Lay the Kindle face down on a soft cloth to protect its screen.
  • Lay the Kindle face down on a soft cloth to protect its screen.

  • Wedge the plastic opening tool in the small opening between the grey plastic and the metal casing.

  • Move the plastic opening tool across the opening while pressing down to separate the grey plastic from the metal casing.

  • Slide the gray plastic top piece away from the Kindle's metal casing.

  • Once the gray plastic top piece is detached from the metal back cover, remove it.

I had a heck of time using the spudger. I have found that grabbing the corners and using my thumbs to push the plastic away worked like a champ.

  • The volume control button rests in a slot on the side of the Kindle. When the metal casing is removed, the volume control button may fall out. When reassembling, place the volume control button back into its slot.

I followed this guide, without changes, and was able to successfully swap a battery on a Kindle DX. The DX is essentially a Kindle 2 with a larger screen.

Thanks, easy and went well!

Maybe you need a thinner spudger, TH?

An ebay-acquired battery fit perfectly, but failed to reboot the kindle or accept a charge.

the battery looks idential to the Kindale battery to an old analog voltmeter.

I conformed that the kindle terminals were receiving battery voltage.

The replacement guide was just fine, Back to the original battery, which is well past its best-by date!

Any advice on where to buy a battery online (shipping to Portugal)?

From what I read not all batteies are good, and besides from ebay etc, I don’t know any good shop for this kind of product.

Thank you
