If your device has copper tape attached to the battery, carefully peel it off the battery.

SERIOUSLY, don't bother trying to peel up the copper tape. Just cut it, and replace with new tape. Much easier than trying to detach the old and new batteries from their backings.

    • If you aren't equipped with the T5 Torx screwdriver, you could try using your fingers, although it will be very difficult to remove it.

SERIOUSLY, you guys need to add a step to unplug the red and black wires, and then detach them from the battery cover!
