Your Oppo Find X5 Lite discharges much too fast? You notice a significant drop in performance?

In this detailed photo tutorial, we will show you step by step how you can easily replace your battery yourself.

Once you open your Oppo its warranty will expire.

If your battery is inflated, keep in mind that the gas inside the battery is flammable and can escape. If you do not feel confident enough, have it replaced at a repair shop.

To prevent the case and screen from scratches, make sure your workspace is clean and level.

We wish you good luck with your repair!

17 steps
  1. Switching off your Oppo Find X5 Lite

    Use our checklist to test the basic functions of your Oppo Find X5 Lite before repairing. This way you can check afterwards if your repair was successful.

    1. Press and hold the power button for a few seconds.
    2. Tap on Power off in the displayed menu.
  2. Heating up the back cover

    Used tools
    Heat gun

    The edge of the back cover is heavily glued. Use a heat gun or an ordinary hair dryer to heat it sufficiently.

    1. Heat the edge of the back cover by running the hot air device evenly over it.
    Used tools
  3. Lifting up the back cover

    As an alternative to the suction cup, we can recommend the iSclack, which requires less force to lift up the back cover.

    The iFlex can be inserted particularly well between the back cover and the screen unit due to its sharp edges.

    1. Attach a suction cup to the lower edge of the back cover and pull it upwards to create a narrow gap.
    2. At the same time, insert a flat tool into the gap between the back cover and the screen unit.
    Used tools
  4. Removing the back cover

    Find X5 Lite - Removing the back cover 04
    Used tools
    Heat gun

    In order to prevent the glue of the back cover from bonding again, we recommend sliding flat plastic picks under the back cover at regular intervals.

    To avoid damaging the camera module, you should not insert your tool too far. At this point, the hard plastic pick is therefore particularly suitable.

    1. Drive your tool completely around the edge of the back cover to loosen it piece by piece.
    2. Put the detached back cover aside.

    If something doesn't work properly, double-check that everything is installed and connected correctly.

    1. Connect your Oppo to the mains in order to see if the replacement battery is charging.
  17. Attaching a new adhesive frame (optional)

    If the adhesive frame is still in good condition, you do not need to install a new one. However, if it has defects or no longer sticks properly, we recommend that you use a new adhesive frame.In our example, we used thin, double-sided tape.
