Question about Norelco 7886XL Electric Shaver
I ordered a replacement battery pack on-line that was suppose to work in my Norelco 6885xl electric shaver. I opened the case and tugged gently on the dead battery pack but it won't pull free. Is it hardwired? How do i get the dang battery out? Do I need to have this done at a service center?
The battery pack is soldered to the shaver's circuit board. Yes, it's a poor design in building something that people can't readily service unless they have a soldering gun, ******, and wick, plus patience. However, there are plenty complaints online already, and my shaver won't get fixed by b-tching some more.
There are 2 choices for replacement:
1. Bring or mail it to a service center to have the batteries replaced. The fee usually runs $29.99-$39.99, which includes the battery, parts, labor, lubrating your motor, cleaning the interior, cleaning/stripping the cutters, heads, and trimmer, plus return shipping.
2. To save yourself $26-33 bucks, make sure you know how to solder and have the equipment described above. you can find single NiCad AA with solder tab for $3ea or a pair for about $7.95+. Table the batteries together, solder a single tab across +/- on one side, and solder the others onto their respective tabs in your shaver.
For me, I'd love nothing than to hobby around and do it myself, but with 3 kids, a full-time, job, Wii, and other hobbies, it's easiest to just send it out... some services will guarantee to have it done within 2 days of receipt. You'll just have a lil beard to test it out when you get it back. :-)

Find your manual. I removed a battery for this razer in the past. I cant seem to do it now (need another new battery) and am going to look for my manual.
