How Do I Replace an AirTag Battery?

Replacing an AirTag battery is not difficult. AirTags use the equivalent of a CR2032 lithium coin battery as its power source. The steps to replace the battery are as follows:

  • Take off the case you are using with the AirTag.
  • Position the AirTag with the silver cap facing upward.
  • Unscrew the silver cap by pressing down on it and turning it counterclockwise.
  • When the cap is loose, remove it from the surrounding casing.
  • Take out the old battery.
  • Replace it with a new CR2032 lithium coin battery with the positive sign and words facing upward.
  • Replace the silver cap by screwing it back on clockwise until it is secure.
  • When the cap has been reattached properly, the AirTag will sound like a chime.
