Changing the battery on a cybook odyssey needs to open the device, to unsolder the old battery and to solder the new battery.

You need a soldering iron, solder and a new battery. Galaxy S4 battery is a fine alternative battery for the cybook odyssey, but many other batteries should also fit (see below in the guide).

Hope it will help you to unmount your cybook without detroying it (as we began to, when we wanted to open it by pulling the back protection, before we found that the cybook has a upper cover that was only firmly clipped... ;-)

  • To open the cybook, you need to unclip the cover around the screen you can see on the picture with the help of a thin knife.

Image 1/3: To extract the motherboard, you need to remove the 7 Phillips screws that tighten the motherboard on the back shell (screw positions are rounded by red circles in the 1st and 2nd pictures, and can also be seen on the back shell on the left of the 3rd picture. Note that on this picture, the back shell is upside-down). Image 2/3: The battery lies on the board (battery is pulled out, here. You can see it on the Step 4 picture). Two wires (red and black) go from a little PCB solded on the battery onto the motherboard. See next pictures to see the battery. Image 3/3: Important: be careful to not loose the power button which can escape easily. It is located on the lower right corner between the back shell and the motherboard.
  • When the cover (left) is open, you can easily extract the motherboard (middle of 3rd picture) from the back shell (on left, in the 3rd picture, this body shell is upside-down).

Image 1/2: Another battery that could fit is the HTC 3.7v 1650mAh Li-POL replacement Battery (dim. 5x50x60): http://www.amazon.com/35H00185-01M-1650mAh-Li-POL-Replacement-Battery/dp/B00MC1P154.   Or this one: http://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/ultra-thin-flat-lipo-3-7v_1783274635.html?spm=a2700.7724857.29.147.ERomfl (5x50x60mm). Image 2/2: In fact, I installed in my cybook a somewhat similar battery, the battery for the Samsung galaxy S4. It has same dimensions and about the same capacity but not for all models sold on the net, so I cannot recommand it - as remarked a reviewer of this guide. Nevertheless, it is working in my cybook for two years.
  • Here is a placement of the original battery. It is a Lipo 3.7V 1650mAh battery. Its dimensions are about 5 x 46 x 60mm. You can see such a battery (same mAh, same voltage) 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, but I think it fits well in the cybook.

  • The original battery is solded on a protection circuit on a very small external PCB from which 2 wires (red and black) go to the motherboard.

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

  • Then, you must determine the (+) and the (-) of the new battery to wire correctly the new battery on the small PCB. You possibly need additional wires to sold the (+) and (-) of the new battery to the small 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 as usual with USB cable on the cybook, and verify that the cybook go properly when the battery is charged (and cybook unplugged from the charging USB cable).

  • Then proceed in the reverse order to remount the cybook.

Martin - Ответить

I add a picture with the new Galaxy S4 battery in the step 4

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.
