About: I'm a Student at a technical school and I'm very interested in electronics and how things work.

In this Instructable I will fully disassamble the Libratone Zipp Mini

If your bottom plastics is broken you can follow the instructions until step 5.

If you want to replace the battery follow until step 13.

Step 1:

This my Zipp Mini - it fell down from the table and hit the ground a little bit too hard...

At first you have to remove the cover - I assume you know how to do that...

Step 4:

Remove the bottom rubber stand using a slotted screwdriver and your hands. The remove the now visible four screws.
