OnePlus with its OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 became iconic for its red battery, at least in the eyes of JerryRigEverything, a popular YouTuber who is well known for phone teardowns, durability tests and of course clear back smartphones. Unfortunately, on opening the OnePlus 6 with the use of a heat gun and pry tools to cut through the adhesive, the OnePlus battery was far from being red. The unimpressive looking battery needed a change, especially if one were to use it with a clear back panel, allowing you to see its internal hardware.
This mod certainly gives the OnePlus 6 a new look. However, along with a new red battery and clear back panel, it also voids the warranty, which means if anything goes wrong with your smartphone, you’re on your own! This mod is performed by an experienced individual who has attempted a clear back panel on many glass panel smartphones before, so the mod works out as planned. Well, this does involve a lot of effort, time and of course, a few strings pulled there and there.
While the clear back panel can be achieved by scrapping off and removing the black paint, how would you make the battery red? Courtesy of dbrand, a company known for its skins and cases, hooked up the YouTuber with a red material which could be stuck on to the battery of the OnePlus 6, giving it the red look he so desired! It seems like the outcome of the project was a complete success and the result is a stunning clear glass back OnePlus 6 revealing a red coloured battery. What do you think of it?
