[* black] We tried valiantly with our [product|IF145-108|iFixit 6 Inch Metal Ruler] to free the battery from its aluminum confinesbattery, but to no avail. Rather thanRealising that we were using the wrong method, we put the ruler aside for now.
[* black] Upon closer inspection, we realised the batteries were not glued in, but held in with 3M double sided tape.
[* red] The good News: The batteries are not glued in.
[* red] The Bad news: The bond created by 3M tape is almost permanent.
[* black] We ran the batteries down to 0% to minimise the

[* black] The first step
