I agree with the previous answer of Michael.
just another advice.
if you have other batteries where the plus protection risks to come away, put some protection tape before.
we have some description here:

I had a problem with an epuck the other day:

I was putting the battery on the epuck after a recharge, when the protection in the positive pole of the battery was ripped off. This caused a battery short circuit, noticed by a suddunly increase of the battery's temperature. The epuck seems fine when I inserted another battery.

What I need to know is:

- does the epuck have some kind of protection against this kind of situations? - Is the battery, who suffered the short circuit, "broken"? should I keep using the it? - If I can use the battery again, should I glue the positive pole protection that was ripped off? What kind of glue should I use?

Thanks in advance for any replies
