These batteries tend to flame and smoke when the plates touch. I have never heard of one exploding yet. Always keep yourself safe with Li-Ion batteries. They are evil. I doubt a repair shop will touch it. I would go outside and do it. Disconnect the battery making sure it is not glued to the shell and launch it. If it flames out, no biggy. Now connect your new one.
