I broke the adhesive strip tab on the battery
As i was trying to replace my charge port i broke the adhesive tab on the battery and can't figure out how to remove the battery without the tab. Can someone help? It is urgent!
This is an old question but I thought it would be a good idea to remind people that if the adhesive tabs are broken, the safest thing to do is to remove the logic board before attempting to pry the battery out (heat or no heat). Remove the port & speaker too if you want lots of room to work from. That way you will minimize the deformation to the battery.
The iPhone 5C has tiny surface mount components near the edge of the logic board near the battery connector. If you pry the battery from there, you can easily knock some components off the board. They are minuscule and once separated from the board, are indistinguishable from dust...seriously!

You have to do it the hard way.
Unless you remove the speakers and somehow pick out the remaining strip and keep pulling.
Hey Colin Sweet,
Just use som heat and try to pry the battery up. Do this very carfully.
Before you nuclear, try the tabs again.
Look at the bottom of the battery towards the charge port for the white adhesive. If you can grab it with tweezers, you can SLOWLY pull on it and still get it out.
If you have to go nuclear, watch out for the power flex at the top right under the battery.
just as a point of interest, most of the time i get iphone's with charge port problems, its just dirt stuck in the port that stops the charger going in properly.
try plugging the charger in, if it doesn't sit flush against the bottom of the phone, its probably just fluff inside.
try pulling it out , CAREFULLY with tweezers or something else that may fit in the charge port
The same thing happened to me today with my first-gen SE. I was able to get the battery out by putting some 99% isopropyl alcohol under the battery to weaken the adhesive, then pulling a piece of dental floss under it to cut through the adhesive. I also used a plastic pick to pry the battery a little bit.
