Thanks for those ideas. I will probably just use a local source that
is convenient rather than being too concerned about price.
Can you describe how difficult it is to remove the old battery from a
motherboard and replace it with a new one? I assume it should be easy
(i.e. require only modest finger strength and no special tools or
techniques), but I would like confirmation of that.
