    Possible, but there is a good chance of breaking the clips that hold the touchpad together. I have no clue where to get a replacement battery either.

    Yes.

    1). Get battery, here maybe:

    2). Replace old one with it as per:

    Retaining clips are apparently fairly robust.. but work gently, evenly & slowly.

    No worries!

    I wouldn't say they are robust, I have taken one apart very carefully. You will still most likely break most of the clips. Although to be honest it stays together quite well without them!

    Here's another thread discussing the battery clips.

    I'm hoping these threads don't get many hits for a year.
    You plug your phone in?

    Battery replacement is possible, although not recommended by HP. Opening your device in any unauthorized fashion automatically voids the warranty on the device.

    The battery is covered by the same warranty as the device. If you are outside of your one year hardware manufacturer warranty than a dead battery is not covered (unless you are willing to pay the out of warranty fee).

    As long as no further tampering of the unit itself has been discovered than yes it would be covered under warranty.
