The Archos 605 with Wi-Fi combines the features of a portable television and a tablet PC. The rechargeable battery should last at least a couple of years. However, it will eventually drain to the point where it will no longer hold a charge. When this happens, you'll need to replace the battery. Fortunately, the battery in the Archos 605 is user-replaceable. It's not necessary to send the unit to a professional to replace the battery.

  1. 1

    Purchase a replacement battery. Archos does not recommend replacing the 605's battery with an aftermarket substitute. To order a battery directly from Archos, see the Resource section.

  2. 2

    Press and hold "Power" until the Archos 605 shuts off. Hold the unit with the screen facing down.

  3. 3

    Depress the small button on the bottom end. This releases the rear battery cover. Lift the old battery from the system.

  4. 4

    Position the new battery in the compartment. Line up the front contacts with the terminals in the compartment. Push the cover down to close it.
