Tempdrop Battery Replacement Guide

Tempdrop Battery Replacement Guide

Please note: Once the sensor is opened, any stored data will be erased so, be sure to sync before replacing your battery.

Changing the battery will not affect your temp results.

What you need

Battery

Tempdrop uses an inexpensive CR2032 3V lithium coin cell battery. It can be purchased on Amazon or at any store with button-type (watch) batteries. We recommend using a brand name battery where possible. 

Important: Remove any stickers or plastic film from the battery before inserting.

Opening tool

Every Tempdrop ships with a wand to help replace the battery. Alternatively, you can these tools online by searching for "spudger" or "phone opening” tool. (see example below)

Warning: Do not use a metal tool- this can cause damage and void the warranty. Similar plastic implements or fingernails can be used if the recommended wand is not available.

Using the wrong battery type or incorrectly inserting the battery could cause damage and void the warranty. 


 

Instructions

Step 1: Open the sensor and identify your sensor type (there are 3 different types)

Gently use the tool to separate the top shell from the bottom according to the indication arrows. Pry each opening point in order (1,2,3).

You may need to work back and forth between points to fully separate.  

Once open, identify the sensor type and follow the next step to change over the battery and close the sensor.
