Image 1/3: To extract the motherboard, remove the seven Phillips Head screws fastening the motherboard to the back shell (screws are circled in red). Image 2/3: The battery lies on the board. Two wires (red and black) extends from a little PCB soldered on the battery onto the motherboard. (Refer the next image to view the battery.) Image 3/3: Important: Be careful not to miss the power button which is located on the lower right corner between the back shell and the motherboard.
  • When the cover (first image) is open, extract the motherboard (middle one in the third image) from the back shell (left one in the third image). The back shell is upside down.

Image 1/2: Other batteries that could fit are the HTC 3.7v 1650mAh Li-POL replacement Battery (dim. 5x50x60) at: http://www.amazon.com/35H00185-01M-1650mAh-Li-POL-Replacement-Battery/dp/B00MC1P154, and this battery: http://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/ultra-thin-flat-lipo-3-7v_1783274635.html?spm=a2700.7724857.29.147.ERomfl (dim. 5x50x60mm). Image 2/2: In fact, I have installed a Samsung Galaxy S4 battery on my Cybook Odyssey. It has almost the same dimensions and capacity. (But it may not fit all the models, as observed by a viewer of this guide. Nevertheless, it has worked in my Cybook Odyssey for two years.)
  • Here is the placement of the original Lipo 3.7V 1650mAh battery (dimensions about 5 x 46 x 60mm). You can see a similar battery with the same mAh and voltage at: http://www.cpkb.org/wiki/Samsung_EB-F1A2... (dimensions about 5.1 mm x 46.1 mm x 59.1 mm), which should fit in the Cybook.

  • The original battery is soldered on a protection circuit on a small external PCB from which two wires (red and black) go to the motherboard.

  • On this PCB, the red wire (+) is soldered near the (+) of the battery and the black wire (-) near the (-) of the battery.

  • You must then determine the (+) and the (-) of the new battery to correctly wire it to the PCB. You may need additional wires to solder the (+) and (-) of the new battery to the PCB (as the old battery was). The second picture shows the new battery, soldered with the small PCB, whose output is plugged (white plug).

  • Once the battery is soldered, before remounting, charge the battery with the USB receiver on the Cybook Odyssey. Verify that the Cybook Odyssey functions properly when the battery is charged and the USB cord is unplugged.

  • Proceed in the reverse order to remount the Cybook Odyssey.

Bonjour,

un tutoriel trés simple .j'ai remplacé la batterie par une batterie d'origine samsung S4 pour 8€90.

la récupération de la petite carte électronique sur l'ancienne batterie est très facile à déssouder.

merci

Denis

hi ! I just got an S4 Battery, but it seems bigger, and it says 2600 mAh ... is it still ok ? :/ thanks

legandfox - Ответить

I think it is ok. All batteries for galaxy S4 do not show the mAh (I do not remember what was written one the one I have put in the cybook). But you can measure the battery, the dimensions I mentioned in the instructions are about 5 x 46 x 60mm. For the capacity, 2600 mAh it is better than the initial 1600 mAh (but voltage must be the same, or very near 3,7V).

This tutorial should be avoided as possible, the Cybook Hardware is NOT MADE to charge such a battery, you risk fire/explosion problem by doing that..

Never mess with battery that are not made for a device

Godzil, you are right. Although I had no problem with the battery of galaxy S4 installed in my cybook for more than one year, I indeed recommand you to take a battery which has the same characteristics as the original battery.

The characteristic of the original battery is Lipo 1650mAh, 3.7V and dimensions are about 5x46x60mm.

(see http://www.bookeen.com/fr/supportfaq/sho...)

You can see such batteries for example here :

- http://www.cpkb.org/wiki/Samsung_EB-F1A2...

This one is 5.1 mm x 46.1 mm x 59.1 mm, so lightly more thick (0.1mm), it should fit well in the cybook.

- http://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/ul...

- http://www.amazon.com/35H00185-01M-1650m...

These two are 5x50x60mm but I think they should also fit well in the cybook.

I modified the tutorial to take into account your remarks. Thank you.
