    • Insert a thin screwdriver into the cartridge hole.

    • Gently pull the screwdriver towards the direction of where the OLED screen is. The lever action will cause the case to snap partly off as shown in picture 2.

    • You only need to insert the screwdriver in a couple of centimeters. The halves should come apart with relative ease, do not force it.

    • After making the initial separation using the screwdriver, manually pull each halve apart from each other. As always, do not be impatient as there are thin plastic tabs that could be damaged by one's haste.
