简介

Use this guide to replace a worn out battery in your Huawei P20 Pro.

Opening the Huawei P20 Pro will damage the waterproof sealing on the device. If you do not replace the adhesive seals, your phone will function normally, but will lose its water-protection.

Before disassembling your phone, discharge the battery below 25%. If your battery is swollen, do not heat your phone. Swollen batteries can be very dangerous, so wear eye protection and exercise due caution, or take it to a professional if you're not sure how to proceed.

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

  1. Switch off your phone.
    • Switch off your phone.

    • Use an iOpener to loosen 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 back cover removal.

    • The adhesive of the Huawei P20 Pro is of moderate strength, however a hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used if you aren't able to open the device with the iOpener. Be careful not to overheat the phone—the OLED display and internal battery are both susceptible to heat damage.

  2. If the phone's rear glass is cracked, a suction cup may not stick very well. Try lifting it with strong tape, or superglue the suction cup in place and allow it to cure so you can proceed. Press a suction cup onto the rear glass close to the bottom edge of the phone. Lift the bottom edge with the suction cup, opening a slight gap between the rear glass and the frame.

    • Press a suction cup onto the rear glass close to the bottom edge of the phone.

    • Lift the bottom edge with the suction cup, opening a slight gap between the rear glass and the frame.

    • Insert an opening pick in the gap and slide it to the bottom right corner. Leave it there to prevent the adhesive from resealing.

    if the back cover is not broken, i’d suggest NOT to use an opening pick as if the phone was not heated enough, you may crack the glass on the edges. better use the iPlastix, it is thinner and less stressful for the glass.

    It is better to put a peak on the side because the side opens first than the bottom of the phone.

    I have to agree that is is much easier to start opening from the side. Do read the rest of the guide though, to make sure you won’t hit something when opening it from the side.

    • 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 phone at the places where the old adhesive was located, not directly onto the battery. Press the new battery firmly into place for 5-10 seconds.

结论

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

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

For optimal performance, calibrate your newly installed battery: Charge it to 100%, and keep charging it for at least two more hours. Then, use it 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.

Quando sostituisci la batteria perdi tutti i dati ?

ale - 回复

Hi Ale,

when replacing the battery you won’t lose any data as long as you don’t damage any relevant components for data saving.

Dato che purtroppo non parlo italiano, ho creato questa risposta con l'aiuto di un traduttore. — Quando si sostituisce la batteria non si perderanno dati finché non si danneggiano componenti rilevanti per il salvataggio dei dati.

Dominik Schnabelrauch -

I just watched 2 YouTube guides on doing this and one used an adhesive ring strip while the other used glue from a bottle. Is one solution any more solid than the other?

Also, I don’t have an iOpener so would either isopropyl alcohol or a hair dryer be a good alternative for softening the back cover/battery adhesive?

Finally, I’ve seen and heard people using all sorts of things to pry out phone batteries ~ plastic pry sticks, metal pry tools, and even flat-edge screwdrivers. Which tool(s) are the safest and/or most effective?

TinkerJosh - 回复

Hi TinkerJosh, isopropyl alcohol (>97%) is a valid option for softening adhesive. A hairdryer will also achieve a good result for heating the adhesive. I would advise against using metal tools (such as metal spudgers or flat screwdrivers). To pry out the battery you are better off with opening picks and a plastic card. Either way, try not to puncture or deform the battery to avoid damaging it. Successful repairing

Great instruction, Thanks. Is there a part # For the new adhesive gasket, and where can it be bought?

derek5 - 回复

You can actually replace the battery just fine stopping at Step 14. You dont need to take the bottom interconnect baord out at all. Just hold the interconnect ribbon up out of the way, and pry the battery out (carefully) as you would any other phone. The new one can then be refitted following the same method. I would also argue that this task doesnt deserve its “Moderate” dificulty rating… Its the abck cover and 9 screws. That’s all.

Hi.

I had my battery changed due to bloating and everything works except I get no service unless the power cable is plugged in.

Any ideas where they should be looking as it’s had No Fault Found from two labs now?

Cheers
