This shaver was pretty clearly not designed for battery replacement. To open, first remove the screen and blades, and unhook the metal collar from the tab on the back of the case. Then carefully pry off the black inset on the front of the shaver. Underneath it, near the bottom are two screws. Remove these. The case is now only held together by several plastic latches, which can be carefully pried apart with a small screwdriver. The two 2/3A size batteries are soldered to the printed circuit board, which can be pulled out (don't break the wires to the motor) by a little wiggling. The original batteries in mine are 1100mAh, and I have just ordered 1600mAh replacements. The new ones don't have tabs - so soldering them in place is probably going to be a challenge.

My R5130 kept falling apart when I shaved. I really like Remington Shavers (Spectrum Brands) and have had good luck with them until the R5130 model.
1.) -THEY SHIPPED ME A NEW HEAD ASSEMBLY (BUT)- The original one I got had poorly formed plastics tabs on the blade retainer (head) I Googled Remington Shavers and used their Consumer Service tab to request a fix. They sent me a new head assembly free of charge and yes it worked much better. However, it eventually the heads started falling off again.
2.) RUBBER BAND FIXED IT - I looked it over again and thought that the range of movement and forces on the assembly pieces was just more than the design could handle so I looked for a way to contain some of the movement. I slipped a single thin (1/16"x1/8") - 2" diameter rubber band around the three head assembly and the problem has been completely eliminated. I can shave normally now. The rubber band nearly disappears under the black head flanges so it doesn't even look bad. The shave is a little firmer now but it still has most of the flexibility of the original design.
This simple fix will be a hard one for Remington (Spectrum Brands) to adopt but you might help spread the word. I am sure they will avoid this problem in the next models.

SOURCE: How do you remove the
The Arcitec series shavers have a very poor design and shaver heads can not be disassembled like the older model that you had. The blades can not be removed from the assembly that contains them. The only way to clean them is to run thm under hot water or ren them in an alcohol solution. Unfortunately, this method still leaves much to be desired.
Many users of the Arcitec models report having to change the heads twice as often because of this.
