Hello,   I have one battery that is really hard to remove,  takes both hands & I'm worried I will damage something.  The release will not depress enough to clear the catch.  I have to work it back & forth and sometimes use a pocket knife to push the locking tab before it will let go.   Is anyone else having this type of problem?  I have 3 batteries, 2 of the original P4 & 1 of the high capacity.  It is the high capacity battery that is hard to remove.  

thanks!  I hope this makes sense?

Are you sure you're removing it correctly?

Thanks for the reply, Yes, I believe so, I  remove the other 2 batteries with no problem, only the high capacity  sticks every time.

A drop of salad oil might help.

You might have to squeeze it a bit firmer, than the others. This has been explained.

It should loosen up a little, with more use. ;-)

You need to build up the hand muscles, not have a loose flight pack. Haha

But yeah, I know what you mean. Having a battery that won't budge, can try ones last raw nerve...  ;-)

Yeah, I know what you mean. Just need to get a grip :-)

...some folks complain about it being too loose, I prefer I tight fit.

...and the salad oil. Hadn't thought of that one!

Well, that video in the other thread has the technique. I was very sus it would make a difference removing a stubborn battery, but it just slide out that way. Put it back in and tried with one hand, and the bugger just woudn't release. Used the technique again, and it just slide out as before. Amazing.

That's something the manuals would never have explained. So we all, are fortunate to have the wisdom of the forum regulars and mods here. ;-)

Glad it has worked for you, & so did you feel the weight, lift off of your shoulders, when it released the battery... Ha

And exhale... ;-)
