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.

  • 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.
