    • you will need to slowly cut through the foam to separate the wires from the battery. then use a soldering iron to desolder the old battery from the board these connections go through the entire board.

    • solder the new battery in and test the charging before reassembly.

    • the new battery I ordered was slightly larger but it fit with no problems. I found the wires inside this device to be fairly robust and did not have any issues with wires breaking or dislodging.

    • When I re-assembled I used small amounts of gorilla glue for both the case and the rubber cover. it worked very well and has worked well since. for more details I put together a short video you can check out.
