I have 4 5008 batteries one of which I cut open. I pulled all the bits out and still I can't figure out how these things open. It must be at the top somewhere.

Since they can be recelled, it must be possible.

I am making an external powerpack at the moment and I may post some pictures for a guide sort of thing. I know its very simple to do, but I would have appretiated the same thing when I was researching how to do it. So keep your eyes peeled if you're interested.

On another note- has any one tried the c-mount cctv/ machine visioning lenses yet?

Hi James,

The end cap is glued on and it's the hardest part to remove without damaging it. Try some alcool, in order to soften the glue.
The rest is pretty easy. There are 3 screws hidden underneath a decorative plate that hold the contact assembly together.
Good luck.

ah yes I found found the screws with some lovley 30 year old glue covering them. A few minutes picking and scraping and a power drill did the job.
TOP TIP- Don't connect four fully charged batteries with two partially charged batteries. They produce an acrid smoke.
