Use this guide to replace a worn-out or dead battery in your Galaxy A70.

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

You’ll need replacement adhesive to reattach components when reassembling the device.

  1. Insert a SIM card eject tool, a SIM eject bit, or a straightened paper clip into the hole on the SIM tray located at the left edge of the phone. Press firmly to eject the tray and remove it. Press firmly to eject the tray and remove it.

    • Heat an iOpener and use it to soften the adhesive beneath the rear glass. Apply the iOpener for at least two minutes. You might want to repeat this step several times during the rear glass removal.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the phone—the AMOLED display and internal battery are both susceptible to heat damage.

  3. Apply a suction cup to the back of the phone, as close as possible to the center of the right edge. Pull on the suction cup to create a gap between the rear glass and the frame.

  19. Follow these preparation steps before using adhesive remover.
    • Follow these preparation steps before using adhesive remover.

    • Apply a few drops of adhesive remover or high-concentration (90% or higher) isopropyl alcohol into the gap at the bottom edge of the battery.

    • Lift the bottom of your phone up to tilt it in the direction of the rear facing camera to let the adhesive remover spread out underneath the battery.

    • Let the adhesive remover penetrate the battery adhesive for at least 1 minute.

  20. Try your best not to deform the battery during this process. Soft-shell lithium-ion batteries can leak dangerous chemicals, catch fire, or even explode if damaged. Do not use excessive force or pry at the battery with metal tools. Insert a plastic card underneath the bottom edge of the battery. Carefully slide it underneath the battery to loosen the adhesive.

    • Before installing a new battery, remove any remaining adhesive from the phone, and clean the glued areas with isopropyl alcohol and a lint-free cloth.

Sonuç

If possible, turn on your device and test your repair before installing new adhesive and resealing.

Secure the new battery with pre-cut adhesive or double-sided adhesive tape. In order to position it correctly, apply the new adhesive into the device at the places where the old adhesive was located, not directly onto the battery. Press the new battery firmly into place.

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order. Apply new adhesive where necessary after cleaning the relevant areas with isopropyl alcohol (>90%).

For optimal performance, calibrate your newly installed battery: Charge it to 100% and keep charging it for at least 2 more hours. Then use your device until it shuts off due to low battery. Finally, charge it uninterrupted to 100%.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.
