Introdução

This guide will teach users how to pry open the back cover, and remove screws in order to access the battery.

  1. Starting 15mm below the right page-turning button, insert the middle of the pry tool. Pry open the back of the device using the pry tool, or similar plastic opening tool. The flexi cable for the screen is 10mm wide and passes 10mm to 20mm below the right page turn and is very easy to tear the edge. Do not attempt to pry directly on the page turning buttons. This will damage the buttons.  By inserting it at 15mm this will reduce the chance of damaging the flexi cable. Look closely at the image of Kindle with the back removed, this will help to identify the location. If you are having trouble getting an initial gap to pry from, run the flat edge of the pry tool along the front-to-back plate seam until it slips into a gap.

    • Don't insert your tool too far, or you may damage some of the orange flex cables near the edges of the device.

    • When reinstalling the back cover, slide the bottom edge into place first, and then press up the sides and along the top until all the clips snap into place.

    Ah, I put it on in the wrong order, then figured out that starting at the bottom works best. I did the bottom, top and corners and then the sides, because I already had the top done.

  2. Unscrew the two silver 4 mm Phillips screws securing the battery connector.

  3. Lift battery out of housing starting at the end that was secured by the screws. Two silver washers beneath the battery connector may come loose—don't lose them. When reinstalling the battery, first slide the bottom edge into place and make sure the two retaining tabs are secure, before screwing down the connector.

    Remove the washers and place them with the screws, don’t leave them on the board, you’ll be removing it later and you don’t want to have them slide off.

I went to mpfproducts.com and ordered my new battery which came in today. I’ve changed out the battery and my Kindle 3 is now charging. YAHOO!!!

Where did you get the battery? I couldn’t find it on Amazon. Do you have a model number for the battery? Thanks.

The old Amazon link has been removed. There’s now a link at the top of this guide to an eBay vendor that stocks the battery. Good luck!

My Kindle won’t turn on, but the on/off switch glows. It has been working, somewhat. If I tried to turn it off, it would reboot, so I just let it go to sleep on its own. Does the battery need replacing?

My 10-year old kindle is now like-new. Bought my replacement battery (with tools included) at:

The toughest part was prying off the back. Be careful but forceful, those who are attempting this! Thank you for the guide and the part, iFixit!

Putting the back on was a bit tricky. The secret seems to be to do the ends and corners first. Then it snaps on easily because the forward and back buttons are somewhat more flexible than the ends and the corners.
