Introdução

This guide will teach someone how to take out the battery in the Polar M400 and replace it with a working one. A damaged battery could be due to lack of charge or submersion in water more than 30 meters. It could also be due to battery age and various malfunctions. Over time, excessive and wear can lead to battery damage. The Polar M400 has an internal, rechargeable battery. You can charge the battery over 300 times or two years before a notable decrease in its capacity. The number of charge cycles also varies depending on use and operating conditions. Once the battery is replaced, follow local waste disposal regulations and do not dispose of this product as unsorted municipal waste.

It may be easier to push the pins out in one direction. Unfortunately, I do not recall which direction was easier…

Hello, thanks for the details !

The most tricky part: find the right spare part. I can’t find a replacement battery that could fit the original dimensions with reasonnable capacity.

Do you have any lead?
