    • Place the battery in a container off to the side. If you do this for every step beyond this point, you will keep better track of your parts and make reassembling the device far easier when you get around to it.

    • It might not be necessary, but we recommend using an anti-static bracelet or anti-static mat from this point on. Any charge on your finger tips may cause harm to the device.
