    boom.

    i don't know your experience level, but would add a warning. if you have to ask, then you need to stop and think about what your life/health is worth compared to buying a replacement.

    these packs have explosive potential. think small roadside IED. even when discharged or if the computer says there is 0% remaining. if you crush is or SHORT it out (ie when taking it apart) there is a real chance of you getting hurt. i would recommend against it.

    been there, done that, have a ton of military training. not worth it to save a few bucks. my two cents.

    best of luck and good health no matter what you pick.

    I'm glad to see that you didn't blow yourself up, and that you probably won't.

    I've been taking things apart since I was a child, not always successfully.;) But I won't go near dead batteries or CRTs.

    Plus, when you consider a replacement from somewhere like TechOrbits is only a measly $20...
