Below are the steps you should take in order to remove the battery door cover.
The battery door cover has, on two sides, grooves. These grooves are designed to give you some “grip” as you squeeze inward on the sides of the battery door cover. Locate these grooves and place your thumb and index finger on the grooves and squeeze inward FIRMLY.
This is the most difficult part of this battery door cover removal process. It’s here that you’ll know if you have a stubborn cover or one that’s more agreeable and willing to come off without a fuss. Apply firm inward pressure while lifting. Make sure your fingers are dry as they can slip off under pressure which can be painful. Need some help? Contact us and we’ll be glad to assist you, free of charge.
In this step, if the door cover is partially off, but resists going any further, try inserting a paper clip into the partial opening and GENTLY prying it from side to side. This can help to get the cover off, but be careful if doing this so that you don’t break the clips that hold the cover on to the headset top. There are two clips, one on each side.
At this point you should have the cover off and the battery replaced. If you need a battery, we have those. You can find information here. Now to get the cover back on.
When installing the battery door cover, place the narrow end of the cover into the narrow end of the Plantronics headset as shown in the image above. Slide it into place before proceeding to the next step.
Apply firm pressure inward as shown above. While squeezing inward push the cover downward to get it positioned correctly. You may hear a pop which indicates that it snapped into place. Do a visual inspection of the cover to make sure that the seams align correctly to the headset top. If not, apply firm pressure inward and downward until everything lines up properly.
