Remove the dead battery pack by desoldering the black and red power wires from the negative and positive terminals (respectively). Don't just throw these dead batteries in your household trash. Locate an eco-friendly disposal site for dumping these dead cells. Local RadioShack stores and Lowe's Home Centers occasionally reclaim dead batteries.
