Description: This photo shows how it looks now in my A2000 after the original and leaking NiCD battery has been replaced with a lithium battery to avoid more serious motherboard damage.

No way!

Never use a silicon diode! They drop the battery voltage 0.7V, sufficient to prevent the RTCs to work.

Use germanium instead, i.e., 1n60 or others (again: never a silicon one, nor a zener, obviously). They drop batt. voltage only 0.3V.

unfortunately, canned air cannot remove fine dust, it would be best to try some brush  (dont forget to take care of static electricity)

Yeah, they sell pressured air in the can... It's great for dusting off your motherboard and components.


umm, it's not just random air, it's had water vapour removed  :-)

@Herewegoagain:

Read the guide LithBatt before you start replacing the battery. It mentions the things you should think about when doing this modification and how to do this modification properly. I read it before modifying my A2000 pictured above and I strongly recommend it.

Good luck replacing your battery!

You can even see the detail of every spec of that dust!

Seriously, I'd like to try this project on my A3000.  I don't see any signs of the battery dying, but why wait until you have a problem?
