We have reached the battery. This Surface is packing a 42.2 Wh, 7.6 V, lithium ion time bomb.
All batteries die, making battery replacement a necessary repair for any device. Before we take a stab at disarming the bomb, we read all the warnings that we plan to ignore, including the very clear instruction that we are not to replace this battery. Well isn't that just swell.
At first pry, we notice lots of resistance, leaving us with the feeling there's a
n off-chancehigh likelihood we'll destroy this battery during removal—which makes us as nervous as the wicked witch around a bucket of water (that she has to pry open).
Time to get our pry on *insert high-brow joke about prions*
