    • Carefully remove the back panel from the device.

    • Gently peel the back panel away from the adhesive, being mindful to keep the adhesive strip in good condition so that it can be used again.

    • Using tweezers, lift the orange bridge connector off.

    • Place the tweezers in between the battery and the end of the bridge and lift upwards.

    • Gently wedge the spudger under the battery starting from the left side, and slowly work the spudger around the edge to loosen the battery from the tape. Be careful not to rip the thin foil on the back of the battery.

    • Only use ESD safe tools when working on internal components of your device such as a spudger or opening tool.

    • It is not advised to use a metal spudger, as you could puncture the battery.

    • Lift the battery up using the spudger and use your fingers to slowly pull the battery off the adhesive.

    • Using the tweezers, gently lift the tape off of the Power bridge connector. If a new unit comes with a new piece of tape, remove entirely, if not remove and place one corner lightly face down on a clean surface to be used again.

    • Once free of the adhesive and connectors, remove the old battery from the device.

    • Attach the new battery by inserting the end of the orange power connector (the end not attached to the battery) clips into a little socket on the device (it's barely visible). You can tell when it clips in by the feel and sound. Make sure that when you put the new battery in, you first clip the connector in before you stick the tape down.

    • Be Aware: Your new battery might not be charged, so it may not power-on immediately! After replacing the battery, plug you Oasis in and let the battery charge to full capacity.
