Use blunt nose tweezers to grip the black adhesive pull tab located on the top right edge of the battery. Lift the pull tab with the tweezers until you are able to grip it with your fingers.

Pull on the pull tab with a slow, steady force at a shallow angle to prevent the pull tab from snapping in the middle.

Try to keep the adhesive strips flat and unwrinkled during this procedure; twisted or wrinkled strips will stick together and break instead of pulling out cleanly.

If the adhesive becomes hard to pull, you can roll it around a spudger and continue pulling.

If the pull tab breaks prematurely, use tweezers to retrieve the remaining length of adhesive and continue pulling.

If you are unable to retrieve it, move on to the next step.
