C. Apply some BGA Paste Flux to charging PMIC, heat with Hot Air Gun at 350℃
D. Detach the charging PMIC from the board, remove tins on the bonding pad with Soldering Iron at 360℃. Then heat with Hot Air Gun at 360℃ and remove tins thoroughly with resin-soaked Solder Wick. Once done, clean with PCB Cleaner
E. Apply some BGA Paste Flux to the bonding pad, align the new charging PMIC to the right place(Tips: put it in the right direction). Solder with Hot Air Gun at 350℃, air gear 2. Once done, clean with PCB Cleaner.
