This guide applies to both the original Onewheel and Onewheel+.

Its the white tab, then press down the small black one and pull the whole connector. Do not touch the other connectors. If you do not press down the small black lid while pulling the connector, you will brake it. If you do, don't panic, just find the broken piece and throw it away, its pretty useless for us.

Cover the connector with duct tape or electrical tape. I recommend you buy a Lithium battery pouch. The battery MUST be on Carry On luggage.
There are two sizes on the original OW, long on top, short on bottom. On the OW+, small screws are for underside of rails, medium screws are for top of footpad, and long screws are for the skid plates.
- Don't mention anything about the purpose of the battery.
- Print and take the second page of this PDF on you carry on luggage: FAA - Batteries Carried by Airline Passengers
- Place a printed page together with the board stating that the battery has been removed and shipped separately.
