wow.  No wonder it was so hard to pry that little bar off the battery and why I couldn't solder the new one back on to that arm :lol   augh.

UPDATE: The batteries arrived :crazy

Replacement of batteries, done! Apparently the most difficult part was undoing the glue that held the two pieces of the unit together. But, success!

Yay! Does your computer friend want to do this for a reasonable fee? I think there are several of us who would pay. I would especially pay if it could be converted so I could replace the batteries in the future.

can you ask your friend if he just soldered the feet of the batteries to the unit?  I'd be willing to try that myself if that was it (already have it opened up)?

I had to destroy the black plastic cover things on either side where the loop meets the actual electric part, then pried the electric pad open.

and that's the teknikal explenashun.  :lol:

I know this is a last years post but I would love for you to replace my batteries once mine dies. I am on a fixed income (someone donated the first one to me) it’s really helped my senior dog but I can’t pay 300$ for a new unit. Are you still offering to do this. I can pay for your time. Thanks

I have been waiting for our vet to get the order of new loops in for days now.  We decided to try and change the battery ourselves and it worked.  We bought the batteries at our local home hardware store.

Can you please share how? We're all dying to know.

Fyi, you can buy your loops directly from the company. And they have sales periodically if you're on their mailing list. They've had a lot actually since covid.
