I'm sure this works, but it doesn't seem like the proper way to do this. I didn't like the feeling of prying on a flimsy battery at all. That's not practical. Instead get some molybdenum wire start it underneath the corners, then wrap the ends of the wire on like 2 pencils then tape them so u dont have to wrap the wire around your fingers because it will hurt lol. then apply heat, i went about 130 degrees is what my infrared gun said. I used a geat gun on low and a good distance away. Then just work the wire down the adhesive obviously lol. This worked out very easily for me and I felt safe and more confident about what I was doing. Good luck.
