    This is my first tuto i've got a lot of photos if you want more :)
    Sorry for my poor english

    First of all materiel:
    Philips , small pliers, 2 credits cards.

    1) Open the backside plastic like in this video on youtube:


    2) Then you are here:
    -remove the battery as you can see on photo.
    -move the screws in red on the photo.
    -Take the HP one screw no wires, just 2 pins who works with pressure on the back.
    -Credit card on both side LEVER UP.
    -then the motherboard is dissassembly.

    6) It's done !

    7) The important thing for me is to change the battery and see if battery is on other tablets and the answer is:

    in front you've got C11Pn5H (just 2 on amazon) but on the back you've got C11P1304 (battery used in memopad and on a lot of tablets --> more choice and less price.

    Nice! I was wondering if the battery would come out without extreme damage... And thanks for using my video =P Nice to know we can further extend the life of this thing if need be.

    New cables and Battery would be a great refresh for this tablet. My battery capacity is already down by 8% in a year. Glad to see that the battery is replaceable. Very nice write up. Thanks for documenting your surgery.

    Hi battery changing people, maybe you know what can be wrong with the battery dropping voltage in this post, and is it safe to try changing/swapping batteries between tablets in that particular case? (and also do any tablet parts like clock etc. get reset after battery is disconnected? I need software like Win8.1 and applications to keep functioning normally after swapping)

    Anyone actually done this?

    In looking at my tablet, it looks like the battery could be pried out without disassembling the rest of the boards, etc. Has anyone tried that?

    Haven't bought a replacement battery yet, still working up the courage.

    I've just done it with my tablet. You don't need to disassemble the rest of the boards, though there's a much greater risk of damaging something if you leave them in place. I removed just the little black board with the speaker on it and took my time taking the battery out, and I still managed to damage one of the small gold "pins" that contact what looks like a small shield on the back of tablet.Tablet still seems to work fine though.

    Prying the battery out really is a pain in the arse because of the sticky tape they used to fasten it to the tablet. ASUS really had no intention of letting anyone replace it, LOL. Make sure you discharge the battery as much as possible before you start. Luckily my own had little charge left. I managed to bend it slightly during removal and it started to get pretty warm as a result.

    When I put the new battery in, I didn't use sticky tape to stick it back into the tablet. Instead I used a small square of double-sided sticky tape, with one side left covered, and put this in the center of the inside of the tablet's removable back. Once the tablet is re-assembled, this provides enough compression force to keep the battery in place.

    Bravo, Mr. Steele!

    A few questions:

    1) Which battery did you source, and (if not a factory unit) does it work properly?

    2) Did you have to do anything to make the tablet recognize/ adapt to the new battery- maybe run some utility to reset firmware for the battery's condition?
