In the PDF instructions it describes how to remove the batteries. The instructions fail to mention that there is a spit of yellow glue that is holding one of the batteries to the curcuit board with a death grip. Undoubtedly, you will have to use a knife, not in the glue, but on the skin of the battery. Pull on the teather wire, and slice the battery skin around the glue.
If after removing the batteries, and you are not thouroughly discusted with the manufacturer, then purchase a couple of AA Ni-cad batteries solder the positive of one battery to the negative of the other. then solder the free positive end to the red wire, and then the blue wire to the free negative end. Then try to remember how to reverse the process and put it back together, without leaving any parts out. ;-)
There is a risk of injury by overheating the battery when soldering. That should be avoidable if you remember how to drop solder. Just like its name, it involves having the wire securely held in place. Then hold solder iron over the wire/battery end. Then take some rosin-core solder and apply the solder to the hot tip. Then make sure the newly melted solder lands on the contact. Keep in place until it cools and holds the wire to the battery.
If you think this is better than writing to Remington complaining that they did not make it easier and use contacts, instead of solder, so we can simply pop in a new set of batteries. Or maybe look at other manufacturers, and see if they are any better.

You can buy the motor drive unit here: http://www.electricshaverstore.com/get_item_7030621_braun-motor-drive-assembly-pulsonic-5671-790cc-959.htm but it needs to be calibrated to the circuit board according to everything I have read. Unfortunately, I do not know the procedure for the calibration.

A 12 months old wet and dry shaver must have a defective battery after such long period of use.
The battery cell is weak and unable to hold charge.
You sure need a battery replacement. It's not necessary you get a Panasonic battery replacement as long as its the same size, shape and watt. You can get another battery from any electronics accessories store within your vicinity.
All you need do is disassemble the shaver, remove the old battery, use it as a sample for the replacement so that you can get the same battery size, shape etc..
To disassemble the shaver, first, take the shaver outside and use a can of air to clean the shaver. Repeat this at various stages of the dis-assembly, being careful not to lose any parts!
Remove the two screws at the bottom (the end that plugs in to the charger) of the shaver, and remove the bottom cover. Keep track of the two small washers, and a small flat plastic piece, about 10mm square that fits inside of the cover - these keep the unit waterproof.
Open the shaver head, and remove the blade assembly from the white plastic vibrating arm by pulling on it - it will pop off. Undo the two screws on either side of the arm, keeping track of the two small washers under the plate - these will tend to stay in place and stick to the metal plate or the plastic underneath the plate.
Press on the mechanism from the end you first opened, and notice a gap opening up where at the other end, just below the head latch button and hinge. Gently pry open this crack, and work the case apart. Keep the large O-ring that seals the case, and make a note of its orientation so that you can assemble it the same way.
This has been too easy, I know, so there is one headache. I have not figured out how to remove the sliding trimmer assembly. Because of this, I found it was necessary to pry the large black U-shaped plastic clamp from the vibrating arm at the same time you pull the innards out of the case
By now you should have access to the battery, and proceed for the battery replacement.
I hope you understand the above.
