    • Use the spudger to push the USB port on the bottom of the device inward.

    • Hold the device firmly between two fingers. Be sure you aren't holding down the top of the device; the circuit board will slide out of the shell through that end.

    • The plastic LCD cover and the key pad will now be free; they were held in place by the tension between the case and the internal circuit board.

    • The battery is the large packet-like component beneath where the buttons would be.

    • Gently lift it off of the circuit and move it off of the board, allowing access to the wires.

    • Snip the wires using a wirecutter. Be careful not to nick the battery and cause battery acid to leak everywhere. That would be unfortunate.

You should specify the battery type. The plastic wrap on the photo shows 180mAh capacity and it has to be rechargeable, unlikely to be lead-acid and therefore should not leak acid. Button cell batteries aren’t usually rechargeable so please explain exactly what battery type you used - manufacturer, model no. etc. Since you suggest cutting the wires, how do you reconnect to the new battery? The photo is inadequate to show how this is done. If the battery is a replaceable button cell, I would not expect it to be in an apparently sealed plastic bag.
