  1. Very good guide, managed to replace my Huawei P10 battery in about 30 minutes. Removing the old battery is the most difficult part by far, need to be firm yet gentle. Note that you didn’t actually mention to disconnect the battery cable from the device so I kept thinking I’d missed a step!

    Thank you for this guide, A++

    1. Where did you purchase the P10 battery? I need to replace my battery as it is getting puffy and the phone is opening from the right side.

  2. Thanks for this guide. I ordered a P10 battery as this guide gave me the confidence to replace my phone battery. After receiving the battery I replaced it successfully. I have seen other guides but this one was just to remove the old battery and replace it without any other boards removed. Only getting the battery out from the sticky tape was a problem.

    My battery was with air filled inside the pocket. Can it be used for other applications in electronics (Arduino etc.)

    1. AFAIK know, once a Li-Ion battery starts to inflate like that then it is degrading internally and is hazardous to use (risk of fire, etc.).
