Milwaukee One Key Hack: How To Fix Milwaukee One-Key Battery Tracking?
The most common problem with Milwaukee’s “One-Key” tool is the fact that it doesn’t work properly when connected to your phone. The reason why it doesn’t work properly is because the battery inside of the device does not have enough power left to keep up with all of its functions. This means that the phone will constantly lose connection with the tool and thus cannot perform any of its functions.
The solution to this problem is simple: You need to replace your smartphone’s battery. There are several ways you can do so, but if you’re looking for a way that isn’t too expensive then there is no better option than buying a new smartphone.
However, if you don’t want to spend money on a new smartphone, or you just want to make sure that your Milwaukee One-Key works properly then you might consider replacing the battery yourself. That’s where this guide comes into play.
In order to successfully fix Milwaukee’s “One-Key” battery tracking issue, you’ll first need to download and install a free application called Milstar Mobile Battery Analyzer (MBA).
Once installed, you can use this program to test and see what kind of condition your battery is in. There are two versions of the software: a free standard version and a $4.99 Pro version that provides more in-depth information about the battery’s health.
Although it may seem like the $5 Pro version is worth it, if you don’t want to spend any money then you can stick with the free standard version and still get accurate results.
How to Replace the Battery
To replace the battery, you will first need to gather all of the tools needed for the job. This includes a T5 Torx Screwdriver (or something that can remove your battery’s screws), your replacement battery, and of course your new battery’s adhesive strips.
After gathering everything that you need, start by flipping your phone over and removing the battery cover by taking out the two screws located on the back of your phone. Under this cover, you will see a white sticker that says “Do Not Remove”. You will need to remove this sticker in order to gain access to your battery.
Using your screwdriver, pry the edges of the sticker away from the back cover of your phone and pull it off completely (be careful not to let the sticky side of the label touch anything other than the back cover or else it might leave a residue). Under the sticker, you will see your battery. It should be held in place by two screws. To remove the battery, simply undo these two screws and lift it out of your phone carefully.
Now that the old battery has been removed, you can begin putting the new one into place. The new battery should also come with two adhesive pads.
