    Soldering is an invaluable skill. You might as well learn. You'll be amazed at how quickly you will get the job done. I'm sure it takes less time than having to tape the battery up.

    The iron gets hot, you place the tip on the solder points and they'll liquify. When you remove the tip they will solidify again. When they're in the liquid state you just remove each part of the battery tab and replace with a new one in the reverse order. I'd buy some some thin guage solder though, just in case.

    You have insufficient posts to view user location.
    If you want hands on learning. Take a summer class on electronics, with a lab if it is offered, at a Junior College for a pass/no pass instead of a grade. Or if your already in college, you can use the credits for transfer or graduation.
