Battery replacement ipad2.

My ipad2 battery is starting to discharge quicker than normal. Has anyone ever changed a battery in one of these before? I have done my ipod classic with no problems and was wondering if the ipad would be with the same tools and technique.

A guide can be found using the link below. You can also do it through Apple which is about £80 plus P&P.

Its very rare for them to fail.
I've only had a few customers with failed batteries and they haven't gone ahead with the replacement when I told them the price.

The iPad 2 is the worst to open as there are ribbon cables for the power, volume and hall sensors running underneath the digitizer. Normally when you open an ipad it is due to it being smashed and you can pick away the glass around the delicate area's.

To take the glass digitizer off intact is a mare and the cables and wifi\3g antenna can easily be ripped.

You will need to get the apple metal separator tool and a set of plastic pry tools (look like chop sticks which taper to a point). This will make your life easier.

Working on an ipad is like brain surgery as there is always power going to all of the parts. You have to take it to bits before you can disconnect the battery packs underneith the lcd!

there is a pic of an ipad 2 in bits on my website that I have taken if you can use it for reference

CSR doing it yourself is no easy job, it's very precise stuff.

I've done loads of iPhone screens and lock/home buttons etc but wouldn't want to take apart an iPad. Different kettle of fish altogether.

Thanks for the advice guys, i think i will give it to apple its only £80 and cheaper than £350 for a new one. I have been monitoring the battery usage and it is discharging quicker than normal.
