Kindle 4 NT battery replacement?

Has anyone successfully replaced or seen reference to a replacement of an NT battery yet? I know it is glued in but people always seem to find a way around such things. I have the best e-ink screen I have ever seen after going through several to get it so I would like to figure out if extending it's life will be possible. I would hate to give it up just because the battery wears out.

Or...given that the Touch battery is not glued in and seemingly replaceable...could I transplant my screen into a Touch later on? Are they specs identical? I have seen the tear downs and it looks like it would be physically possible if they are compatible.

Basically after all the trouble I went through to get this wonderful screen I don't want to give it up

Hey thank you so much! Initially the teardown videos were saying it was impossible to take it out without damaging things but I had hopes someone would come up with a procedure. Looks pretty simple.

I tend to keep devices for as long as I can and I love the NT so this is great news. Now I know I don't have to give up this superb screen I got when the battery keels over and risk the Amazon e-ink lottery.

Thanks again.
