daño por calor.

    • Mientras esperas que el adhesivo se ablande, lee el resto de instrucciones para saber dónde ejercer palanca.

    What type of adhesive should be used to seal? Or better said, what would you recommend.

    Ion Ion - Contestar

    I’d recommend precut adhesive designed for the rear cover. If that’s not available, thin, hi-bond double sided tape like 1 mm wide Tesa 61395 tape will work well.

    • Levanta de la ventosa e inserta un spudger Haldberd o púa de apertura debajo del cristal trasero.

    • Debido a la curva del cristal, deberás tirar hacia arriba con la ventosa e introducir la herramienta plástica de forma paralela al plano del teléfono.

    We can't seem to get anything between the edges even after heating the back panel. Any tips?

    Megan Kennington - Contestar

    Hi Megan, unfortunately the adhesive is super tough on this one. I’d recommend carefully continuing to apply heat, very gradually so that you don’t accidentally overheat the battery. Eventually you should be able to get a little gap with the suction handle.

    Adam O'Camb -

    I’ve been attempting to get the adhesive to loosen for four hours now. Exactly how much time is this supposed to take? The pictures makes it look like it should be easy. The adhesive still hasn’t budged and I’m beyond frustrated.

    Lori Lucas - Contestar

    Hi Lori, sorry to hear the adhesive is being extra stubborn! If reheating and reapplying the iOpener isn’t working, you can try heating the edge with a hairdryer or heat gun. That way you can get more heat onto the edge faster, but be very careful not to overheat the battery inside.

    Adam O'Camb -

    I used a stanley knife - very carefully, after trying for several hours to get the adhesive to loosen. I bought another back cover with adhesive for the assmbley, which is the best option in my opinion. Just be careful not the scratch the case of the phone, and be prepared for the back glass cover to break when removing it.

    James wright - Contestar

    The iOpener was a good idea but it just didn’t work. I used the heat gun on low and got it off in about 7 min. 30 min to clean off the excess adhesive. The directions stopped at removing the battery. What the !&&*??? is there a trick to plugging in the battery. Mentioning the need to seat the loudspeaker assembly and the NFC antenna - charging coil would have been helpful. Also, directions on seating the adhesive for the battery. Finally, directions on placing the seal would have been good. I ham handedly got it but needed to use the added adhesive that was sent with the kit. Overall took about an hour. I’m kinda psycho over making sure all the old adhesive was removed. Used the heat gun to reseat backing. worked great! Need to revamp the directions with items above but the kit had everything (except heat gum) and things I didn’t need.(likely to cover other installs.) Worried about breaking glass back but no problem. Thanks for the kit.

    Richard Werbelow - Contestar

    The manufacturers really want to make this impossible, huh… I’ve gone 3 years without ever cracking this phone and end up cracking the corner of the back trying to prise it open. Probably should’ve gotten a heat gun too. This is super tight.

    Benjamin Chaim - Contestar

    “20 minutes to an hour” is definitely not accurate

    Benjamin Chaim - Contestar

    Suction cup just pulls off of the phone, this is pretty useless. Boutta ask for my money back for the kit. I have never had so much trouble with a computer, phones are insanely user-repair-proofed these days.

    Benjamin Chaim - Contestar

    I am currently working on this. I have heated the phone to just barely to hot to hold. No matter how many times I've done this and pulled up with a suction cup I cannot get an edge to lift.

    Being that this is my second phone repair does anyone have advice on this? I've watched several YouTube videos and it looks so easy.

    DAVID LAWRENCE - Contestar

    I suggest you try to lift on the middle of an edge using the thinnest spudger you have. also as the edge is curved remember to insert it so to follow the curve. Hopes it helps

    Cajuteq -

    Also I'm using a hair dryer.

    DAVID LAWRENCE - Contestar

    Our issue was that a small gap would open when using the iOpener, but not large enough to get spudger or opening picks in there (also tried hair dryer but same result). Luckily as a guitar player I had some very thin nylon picks that we were able to get in there, which opened up a large enough gap to get the spudger and opening picks in. From there, we were able to heat the other sides and guide the spudger around the entire edge to get the back glass off.

    First we used a Dunlop nylon .38 mm guitar pick, then a .60 mm pick, and that allowed us to get the spudger in.

    For reassembly, if the fingerprint scanner is removed from the back cover: it’s much easier to place the fingerprint scanner in the small compartment on the back of the phone, connect it and then finally put the replacement back cover on. The adhesive on the inside of the back cover will get connect to the fingerprint scanner and hold it tightly.

    Brian Hoffmann - Contestar

    The NFC antenna and coil assembly might get stick to the back cover due to adhesive spreads while trying to pry the back cover to open the phone. Take a look inside to ensure the assebly has not got sticked. If so, try using a credit card like plastic to get it peeled of from back cover without breaking the assembly always paying attention to the fingerprint sensor as well.

