Re: how to replace battery cells inside Digital HiNote Ultra
Most cases can be opened with a wood chisel.
Grab it in a vise, across the width right at the glue line.
Start at one corner and crack the glue. It takes some practice
to learn just how hard to tap it. You want short, but strong taps
to shear the glue. You can't just pry on it, have to break the joint.
then just propagate the crack around the perimeter with the chisel and
hammer. Chisel perpendicular to the side of the battery.
IF you try to slide the chisel in the crack and push, you'll just tear
things and make a mess. Break the joint with sharp taps.
If you hammer too hard, you damage the cells or the circuit board.
It's pretty easy about the third time you do it.
Now, you have it open, now what?
You really need a spot welder to change the cells.
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES LISTEN TO THE (insert favorite
descriptive term here)
WHO TELL YOU YOU CAN SOLDER ON THE CELLS.
Yeah, I know, I'm whizzing into the wind.....
