The AuraHD's battery looks easy enough to replace, if you can defeat the
glue. The power connection just lifts off, at least mine does now, I may
have broken it loose at some point.

I couldn't figure out how to just reuse the image, so I linked to the post
I first used it in.

Run some waxed dental floss gently between the battery and the pcb as close to the battery as possible. This works for double sided tape and most of the low tack, soft gel hot melt glues used in electronics. Will not work for epoxy or hard gel hot melts, but you don't often run into those holding a battery because of they set too quickly, and have the possiblity of damaging the pcb.

Thanks much, good to know.

I might try that some day. What do you think about adding some glue remover
to the dental floss? (Might not work on the waxed though.)

My dental Hygienist will be so pleased that I have started using the floss she always gives me

Colleagues at work used to be suprised when my toolbox contained (along with everything else) two wooden dowels and about 10 boxes of floss. Then they saw how easily it could break the adhesives without breaking anything else (unlike jamming a screwdriver inbetween). Soon, everyone's toolboxes were overflowing with "sample" boxes.

Correct. If you are not careful enough, you could end up with a very slow healing combination ropeburn/papercut. DAMHIK.

I guess the stereotype of British dental conditions must be untrue, they do know what dental floss is.
