Subject: Re: Charging FMR via hardware
From: mrlipring (

I got bored and decided to take my fmr to bits. like you do. :)

couldn't for the life of me get the battery out, so i didn't risk breaking
anything by forcing it. I'll try again soon, but it was in VERY tightly,
possibly evidence of swelling.
