Unfortunately I don't have this thing anymore, but if you look up the official specs, then go by the proportions on-screen, you can probably get a decent idea.

Hi I see it's 3 years later but I was wondering if you remember how you disconnected the battery? My pack is fully charged and I'm a little worried on how to disconnect.
