The Razer Blade 14 is a fantastic laptop that came out a couple of years ago. It costs a lot to send the device back to Razer for a battery replacement, but you can always buy a third-party battery and replace it at home. Below, you'll find a step-by-step guide on how to do exactly that. When you're looking for a third-party battery, you'll want to find one that provides screwdrivers because Razer uses some unique screw holes.

Before you begin, remember to shut down your laptop completely and remove the charger.

Step 1

Remove the 10 screws with the appropriate screwdriver provided in the kit. You may have to try a couple because the size of the grooves may be different depending on your region. This will allow you to lift the cover to expose the battery and other circuitry.

Step 2

Remove the 7 screws with the appropriate screwdriver provided in the kit. This will be different than the one you used to remove the cover. One of the screws is hidden behind a wire so you'll have to push the wire aside.

To do this, you have to lift up the tiny black clip first and then pull out the blue tab only on one side. Use tweezers if you have them because this is a delicate process.

Put back the bottom cover and replace all the screws you removed when removing the cover. Your laptop is ready to use now so you can plug it into the charger and turn it on. The manufacturer recommends that you charge your battery for 12 hours the first time.

Hopefully, this guide helped you. This was my first time replacing the Razer Blade 14's battery and I found it to be quite easy.

  • Nice. Can batteries in most gaming laptops be replaced like this?
  • Sometimes. Sometimes they apply this adhesive so it's very hard to pull off. Luckily, Razer just uses screws.
