So, received one of Mark's HP35 battery packs today... but I have no idea how to get the battery cover off! I’ve tried sliding it forward and lifting it – it won’t budge and I don’t want to break it by forcing it... any tips? BTW, I can only use one hand... is it a two-handed job?

If it's like the HP 80, slide the two rubber feet on the battery door toward the center. They're actually latches. Should lift off easily once unlatched.

That was it! Thanks, Dave!!! Odd that there's nothing on the battery cover to indicate that...

Yeah, it definitely took me a bit to figure it out too. Smile

It's on page 26 of the manual. Said manual is on the MoHPC USB stick.
