Original N7. Does anyone know how to replace the battery? Appears to be a sealed unit...

 

 

Or do I bin it and buy a new one?

 

 

Thanks

not user replaceable and probably marginal if it is even cost effective to get it done in shop.

Have you tried a factory reset? The one we have here (original) had shocking battery life. Something was chewing the battery and a factory reset sorted it. Also the kids watch youtube videos and I think leaving the youtube app up and hitting power off keeps the youtube app active (but not playing) and this seemed to kill the battery as well.

Cheers, Matt.
