[Android™ 4.4, KitKat] How do I install or remove the Battery Cover and Battery for my Samsung Galaxy S® 4?

Follow the steps to install your battery.

  • Charging a Battery

    You must fully charge the battery before using your device for the first time. A discharged battery can fully recharge in approximately four hours.

    Your device is powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery. The Travel Charger used to charge the battery is included with your device. Use only Samsung-approved batteries and chargers.

    Although you can use the device while the battery is charging, doing so will require additional charging time.


  • Install the Battery

    Make sure the battery is properly installed before switching on the device.

    1. Remove the back cover by inserting a fingernail or pointed object into the slot on the side of your device.
    2. Lift the cover up and away from the device.
    3. Insert the battery into the opening on the back of the device, making sure the contacts align (1). Gently press down to secure the battery (2).
    4. Replace the back cover.
    5. Press along the edge of the back cover until you have a secure seal and it clicks into place.
    6. Plug the USB connector into the charger/accessory jack on the bottom of your device.
    7. Plug the AC adapter into an electrical outlet. Fully charging a battery may take up to four hours.
