Can I use tape instead of adhesive strips when replacing the battery?

I didnt realize you had to buy adhesive strips when also buying a new battery. I am desparate however and dont want to wait another week for the adhesives to come in. Can i use double sided tape instead?

@lehud like @benjamen50 already said, yes you can. Any good hardware store will have double sided tape you can use. It does come in a variety of thickness and something like 3M 4624 will work. Not as convenient as the strips offered by ifixit but good enough to hold your battery in place.

Most double sided tape is to thin to gap between the battery and case. Best to wait. Sorry ;-{
