Refer to the video Jolt Wireless Sensor Battery Replacement for steps.
**Static Discharge Warning** - Replacing a battery requires handling a circuit board. Circuit boards can be damaged from electrical static discharge during handling. To reduce this risk, follow the best practices listed below
- Avoid direct contact with the circuit board by ONLY handling the edges of the board or holding the metal battery terminal during the entire replacement process.
- Electrically grounding yourself to discharge static electricity before handling the sensor. One example is to touch a metal object that is either touching the floor or touching a series of items leading to the floor. (i.e. A metal table, microwave)
- Avoid wearing clothing that gathers static easily. (i.e. jackets that are fuzzy, wool clothing)
- #1 and #2 size Phillips screwdrivers
- CR2450 3V Lithium Coin Battery (This can be purchased on the Jolt Shopping Cart)
- A thin, wooden, or plastic tool (i.e. popsicle stick or plastic knife)
Review Sensor Parts before proceeding, refer back to it as needed.
Battery Replacement Steps
1. Use the #2 Phillips screwdriver to unscrew the two outer screws holding the case together and then open the sensor case.
2. Using the #1 Phillips screwdriver, unscrew the small screw (Part E) which holds the circuit board (Part A) to the sensor case.
a. It is recommended that this screwdriver has a magnetic tip to avoid using fingers to grab the screw and increase the chance of a static discharge.
3. Remove the circuit board, grab the metal battery casing (Part C) and pull the board out.
a. Avoid touching the board itself.
4. While handling the board by the edges only, use a wooden or plastic tool to slide the battery (Part D) downward, out of the battery casing.
a. These tools MUST be used to avoid static discharge that could damage the circuit board or battery.
5. Insert the new battery into the battery casing, with the positive side facing up.
a. This is indicated with the positive (+) symbol.
6. Replace the circuit board so that the silver sensor chip (Part B) is lined up with the hole on the side of the black sensor case.
7. Replace the small screw (Part E) to reattach the circuit board to the sensor case.
a. Ensure the screw is snug but not too tight, as this could cause the circuit board to crack.
8. Replace the outer screws on the sensor case
