  1. Remember to power off the device before removing any parts. Position the laptop so that the bottom enclosure is facing upward. Use a Phillips #0 Screwdriver to remove the ten 1.9mm screws holding the bottom enclosure in place.

My 11S seems to be a bit different. It has Torx screws instead of phillips for the ten screws on the bottom.

There are two screws under the keyboard holding the top assembly to the bottom. In order to get the keyboard off I had to take out the screws underneath two of the feet on the bottom. Once you take off the keyboard and its ribbon cable, you can detach the three ribbon cables the author of this guide mentions without having to lift up the top assembly first.

I've also noticed there appear to be two different types of batteries for this laptop with the same part number. The first like mine and the one in this teardown have one tab on each of the shorter sides of the battery, while others seem to have two tabs on those same sides of the battery.

Does anyone have a reliable source for a replacement battery?

Brian Simpson - Réponse

Great help in replacing my battery. One thing is to be sure to get an original Lenovo battery. The cheap batteries will not work. The 11S has a built in check for third party batteries and the system will not charge the non Lenovo battery.

Mike Rowe is exactly correct, Lenovo Ideapads WILL NOT accept 3rd party batteries.
