    Hi guys,

    I bought an Teclast f5 almost 2 years ago and had very few issues with it since but lately, I have noticed that the battery is expanding dangerously (+1.2cm). The touchpad and the space bar are being lifted by the deformation and I fear that the battery will leak if it continues.

    I have sent multiples messages to teclast to know if I can remove the battery safely and continue to use it without a battery (I don’t move the laptop) or buying another battery. Did any of you have a similar experience and what have you done?

    Thank you for reading me,

    Bye

    Hi,

    You`re not alone 🙂

    I have same problem. Battery expanded pushing keyboard up so laptop can`t be closed.

    I removed battery and it`s working on power adapter just fine. One problem with that solution – without weight in bottom half it tilts and swings without hands on the keyboard.

    I suspect battery puffed cause mine (like yours) is constantly connected to the power adapter.

    There are plenty batteries on ali (ca.50$ with shippping), but also there are batteries that are supposedly 4500mAh (oryg.3500mAh).

    This larger batteries dont have mounts to screw it inside. I didnt find any opinions about them (are they really working longer?).

    I guess I`ll try it anyway.

    You should definitely remove your battery (if you didn`t do this already). Puffed batteries can be unpredictable.

     

    Cheers

    There is no special trick. Remove all screws (including ssd cover), remember to remove sd card!

    All the screws are same, except two near hinges (they are little longer, don`t mix them).

    when you remove all screws use something flat to pry open back cover(I used old credit card) – start from the side of power/volume buttons.

    It should open, especially with swollen battery helping from inside 🙂

    Mine is already working with new battery. Use exactly same looking battery, those bigger (I mentioned them earlier) don`t fit.

    Good Luck
