OnePlus Battery Replacement: DIY or Hire It Out?
OnePlus battery not charging? We compared OnePlus battery replacement options and costs so you can decide whether to fix it yourself or pay a pro.
NOTE: OnePlus will replace a defective battery for free if your phone is still within the original 12-month warranty period.
Should you replace your own OnePlus battery?
All OnePlus models have built-in batteries, which means they don’t have quick access battery compartments. The battery is easier to replace on some models than others.
For example, you only need to pry the rear cover off and remove a few screws to access OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 batteries. However, OnePlus 3 through 7 models require you to remove the front screen – if you don’t know what you’re doing, you can risk costly damage plus void any warranties or insurance policies.
If you decide to replace the battery yourself, in general you’ll need to:
- Discharge the battery to below 25% to prevent fires and explosions
- Either pry the rear cover off, remove screws or heat and remove the front screen (or some combination thereof) to access the internal components
- Disconnect various cables and remove screws
- Replace the old battery and reassemble your OnePlus
