Inleiding

Laptop batteries can become faulty in as little as 2 years. Having a working battery is an essential piece to an efficient laptop, as the main function of the laptop is to be able to work away from home. Laptops with short battery lives can be extremely tedious as you constantly need to be plugging them in to an outlet.

For your safety, discharge your battery below 25% before disassembling your device. This reduces the risk of a dangerous thermal event if the battery is accidentally damaged during the repair. If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions.

Hullo. In the pic on step -1, near the top left screw, the back cover is cracking up. Whenever, I open the Display panel, the back panel at this point shows tendency to open. The screw is obviously is out of its threading. Is this damage, physical or due to battery swelling. My battery life seems alright. After full charge, it stays for more than 30h with intermittent use. Can you reply to svnarasimhan5@gmail.com
