Nokia N9 Battery Replacement DIY

This is the Best video by far on disassembling and putting the N9 together again.

All credits must go to Le55ons.

The tools that you will need is a T5 screwdriver, plenty of light and a steady hand.

Also, a small plastic knife with thin edges will come in handy.

Used this video to replace the BV-5JW, 1450mAh, 3.8V, 5.5Wh battery for my N9.

One small tip, the battery connector must be inserted the “right way down”, as the connectors to the N9 motherboard is only present on one side of the the battery’s connector.

If you don’t get this right, the N9 will not power on.

Small detail but big difference.

Very pleased to find that the new replacement battery showed a 97% charge right out of the packaging!!! However, the phone should still be charged for the recommended 12 hours before use for the phone to calibrate itself to the new battery. The 97% reading is more than likely an overestimation.

Another note is that if the battery is faulty, the N9 will consistently display the “There is something wrong with your charger…” error. Just replace the faulty battery and the error message will disappear.

So, don’t throw away your N9 if the battery is struggling or needs replacing. It can be done!

Spares can still be found from Amazon UK at 14.99 pounds:

Thank you, Le55ons!!!

We have become jollaN9story

nokiavswindowsphone has become jollan9story

Hope against hope, Nokia has failed to resurface, and in its’ present form under Elop, nothing more than an OEM manufacturer for Windows Phone in everything but name.

As such, we have decided to change the name of our blog to reflect the current realities.

Nokia, as an independent entity, is no more…

However, all the original posts from nokiavswindowsphone.wordpress.com will remain to tell the story of Jolla and Nokia N9.

Please be advised and update your bookmarks accordingly. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Jolla Phone Spikes On Google Search Trends



It has been a while since the pre-release campaign of a phone has generated so much buzz and excitement. It looks like the actual launch of Jolla Phone at the later part of the year will eclipse even that of the original Meego Harmattan N9.

Why, Jolla Phone is even being labeled as “Deviant Linux Smartphone“!!! Sounds really cool and catchy!!!

All this attention and “love”…can only be a good thing… πŸ˜‰


Check out the following cool links while you’re here with us:

Ex-Nokia team creates two-part ‘Jolla’ mobile phone

A team of ex-Nokia engineers and designers has unveiled the Jolla, a totally new smartphone with a totally new operating system. Even if this snazzy new device crashes and burns like other dark-horse mobile devices in the past, it sure will look good while it does so.

The phone’s most unique aspect has to be its split nature: The front has the usual smartphone guts and a 4.5-inch HD screen. But attach an “other half” to the back and your phone gets a new look, new profile, or even new features. Each rear piece can be independently configured
β€” have one for work and one for personal use, for instance, or buy one that adds exclusive apps or even something like wireless charging…”

Jolla, Sailfish, and the future of MeeGo

You may remember in my last article I explained the undying love I feel for my Nokia N9, which has since been replaced by an admittedly awesome, yet much less unique Android phone.

This change was prompted by the N9s MeeGo operating system becoming more and more dated, and me not wanting to be left behind.

So with the N9 receiving no more support from Nokia, and the team behind it having all moved on from the Finnish mobile giant, it’s pretty safe to say MeeGo is well and truly dead, right?


Meet Jolla…”


Everyone say “Hi” πŸ™‚
