What is the trick to...


opening the thinkjet 225B battery pack?

I get the clips and etc but it still won't open. Not going to force it cause there must be a trick to it!

Cheers, Geoff

battery opening and rebuild instructions

The pack is opened, easily with heat applied to the top of the case. Knowing it is double sided tape made the opening much easier.

As i remember; having more hands than Shiva and some thin prying/scraping thingers helped. Just too much double sided tape in there. If i didn't break mine; you'll do fine.


Thanks DB,

Applying heat in the form of a hair dryer really loosened the adhesive on the double sided tape.

I understand the need to secure the batteries but industrial strength adhesive tape? Does overkill come to mind. Granted it did fullfill its purpose.

Cheers, Geoff
