Question about Health & Beauty
I understand that the battery is soldered in. I have a soldering iron but I just can't see where the battery is soldered in. The battery easily lifts off the white plastic cradle on the upper end but the lower end seems to be fixed. I have tried to heat up the end of the battery which appears fixed (so that the solder releases) but nothing seems to happen. Any ideas?

You will need to remove the two screws on the back to remove the back cover. Inside, you will first need to remove the two white plastic pieces that the screws you just removed screw into. The larger one snaps in and will have to be popped out from the bottom on each side. The other one has two screws that need to be removed. Once these are removed, you will be able to better access the batteries.
The batteries are soldered to the circuit board but instead of unsoldering them, I suggest carefully breaking the solder tabs off of the ends of the batteries. This leaves the old tabs still attached to the circuit board and you can them simply solder the new batteries to those old tabs. This prevents you from having to put a hot soldering iron directly to the circuit board.

For easier replacement, it is sometimes suggested that you use a modified installation technique. This is to break the tabs off of the old batteries rather than unsoldering them from the circuit board. This allows the old batteries to be removed but leaves the tabs attached to the circuit board. You can then solder the tabs from the new batteries to the old existing tabs
