Video: Nokia N8 battery replacement, easier and quicker than I thought.

Over a year ago, we saw some disassembly instructions for the N8, showing amongst some useful things, how to replace the battery in the N8.

I never thought this was something I would do myself for fear of messing something up. But a video by Steve Litchfield (who as well as being the Patron of Xenon is also a flag bearer for removable batteries) shows how it’s actually pretty quick to replace the battery in the N8.

I wouldn’t exactly say its something I’d do just to get more juice (I’d get a portable charger for that) but changing battery perhaps when it starts showing some age and not holding its charge.

In the video it takes around 49 seconds – and that’s without rushing.

  1. Undo torq screws
  2. Remove cap
  3. Flip open clip (as seen in video)
  4. Remove battery
  5. Replace with standard BL-4D
  6. Flip back clip
  7. Replace cap
  8. Turn back screws.

Have you ever replaced your N8’s battery? Or taken it apart at all?
