I cannot find a video on opening this up to replace the original "crappy" 18650's that I understand were in it.

Anyone upgraded / opened it up, doubtless there are lugs holding the pack in place but not having luck opening it..

Appreciated. (yup I know there's upgrade packs, but thought i'd take a gander & maybe see whats going on / can be done.

I found this when searching.....

Opening the battery pack is possible, I used tooth sticks to simultaneously hold the notches on all sides open.

Hope that helps Smiley

Some images here may help you. There is always adhesive tape to make the job more difficult.

Thanks, I found that also, however they didn't say where the clips were located, ..i'm notoriously kack-handed.

Stann, yup, sounds about right, the body of the dyson has cracked also (hmm) & the charger cable was such poor quality it has severed, the list gets longer.

I found a good one that shows how to butcher a DC31 DC34 DC35 DC44 battery, it's a good example of how not to Smiley
