    • We need the cable connecting the battery pouch to the mainboard.

    • Use a bit of heat to loosen the glue around the base of the connector that connects to the mainboard.

    • Once the glue around the base is soft, pry the glue away.

    • Most glues will melt at around 100-110F (37-43C). Be careful not to apply too much heat or the plastic connector will start to melt and deform.

    • Gently lift the small white tabs holding each wire in place and remove the wires one by one.

    • Save the connector head for step 16.

    • Do not use any metal tools to avoid unintentional damage to the battery.

    • Position your hair dryer in a way that directs heat towards the connector but away from the battery.

    • Do not apply heat to the battery pack! Ensure that the hot air is always directed away from the battery.

    • Pry away the glue at the base of the connector.

    • It is possible to remove the glue without applying heat but the risk of damage to the cables increases.

    • Use a spudger to lift the plastic tabs on the connector and remove the black wires.

    • Tape the three black wires together.

    • Make sure the ends of the red wires don't touch any of the other wires. This could damage the battery circuitry.

    • Remove the remaining wires and discard the connector.

    • Retrieve the connector head you salvaged from the ROG Ally and place it with the row of small white tabs facing up.

    • Attach the red wires first and glue them in place with an adhesive of your choice (I used this).

    • Attach the orange/green and blue wires, followed by the three black wires as shown in the picture. Glue them all in place.

    • Make sure you place the wires in the correct order otherwise your ROG Ally won't power on! Starting with the first red wire in the far right socket, proceed to insert each wire in the same order they extrude from the battery.

    • It's a good idea to run pilot holes through any screw pillars before proceeding further.

    • Make sure to grab the light blocker from the original back cover and place it in the new shell.

    • This piece of foam covers a light sensor on the ROG Ally mainboard. If the sensor is not covered, the system will not boot.

    • Transfer the paddles and triggers from the original cover over to the newly printed back plate.

    • Pass the battery cable through the opening in the new back plate.

    • Turn the connector head 180 degrees so the small white tabs are facing towards the mainboard.

    • Ensure the battery is correctly positioned and firmly press down on the base of the battery pack until you hear a click.

    • Check to ensure both case clips are engaged against the battery clips.

    • With the back plate loose, you need to carefully connect the battery connector and slide the metal bracket into its locked position.

    • This step is a bit fiddly but take your time and you'll get it to work.

    • You can replace five of the original six screws used to secure the backplate.

    • Use two of the screws from the original battery pack to further secure the new battery.

    • Plug in your ROG Ally to its power supply.

    • The ROG Ally will not power on after the battery has been disconnected without mains power.

    • Your ROG Ally should now be able to run off the new battery pack.

    • You can check the status of your new battery by opening PowerShell in Admin mode and typing: powercfg /batteryreport /output "C:\report.html". The report will be saved to your C: drive with the given filename.

    • OEM battery pack capacity.

    • Upgraded battery pack capacity.

    • Game on.

    • For the terminally curious, this is a shot of the BMS board.

    • If your ROG Ally doesn't power on, check:

    • Did you install the light blocker on your new back cover? Did you try taping the light sensor over with black tape?

    • Did you plug your Ally into mains using the original charging brick?

    • Double check to ensure your cable is properly seated on the mainboard. The margins are tight and it can pop out easily.

    • Double check that the pins on the connector head are inserted fully. You should be able to see the copper tabs through the white plastic.

    • Check your wiring. With the connector heads little white tabs facing up, you should have 3 red wires on the right and 3 black wires on the left. When connected to the mainboard, you should have 3 red wires on the left and 3 black wires on the right.

Ich würde gerne diese Mod machen, aber ich kann die Batterie nicht nach Deutschland bestellen. Gibt es da eine Möglichkeit?

Prezly - Responder

The batteries should be available from third party sellers on other platforms. Our EU store doesn't currently stock this battery.

I'm the creator of the original battery mod. It's so cool to see ifitit do their own spin off!

I'll need to add this to allymods.com
