Anyone butchered a battery? By this I mean pulled the end cap off with the locking catch and replaced it for another?
I only ask as I have just received a Lenmar battery from the US which I have waited over a month for and the bloody catch is broken. The twist handle has a bit of snapped plastic by the hinge meaning it drops off. I emailed the seller a couple of days ago but no reply as yet. The thought of having to send it back and wait a similar amount of time isn't pleasing. If it is fairly easy to do I have 2 old batteries that don't hold charge as donors.
I've never done it but it looks like it's only held on by two small screws. I'd pull the end off one of the old batteries and see how it goes : )
Here's one taken with the 90mm ts-e
