    Noticed last week that my battery was swelling making the back cover bulge. Went to eBay and ordered a replacement from a Winnipeg seller for $18 and free shipping. Considering that I ordered on Sunday and Monday was a holiday I received today (Thursday).

    Total time to swap out was 20 minutes. Very simple, 7 screws to take off the back cover, 1 screw to disconnect the battery and then gentle force with a plastic tool. Pop in the new battery and reassemble.

    Easy! No need to remove the motherboard as shown in the online teardown.
