Google Pixel Battery Replacement: DIY or Hire It Out?

Google Pixel battery not charging? We compared Google Pixel battery replacement options and costs so you can decide whether to fix it yourself or pay a battery replacement service.

NOTE: Google will replace a faulty battery for free if your Pixel is still within its standard 12-month warranty period.

Should you replace your own Google Pixel battery?

All Google Pixel models have integrated batteries. They do not have quick access battery compartments, so replacing your own Google Pixel battery can be moderately difficult – especially for novices with little or no experience with phone disassembly.

If you decide to replace the battery yourself, you’ll generally need to:

  • Discharge the battery to below 25% to prevent fires and explosions
  • Use a pick and suction cup to separate the display from the frame (you might need to heat the glass to soften the adhesive)
  • Disconnect various cables and screws
  • Swap the batteries and reassemble your Pixel

If you’re comfortable with the repair, you can replace your Pixel battery in about an hour. Find Pixel battery replacement guides on iFixit or YouTube.

WARNING: DIY battery replacement can void your warranty and insurance policy. It also risks additional damage that could cost more than pro repair shops. Avoid poorly constructed aftermarket batteries that could leak acid, catch fire or explode.