    • Para reinstalar la tapa trasera:

    • Primero utiliza unas pinzas para retirar los restos de adhesivo de la tapa y del cuerpo del teléfono

    • Después, limpia las áreas de adhesión con alcohol isopropílico (de 90% o más) y un paño anti-pelusa. Frota sólo en una dirección, no adelante y atrás. Esto ayudará a preparar la superficie para el nuevo adhesivo.

    • Asegúrate de encender el teléfono y verificar tu reparación antes de instalar el nuevo adhesivo y volver a sellar el teléfono.

    • El adhesivo de repuesto viene pre-cortado para coincidir con la tapa trasera, si no está disponible se puede utilizar cinta de doble cara como Tesa 61395. Ten en cuenta que esto dejará espacios que hacen el dispositivo vulnerable a daño por líquidos.

    • Después de instalar la tapa trasera, aplica presión fuerte y constante al dispositivo durante varios minutos para ayudar al adhesivo a que se una bien. Por ejemplo, dejarlo bajo un montón de libros pesados

    • Si lo deseas, puedes reinstalar la cubierta sin sustituir el adhesivo. Retira cualquier gran acumulación de adhesivo que pueda impedir que la cubierta esté nivelada. Después de la instalación, calienta la tapa y aplica presión para asegurarla. No resistirá el agua, pero el adhesivo normalmente es lo suficientemente fuerte como para aguantar

    Thankyou so much for the Isopropyl Alcohol trick!! This have really helped me :) Learn something new every day.

    • Deberás hacer palanca contra la caja directamente por encima de la placa hija y los cables de antena. Haz palanca cuidadosamente para evitar dañar cualquiera de estos componentes.

    • Podrías necesitar volver a calentar y aplicar el iOpener repetidamente para ablandar aun más el adhesivo. El adhesivo es resistente y podría llevar varios intentos para que la púa pueda estar debajo de la batería.

    • Intenta como puedas de no deformar la batería durante el proceso. Las baterías de ión de litio de caparazón blando pueden perder sustancias químicas peligrosas, prenderse fuego o hasta explotar si está dañada. No uses fuerza excesiva o hagas palanca en la batería con herramientas de metal.

    Very frustrating process. Not a kit problem, but the folks at Samsung must be a sadistic bunch to use so much adhesive to glue in a battery, No success removing yet after numerous reheatings. Cracked back cover, so proceeding with additional caution due to batter location. Cracked board below the battery would be a disaster.

    Bruce Ward - Contestar

    Success in removing the battery after about 7 reheatings. To reassemble, I had to remove the fingerprint sensor in order to fasten the circuit back to the board. Wasn’t a big deal. Reused the cracked back cover since I always use a protective cover and waterproofing isn’t an issue for me.

    Overall, I’m satisfied with the kit and the instructions. I just must have been too aggressive when dislodging the adhesive from the back cover.

    Bruce Ward - Contestar

    If you have removed the front glass already, the process is a lot simpler. You can take a hair dryer and use it close to the back of the battery for just a few seconds, then use a combination of dental floss and the opening pick to pry the battery out.

    Damien - Contestar

    I could not get a good angle with the pick to pry out the battery. I used the angled tweezers instead, although you need to be very careful not to puncture the battery. I inserted one tong of the tweezers along the bottom edge. I aligned the tweezer tip so it was flat against the front of the phone, parallel to the battery. Then I twisted the tweezers so the tip of the tong slipped under the battery. And I pulled the tweezers away from the front, continuing to twist the tip to keep it under the battery as I pulled the battery away from the adhesive. That worked quite well.

    • Para instalar una nueva batería y el adhesivo, Sigue está guía

    • Remueve cualquier resto de adhesivo del teléfono y limpia las áreas pegadas con alcohol isopropílico y un paño anti-pelusa.

    • Sujeta la batería nueva con el adhesivo pre-cortado o cinta adhesiva de doble lado. Para posicionarla, aplica el adhesivo nuevo en el teléfono, no en la batería. El adhesivo debería ir alrededor del perímetro del compartimiento de la batería, pero no en el recorte rectangular en el centro (que en realidad es la parte trasera de la pantalla).

    • Presiona la batería firmemente en su lugar durante 5-10 segundos.

Conclusión

Luego de volver a aplicar el adhesivo, sigue estas instrucciones en orden inverso para volver a ensamblar tu dispositivo.

Luego de completar esta guía, calibra tu batería nueva.

Who are these geniuses that engineer a cell phone that requires complicated surgery in order to replace a faulty or dead battery? Really? And this POS costs the yuppified zombies how much?

