    Default Opening G2 Transmitter Battery?

    Has anyone opened the battery compartment to have the batteries replaced? They battery component is no longer available anywhere and I am hoping Batteries Plus can simply open, design and replace.

    How did you open it without a sledge hammer?

    Thank you,
    Erik

    Take the hit, get what you can on trade in from Collar Clinic and buy a new G3 transmitter.

    I have. Used a drimmel tool. The battery inside can be replaced for about $12. One choice is a Powerizer 7.2v 800mah it fits nicely. http://www.batteryspace.com/7.2V-800...-prewired.aspx The trick will be is making the connection to the circuit board on the old battery. My suspicions are the board is just overcharge protection and not needed if you have the option of charging outside of the cradle. I have charged the new battery with a Intellicharger i4. Making the connection to the transmitter will be my next challenge. I plan on taking it to a circuit board expert who can make the connections properly and reliably. It can be worked around I am sure. Fortunately I have another transmitter to use and in no hurry. BTW the positive side is the left side facing the front of the battery and transmitter. Battery plus can help make the connections?

    I agree.

    When the receiver batteries are no longer available, it'll be time to worry about how to open up the battery packs and replace the cells.

    Hopefully, by the time that happens, I'll have at least one that's gone TU, and I'll be able to show and tell how I rebuilt it.
