This particular battery isn't detachable but wired. Does anyone have experience successfully changing one of these out with a new one?

 

Thanks

Make and model of tablet might be helpful to those who have done it.

I've only ever had it while in it's current state, so I've never actually turned it on. I know it's a chinese made Proscan tablet.

If you have experience with soldering and working with wire/electronics in general, it should be pretty straight forward. There are many YouTube video guides to replacing wired batteries.

 

I would say if you can find a cheap battery and are feeling adventurous, go for it. If it doesn't work, then you haven't wasted that much money, but only some time.

Update:

 

Everything seemed to go perfect. I soldered the wires together making sure the connections were tight, solder was even. However when I tried to charge it or turn it on, it did nothing. I guess back to the drawing board.

 

I will try cutting the wires and resoldering to see if that is the reason.

My battery has failed on my tablet and I have ordered a new battery and will be trying the same thing. Is the battery charged? Maybe you should charge it prior to installing it?

Get a voltmeter and make sure that it has charge.
