I like my HN6 but the battery was causing problems and needed to be replaced.

I bought the new battery (LiPo 585460) from here: Polymer Lithium Ion Battery (LiPo) 3.7V 2000mAh

The photos have all the notes needed.





















So $20 and a bit of tinkering and it's as good as new.

As the new battery has a plug on it, why didn't you simply unplug the old and plug in the new?

Because the HEMA circuit board didn't have a socket...........


As is plain to see in the photos.

Malcolm

Not sure why you even asked that question, as those very easy to follow photos clearly show the original new battery wires soldered in place, with no plug at all.

As the TV adverts say...........you should have gone to Specsavers.......

I love this stuff. Thank you. I have replaced cracked screens on both an IPhone and a Samsung tablet following YouTube. A lot of gear gets thrown out when a fix is possible.

excellent article Stephen...well done. Just out of interest is that replacement the same spec as the OEM battery....or an upgrade as well?

My battery life has never been flash from new. So what sort of battery life have you got now?

Thanks

Hullo Graeme, how are you going?

Yes, the battery is an upgrade as well.

The original was, I believe, a 1500mAh battery.

That one I put in is slightly bigger in dimension and is a 2000mAh battery.

I haven't tested its life from full to flat yet, and probably won't. I just wanted to prevent the striped screen of death from appearing again (and I like to tinker).
