I need to replace the battery in my Storm and am following the instructions in this post; https://bloomsky.desk.com/customer/en/portal/questions/17579973-storm-s1-battery-and-replacement-instructions?new=17579973.
However, I'm challenged in actually opening the case itself. Step 1 from the above post says,
"To open the device apply a firm pressure with the palm of your hand on the top half of the device just above the "drain spout". You should see slots opening at the places where are the hooks located and they should pop out. "
Does the "drain spout" refer to the rain capture hole in the center of the top, or to the openings on the sides where water drains from the unit? If the latter, does it matter which side?
Either way, I've attempted to apply significant pressure in each of these points and haven't seen any opening of the slots, not any movement at all. I'm afraid to apply more pressure for a) fear of breaking the shell and b) I don't have leverage to apply more without using some sort of clamp/vise arrangement.
What's the secret?
It refers to the openings on the sides where the water drains out. I would try to place a towel underneath the device to lessen the chance of breaking. It does take a little pressure to get those loose. I likened it to a chess compression during CPR. The top half should pop right off.
