Re: airplane mini -dont know how to access battery
Put a note on Facebook and suggestions - take it to a local jeweler, go to Wallmart where they have all kinds of batteries. So, I'll try the jeweler, and I have to find a wallmart - we are 14 miles from NYC - there must be one around here - so - not solved, but suggestions thanks anyway.adriana

The things remembered clock is just tension fit in the housing. Easiest way to get it out is to get a plastic suction cup. Press the suction cup onto the face of the clock and pull and jiggle till the clock comes out. This way you wont gouge up the wood trying to pry the clock out with a screwdriver. It takes an N cell battery: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N_battery

These are general quartz wall clock instructions as I dont know enough about what type/style of clock you have.
Open the access door to the dial and hands of the clock if required. Some battery-operated clock movements are sealed inside the clock case with a back panel that is screwed in place. To gain access to the hand set knob, remove the back panel screws using the appropriate tipped screwdriver.
Turn the minute hand (or turn the hand set knob at the rear of the movement if access is available) carefully counterclockwise or clockwise until the correct time is reached. Keep in mind that using the hand set from the rear would require turning the knob in a clockwise direction in order for the hands to turn counterclockwise.
Move the hour hand carefully with your fingers near the center of the hand to the hour that the clock is striking if the striking chime is not counting the correct hour. The hour hand is a friction fit hand and will move without engaging the minute hand.
Replace the back panel and tighten the screws with the screwdriver if removal of the back panel was necessary to access the hand set knob.
open up the watch. there is a small spring that could fall out. dont lose it. use a small pin to pull battery clip off. put new battery in, replace strap and pink plastic. short the tiny contact labeled AC with the + on the battery. check that the clock now operates. lastly, reassemble
there is a spring inside that goes betweeen one of the contact holes. dont know which.
It's not easy. You're probably better off brining it to the jeweler unless you already have the tools. You'll need a precision screwdriver set. Under the clock there's a tiny screw. Carefully remove that to pop the clock off the front of the plane -- don't strip it. Then get a standard flathead screwdriver to remove the cover behind the clock. Just turn it so that the tabs on the cover appear in the little openings around the edge. It should then fall out. If not, use a tiny screwdriver to remove it.
Under there is the clock. Remove the plastic spacer. You'll see the tiny little battery, which is held in by a tiny metal arm. Move the arm and the spring behind the battery will pop it up a little. Use a tiny screwdriver to carefully remove the battery. The battery is SR626SW.
Have fun putting it back together! Whoever designed this thing is on my s-list.
Just in case you didn't manage to set the time / date on your tocuh screen thermo clock, I'll try to help you from my experience (no available manual at the moment!).
1. To set the time, touch the clock icon on the upper left corner;
2. Keep touching the screen for longer than 5 seconds, on the hour area;
3. Touch the hour area until you get what you want (if you prefer the 24 hour display style, touch repeatedly until you get the right hour without the AM / PM indicator next to it);
4. Touch the clock icon again to start the clock;
5. Repeat steps 1 to 4 to set up the minutes (the hour area will be replaced by the minutes area);
6. To set the date, tocuh the calendar icon on the left hand side;
7. Keep touching the screen for longer than 5 seconds, on the year area;
8. Touch the year area until you get what you want;
9. Touch the month area until you get what you want;
10. Touch the day area until you get what you want;
11. The screen will reverse to the time display after 5 seconds if no touch.
12. The TEMP (temperature) area, if touched, is toggling between C and Fahrenheit degrees.
P.S. I don't know if it is possible to set an earlier time / date, except touching. I mean, if 2009 is on the screen and you want 2007, you'll keep touching up to 2030 and then from 1901 up to 2007.
