SKU 8841700 Mods like this once came with pull tabs that were heavier duty and wrapped around the battery. You can see it in the photos. I've really only seen these on older Chinese squonks that aren't available anymore. Most people I see use this method these days wrap tape around, leaving a short tab, like mentioned earlier.

I use a lot of transparent panels, so I never use a strap...I just pry down from the top with a fingernail or something...some batteries are shorter, so try out different ones...I use "brownies" by LG because they are a tad shorter, and really come in and out much easier than Sony or Samsungs.

Of course, if you've got a SXK, you can USB charge!
