[* icon_note] InFor the next few steps, we will solderlast section, battery leads will be soldered to surface-mount solder pads. TheseThese type of joints are inherently difficultharder to solder because the lead has no solid anchor point such(such as a through holethru-hole) to hold it in place during soldering.
[* black] To de-solder the joint, place a solder wick on top of the existing solder ball and press down on the solder wick with the soldering iron. Once
[* black] Once
the solder melts and flows into the wick, remove itthe wick from the joint. When a section of solder wick is saturated with solder, it should be trimmed and discarded.
