Follow this guide to replace the battery in a Nintendo Switch gaming console.

The battery is heavily glued in and will require adhesive remover to make replacement possible.

Before disassembling your device, discharge the battery below 25%. The battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured, but the chances of that happening are much lower if discharged.

If your battery is swollen, do not heat your Switch. Use a dropper, or syringe, to inject isopropyl alcohol (90+%) underneath the battery to weaken the adhesive. Swollen batteries can be dangerous, so wear eye protection and exercise due caution if attempting removal yourself. Take it to a professional if you’re not sure how to proceed.

You forgot the part where you need to remove, or at least disconnect the SD card reader, before removing the shield ;)

Should I use new adhesive when I replace the battery? If so, what adhesive should I use?
