How to disassemble Ecocharge 6v
« on: July 19, 2010, 09:59:46 PM »

I'm cleaning out my taping closet and have several old eco-charge batteries that are probably on the order of 7 to 8 years old.  They will no longer hold a charge.  However I do really like the molded top they put on there which has the XLR connectors.  My current SLAs are a little more home brew and I'd like to somehow take that molded top from the eco-charges and reuse these on newer 6v SLAs. 

Is there a safe way to take the molded top off these eco-charge batteries?  I've been trying to shove a flat head screw driver in there but don't want to apply too much force and crack the case.  Any suggestions are appreciated.

I actually did this last year and posted a how-to on it in the archive:

Wow, nice to know. Mine still hold a charge for now, getting old though. Nice to have another option.

Thats awsome. I just charged up my bp-50 that is about 7 years old and I am wondering how long it is going to last this weekend for a 4 day festival. No fear I have can charge it if I need to. This is great if I find that it will not hold a charge. Thanks.
