Tried and True Instructions
TOOLS: Solder; De-soldering braid; Soldering iron; Utility knife or Cutting pliers; Small-size and large-size flat-head screwdrivers.
Step 1: Deplete the old rechargeable battery by running the handle until it no longer turns on.
Step 2: Insert a large screwdriver (1/4 inch or slightly wider/thicker the better, in order to minimize damage to this fairly soft plastic of the base.) in the slot located at the bottom of the handle. Turn screwdriver counter-clockwise about 45 degrees to release the bottom cap.
Step 3: Carefully push the top shaft out to release the internal circuit board.
Step 4: Locate the two battery solder points on the circuit board. Use a small screwdriver to pry out the battery's end while un-soldering the solder joints one by one.
