Removing battery from Lenovo Twist S230u laptop?

2014-07-03, 2:47 AM

Hello. I am sending my S230u laptop by air to a Lenovo service station to get its HDD replaced. One of their requirements is to remove the battery from the laptop since it is considered a 'hazardous' material.

 

Is it actually possible to remove the battery off an S230u? I've been searching online and it appears you can only disable the battery. Any help would be really appreciated.

 

Thank you for your time.

Solved! See the solution

It appears I don't need to remove the battery after all.

the battery is not a Customer replaceable unit. End customer can't remove it by themselves. Don't worry send it in as it is.
