Oh, I found it!

What comes off is the T-shaped chrome piece on the topside. To pry it off, start at the blunter end of the H500, on either side of the USB port. And note that this chrome piece is just a veneer, sitting on top of the black (in my case) plastic housing.

This web page shows and discusses the disassembly process, on the way to reusing the H500 innards for something else:

    Oops, there's more. The "M" disk on the top seems to be held in place with a mild adhesive. A very finely-tipped screwdriver worked to gently pry it off. And sure 'nuf, as the Guest above indicated, there's a screw underneath it, the removal of which permits you to pop apart the upper and lower halves of the device. Carefully, though, because there are two very small, twisted wires that connect the two halves. (I'll shut up now... :-)

HOW TO CHANGE BATTERY HEADSET H500

Why do you think you need to replace the battery? A common sign that your Motorola Bluetooth headset needs a new battery is when you repeatedly hear five quick high tones in successive, one-minute intervals. Another symptom of a low or dead battery is when you try to scroll to Power and your headset doesn't come on. The Motorola H500 headset has a long battery life, but the battery eventually will go bad. Unfortunately, the battery is integrated as part of the headset's circuitry and should not be replaced by its user. Motorola strongly advises against trying to change the battery. Attempting to replace the battery voids the headset's warranty. By sending the headset to Motorola for repair, you can have a new battery installed without the risk of damage to your equipment.
But you can try the following at your own risk:
Locate the battery door at the rear of the headset and open it.
Remove the old battery. Install a new battery to match the plus and minus illustrations on the battery compartment. Shut the battery door back in place.
Select "Menu" on your phone. Select "Settings."
Select "Connection," "Bluetooth Link," and "Setup."
Select "Power." Select "Change."
Select "On," and then press "Select."
Press the "Call" button and hold it down. Release it when the LED light blinks.

Blueparrot B250 XT - 2 months old - battery will not hold charge. When plugged into charger a solid green light is on.

If your headset is showing a green light when it is plugged into the charger it means the battery is receiving power. If you remove the unit from the charger and it will not turn on or function properly there is likely an issue with one of the control circuits. Without seeing the unit we would not be able to tell you which circuit is experiencing some sort of issue but the unit does need service. The VXi, Blueparrott B250-XT has a one year repair warranty from date of purchase. Please call our After Market Services Department at 800-742-8588 x2011 to obtain a return authorization number (or RA#). After you have received your RA# you may send us your headset to us via any means you choose (prepaid) with your RA# marked on the package, please include a copy of your invoice or receipt. If you do not have a copy of your proof of purchase we use the production date in the serial number as the warranty default start date. The After Market Services group will either replace your unit with like new product or repair your headset as necessary. In either case, our goal is to turn the unit around for outbound shipping in two business days (please note this goal can be affected by volume at the time your unit arrives).

We hope this information is helpful to you. Feel free to visit us on line at www.vxicorp.com for more details on our warranty process as well as FQA information for all of VXi's products.

Motorola Razor V3M and H500

This is a common issue with headsets is they stop working properly when they go bad. Not all of them of course, and the symptoms are different. Take it back and get a replacement.
