Specialized Firevalls Battery Rebuild

Greetings!

Is it possible to rebuild the battery for the Specialized Fireball Pro lighting system? Any ideas on how to disassemble the battery?

Thanks!
Don

Don't know about that light specifically, but I had a HID light with a similar battery pack where the case was two halves glued together. I carefully cut through the case around the middle and pulled the halves apart to replaced the NiMH batteries. Put it back together and sealed around the cut with tape. It worked OK for a while but in the end getting new LED lights with Li Ion batteries was a much better solution; brighter, much smaller, ~1/4 the weight, etc... and about 1/3 the price I paid for the HID light 8 years ago.
