Introdução

Follow this guide to replace the battery in a Nintendo Switch gaming console.

The battery is heavily glued in and will require adhesive remover to make replacement possible.

Before disassembling your device, discharge the battery below 25%. The battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured, but the chances of that happening are much lower if discharged.

If your battery is swollen, do not heat your Switch. Use a dropper, or syringe, to inject isopropyl alcohol (90+%) underneath the battery to weaken the adhesive. Swollen batteries can be dangerous, so wear eye protection and exercise due caution if attempting removal yourself. Take it to a professional if you’re not sure how to proceed.

  11. Remove the shield plate from the device. A thick pink thermal compound bridges the gap between the shield plate and the copper heat sink underneath. For best results, whenever the shield plate is removed, refer to our thermal paste guide to remove the old thermal compound and replace it with an appropriate, thick compound such as K5 Pro during reassembly.

    • The Nintendo Switch battery is glued in place. For best results, we recommend applying some high-concentration (90% or greater) isopropyl alcohol or our Adhesive Remover as shown in this step before attempting to remove the battery.

    • Apply a small amount of adhesive remover or isopropyl alcohol (approximately 1 ml) evenly along one edge of the battery cell.

    • Tilt the switch so the liquid solvent spreads underneath the battery.

    • Wait 2-3 minutes for the solvent to break down the adhesive underneath the battery before you proceed to the next step.

  13. Use a pry tool to lever the battery out. Don't use excessive force. A damaged lithium-ion battery can leak toxic chemicals and/or catch fire. If the battery doesn't lever out fairly easily, apply a little more solvent and try again.

    • Use strips of double-sided adhesive tape to secure the new battery.

You forgot the part where you need to remove, or at least disconnect the SD card reader, before removing the shield ;)

Good catch! should be fixed now, thanks!

Blake Klein -

Should I use new adhesive when I replace the battery? If so, what adhesive should I use?

Aaron Loyd - Responder

yes, at first I just replaced the battery but the battery would slide around. There is plastic all around the battery housing so it probably wouldn’t damage anything. I went back in and added a small piece of 3M double sided tape and have not had any issues.

John -

it would be worth noting that Nintendo has put some kind of thermal paste between the heat shield and the heatpipe/cooler on the chip. This thermal paste is much thicker than PC thermal paste and my switch was fine just pressing the 2 back together.
