Nexus 7 reborn
on 6 March 2015
I bought this as a replacement for the original battery in my 1st Gen Nexus 7, which since I upgraded to Android 5.0 has been almost unusable (battery charge draining in a couple of hours, and even when charged, everything impossibly slow/freezing constantly). The replacement battery is slightly smaller in size, and is marked with a lower capacity, but after installing it (3 days ago), the device works perfectly - speed is back to normal, and the battery seems to hold its charge like it used to. Very happy. I will report back if this changes over time.
Instructions on replacing the battery are here: https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Nexus+7+Battery+Replacement/9895
It's very straightforward to do.
