Each piece of adhesive has one or two black pull-tabs at the end, which are lightly adhered to the side edges of the battery.

In the following steps, you'll pull each tab to slowly stretch out the adhesive underneath the battery. These "command-strip" style adhesives lose their stick when stretched, so you can remove the battery with ease.
