Hi,

could someone confirm, that it is really that easy to replace the battery. Or even better, could someone post some pictures how to do it?

The other thing I am interessted in, is to remove the usb-protection, as it seams to be really annoying to use...


Thanks,

km

You can access it by removing the screws on the back cover (including a few torx screws) and then prising the chassis open.

Interesting, wonder if we will see some higher capacity batteries as I will be willing to open it up and change the standard one

Thanks! Do you know if it is possible to take out the usb cover, because it looks like it will break soon?

You can try to take it out with a tiny screwdriver or something
