Hi Karu,
 
Basically you should not use a teardown as a guide. It is written on the very first line! Ok here it looks to be very easy, the only tools you really need is a [product|IF145-039] screw driver (It is very tiny and it's not something that everybody have in is tool box) and eventually a [product|IF145-002].
 
Anyway, before to think changing your battery, you should find out what goes wrong. Otherwise you may spend money and time in a new battery and tools but the problem can be anywhere else.
 
== AA few questions: ==
== AA few questions: ==
 
* Pealing the striker over the battery, is it the only thing you've done?
* What tool did you use for that: plastic or metallic? I'm not very sure but if you used a metallic tool and if the screws are part of the battery contacts, you may have short circuited the battery.
* Something very important to trouble shoot: does your device suddenly shutdown when trying to look at below this sticker or slowly lost battery power, shutdown because out of power and never recharge?
 
If you have a multimeter you can try to test the battery voltage. As per the teardown, the battery is marked to deliver 3.8v but this is strange because LiPo cell usualy deliver 3.7v. Anyway, testing it for voltage, if the battery is in good condition and charged, you should have around 3.7 / 3.8v out. It maybe more complicated if the battery is not charged.
 
You can try between both screw but if you have nothing here it does not mean it is dead. Otherwyse you're gona have to remove the screws and test directly at the contacts.
