    • Very carefully, remove the batteries with the same blue plastic iFixit opening tool used in the first tutorial. Focus your efforts on the combed hinge to the left of the batteries.

    • The batteries should all be connected to one another and come out of the device as a single unit.

    • Be careful not to rip any of the black plastic covering the batteries. Exposed battery parts can lead to explosions. If the case is ripped, re-wrap them, or properly dispose of them. Do not use them.
