    got it, thank you. I'm likely just going to keep my blade, i honestly get by fine without the extra wattage and have the temps down to an acceptable level. However if i do decide to have it RMA'd do you suggest i take out my LM evidence and apply paste again? Can't do anything about the fujipoly pads though.

    Hi guys,

    This is probably the dumbest question, but could some post a picture or so on how to disconnect the battery?

    Most videos I see people just don’t disconnect it, even for repaste which seems a bit odd.

    Thanks

    Hi everyone! Got my Blade 15 (512 SSD, 1060, 144Hz) on Wednesday. So far, I'm quite happy with it. However, I have experienced one weird issue/problem and am looking for a possible solution/workaround. So basically the battery will only charge when the laptop is running and the power chord is plugged in or if I turn off the laptop/put in sleep mode with the power chord plugged in. It won't charge when the laptop is powered off and I only plug in the power chord after the laptop has shut down. Anyone else having this issue? Kinda seems like a software/firmware issue to me (rather than a hardware one). Don't wanna RMA this thing due to such a stupid/annoying issue.

    Kind regards

    Just got my replacement Blade... wanted to let you guys know it was assembled on 7/18 so I do have the latest batch. I will provide any more details worth sharing as I test it today and over the weekend.

    It stated on the box, mine assembled in China 6/18, that’s month and year I believe.
    Saw other users reported this on Razer forum, I don’t have that issue though. On power off condition it’s still charging. You can PM staff there, he said that to user with the issue on that thread.

    From taking a look at the photos, there are some screws that hold down the battery. Once you remove the screws, you should be able to lift up the battery and remove a single connector that goes to the motherboard. I don't have previous experience with Razer laptops, but the ones I did work with were all like this.

    Try removing only the top two screws first since I'm not sure which ones are actually holding down the battery.

    On a side-note, I stripped a few of my Blade's screws. Not sure how, maybe my iFixit screwdriver isn't as good as I thought.15 minutes with support and they are sending me 15 replacement screws.

    Also ordered some Gelid GP-Extreme thermal pads, both 1.5mm and 2mm for the ICC heatsink and my MX300 SSD. They have a thermal conductivity of 12W/mK. Very cheap off QuietPC even with shipping. https://www.quietpc.com/gelid-gp-pads

    Just for reference, some people may be wondering when their machine was assembled. You can tell from the serial number.
    For example, here is a picture of an older Blade I found on the internets (from ifixit I think):
    [​IMG]
    The serial number "BY1336102400025" is coded like this:
    "BY" = manufacturer code. In this case it stands for BYD, Build Your Dreams, who currently makes all of Razer's Blades.
    "1336" = Date code. This machine was assembled the 36th week of 2013.
    "1024" = product code. Not sure of the exact significance, but it should identify the product and possibly the skew. Not sure how this is different from the product or model number.
    "00025" = sequential # of units built that week, so this was the 25th machine assembled in week 36 of 2013. This is the last bit that makes your SN unique.