Joseph Kennedy - Contestar

Mate, check a term “planned obsolescence” on wikipedia. Even if 1/50 of people won't replace a battery but buy a new Samsung, it is a 1 extra cellphone sold. It was designed on purpose hard to remove.

Slavomir -

to make phone sistant and if you take how much thinks are in new phones of course they are complicated its same as new cars sorry but new technology is more sophisticated

denisek2110 -

Mine was stolen, it would be gone forever if they were able to pull out battery right away. But since I was calling and sending “play alert" commands through find my phone server, thieves were tired of it and left it on a sidewalk wrapped in paper and a t-shirt.

What type of adhesive do you use to stick the phone back

Good Survey - Contestar

Hi! In our store you’ll find a rear cover adhesive strip for the S8. In the event that that’s sold out, we recommend using Tesa Tape—the 2 mm width should work well for this repair.

Adam O'Camb -

How complicated compared to my old S4 … what a joke

mofla39 - Contestar

Will the phone still be water resistant after this ?

Thanks

aperret - Contestar

This was wild. I hope I don’t have to use this knowledge for awhile. Why doesn’t Samsung just tell you to send it back and they will fix it for the price of a new battery? If I pay $800-$1,000 for a phone that I can’t change the battery on after a year or two, I’m going to be !#^&@@ at Samsung. Should we all complain to them about making this service available or having them advertise the lack of battery changing before a customer buys it?

mtrman94 - Contestar

that’s the issue. Like Apple, Samsung want you to buy another new phone every year instead of replace the battery.

ANTHONY CAETON - Contestar

Same issue, i sent my S8 back to Samsung 15days ago and still waiting for my f****** phone.

Pietro Ferracini - Contestar

This process did NOT work for me. I purchased the kit and spare battery thinking it would be as easy as the video shows. However, after multiple attempts and several different hot pads later, the cover did not budge AT ALL. Now, I’m stuck with a kit that didn’t work and a battery (not even a Samsung replacement battery like the site stated), and nothing to show for it. Not being able to replace any battery in any electrical device on your own is just a poor engineering letdown, especially in such an expensive phone.

Michael Pakosta - Contestar

There are versions of phones with waterproof battery compartments and certainly they could maintain their ability to control waterproofing the product of they still redesigned the access to the back cover via a more robust removable rear cover with gasket.

But with rear main cover more secure with screws possibly?

I'm not going to spell out how to tell them to make their phones, but maybe they might consider how users want to have the ability to change the battery themselves, and maintain the control of the device without sending it to a repair site for some time period.

Think of all the professional customers, besides all the soccer moms, students and retirees who they might dismiss right away.

Military & Government Officials, maybe even Senior Company Executives and tech companies that use these for everything from email and texting to secure encrypted NSA stuff.

Make it so they can be field repaired with a fresh battery seems like a no brainer?

That's my 2 cents!

Michael McGarghan - Contestar

if battery deteriorates to a very low level, say, just last 1 hour after recharge, and it’s under warranty, can we send it back to Samsung for free repair?

chasun - Contestar

Just remember, if you replace someone else battery and the phone explodes, you are liable. It’s advisable, if you’re not a bonded repair person, it’s not recommended that you change this battery. If you are doing it for yourself then take all precautions and insure the battery the correct replacement and you follow all removal and install direction specifically. If you don’t the results could void your Warranty or worse explode and injure you.

Just ordered the battery, but curious if anyone has any feedback in terms of reliability and if they get the same battery life out of a single charge versus the original.

Jacob Fulbright - Contestar

Hello All,

I went through the comments and two of them caught my attention.

1. Will the phone still be water resistant after this ?

Thanks

aperret - 01/01/2018

I could not see a reply to this question.

2. Just ordered the battery, but curious if anyone has any feedback in terms of reliability and if they get the same battery life out of a single charge versus the original.

Jacob Fulbright - April 9

Is anyone able to provide some feedback?

Thank you

Thanks for the questions!

1. In theory the phone could still be water resistant, but I definitely wouldn’t expect that unless it was repaired by a professional—even then I’d still be pretty careful. In my experience it’s really easy to compromise ingress protections during a repair, so I generally just assume that my repairs are no longer up to the same water resistance standards as they were before.

2. We test our batteries to make sure they’re up to OE standards. If you aren’t getting close to the same life as you were with your original battery, contact our support team.

Good luck with your repair!

Replaced battery and a severely cracked back panel for a total of about $70 (750 NOK).

Less hassle and much cheaper than getting a new phone.

The glue holding down the battery is easily softened with some isopropyl alcohol.

A little warning: The NFC Antenna and Charging Coil Assembly has a rubbery feel to it. This substance does NOT like isopropyl alcohol and will disintegrate if you accidentally get some on there. It shouldn’t really matter much, but better keep the alcohol away from it.
