|Dear Peter, Yes it’s possible. You can visit Samsung repair service or the good news is that there’s a simple way to do it. You don’t need to pay a hefty price to your phone repair company, either. You only need to buy a well-made spare battery. First off, we can estimate that as much as you’re willing to follow a few simple steps, the battery replacement process is pretty much a DIY one. So, you can spend in the range of $10 - $20 for a replacement battery. Usually, these replacements come with an installation kit. The kit can also be found alongside the user manual. If the user manual isn’t available, you can always find some helpful installation videos on youtube.|
