SOURCE: watch battery replacement
I have a Timex Expedition Indigo with a metal case. Not sure of the exact model number but on the back there an M6 below Expedition. Anyway, I had the same problem of snapping the back back on. I found a "battery" website that had some suggestions that should be typical of any snap back case watch. http://www.online-batteries.co.uk/whichbattery.shtml specifically they said that when you try to press the back on it must be flat (not one edge down as I had been trying) Put the watch face down on a non scratch surface and press with both thumbs evenly. If that doesn't work a press will be needed. If you have a vice a couple of blocks of wood to distribute the load on the front and back may work, otherwise take it to a jeweler with the proper equipment. The thumb routine didn't work for me. I have a vice but figured many wouldn't so I tried something else first. I put the watch face down on a piece of wood. I found a small 2" long scrap of wood (3/4" x 1.5" approx) that spanned the back. I centered the back (aligned properly) placed the block of wood squarely and centered across the back and tapped the end of the block with a hammer. First try didn't work, second one did. I used a rubber mallet as the hammer but a regular hammer or other heavy object would work. The trick, I think, is to get everything lined up and square so the blow is centered and even. Also, I'd suggest cleaning the back and the groove in the case and be sure the rubber gasket is properly positioned. This will give you the best chance of retaining the waterproofing. And remember to check that the watch is running before you do this. Some need to be reset (usually with a very small screwdriver or pin) after replacing the battery. There should be a small hole with some printing next to it. You may need a magnifying glass to see/read it. Good Luck, Richard

SOURCE: Battery needs replacement
Use a med/thin guitar pick and slip it under the edge of the casings and run it around the perimeter to snap open the casing locks. This method works for all snap together devices, and I have not found a better way yet!! Good luck. A FixYa rating would be great for this bit of knowhow..

The backup battery is located inside the phone and canno be replaced by normal methods. the phone needs be disassembled and the battery are solded on the board.
the lifetime of these bateries are very high, maybe 5 or more years, and the charge occurs every time when you charge the phone.
Try to leave your phone charging for more than 3 hours, and if the battery dont charge, try a master reset on it.
If ater all, the battery dont charge, maybe you make some mistake or shorted some circuit. Take apart your phone again and re-check all the steps to reassembly.

You can certainly go to shaveroutlet.com and pay $9.99 per cell, or go to a place like onlybatteries.com and pay $3.69 per cell with a higher mAh (2200 vs. 1650, which means a longer run time).
Keep in mind that if you're not skilled at soldering, you'll have to buy the batteries plus circuit board. This will end up costing you nearly $40. In that case, you're probably better off going with a new shaver (get a new old stock 8000 series shaver for around $50 on average, at "that auction site"). :-)
