Replacement battery for the BPS-F digital scale for DIY repair
Important note: This 4,5V battery is ONLY suitable for the BPS scale, a soldering iron is required to change it!
All other G&G scales that have a built-in battery require the 6V battery which you can also find in the shop.
Depending on the version of the balance (the BPS has been on the market for > 10 years and there have been some small changes), 1-3 cables are soldered to each pol of the battery. The colour of the cables can differ in the insulation.
Before removing the battery, we recommend taking a photo of the old position and the cables connected to the poles so that you can reconnect the cables correctly to the poles of the battery (marked as red + black). The battery is held in position with a screwed clamp and additionally fixed on the underside with double-sided adhesive tape to avoid rattling.
The easiest way to remove it is to pry the battery upwards with a blunt object (e.g. a spoon) after removing the clamp.
