Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

         I have recently purchased a new battery for an Acer Aspire V3-  731-4473 laptop.  At this point, I am needing an online link to a multimedia tutorial on how to remove the old battery and install the new one.  

        Any submitted online multimedia tutorial links addressing this will be greatly appreciated.

        Thank you

        George

Hi George,

I couldn't find a video devoted solely to removing and installing the battery, but here's a 7-minute YouTube video on upgrading the RAM and HDD:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2rIdD13ivMA

To do those upgrades, he removes the battery, which is at the 1:55 mark in the video. After doing the upgrades, he installs the battery, which is at the 5:21 mark in the video. Regards, Joe

slide the lock to the left and the battery simply lifts out.. to reinsert, align the tabs on the outside edge and with the lock in the unlocked position click in and move the slide to the locked position

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

           Technically, everyone answered my question.   Removing the defective laptop battery and replacing it with a new one was much easier than I originally thought it would be.  That said, I am very pleased to say I have the new laptop battery installed and it is holding the charge for 2 1/2 hours which is so much better than the original 10 minutes with the defective or bad battery.  

            Thanks again :-)
