Video: Nokia N8 Battery Removal and Refitting

@MickyFin from Nokia Users and Nokia DNA gives us a video demo of how to remove the battery out of the N8. It IS sort of user replaceable (unlike other phones with non-removable batteries) but it’s just no where near as easy as having a removable battery cover. The N8 uses a standard BL-4D battery as seen in the Nokia N97 mini so it’ll be easy to find replacements.

Fortunately the Nokia N8’s battery life is great. If you’re after extending it without having to go through the  cumbersome route – just get yourself a portable charger. E.G. Proporta has a very reliable range of pocketable chargers that could charge your N8 over and over even whilst in use.

But it is useful to know that should your battery lose its charge life, you don’t necessarily have to bring your N8 to a care point (possible 24 months from purchase date)

NOTE: Possible Warranty Void

    The official Nokia Service Manual for the N8 recommends using a Torx + Size 4 ‘screwdriver’, (not a 5 as stated in the video) and also states that the two screws should only be unscrewed seven full turns and NOT removed completely.

    Just thought it worth mentioning!

    We need this answered conclusively (which no one has yet done): Does replacing the battery void your warranty. Yes or no!? Someone, somewhere, in authority, please answer!
