After replacing the battery, I have been using my Garmin without the car charger for the first time in a couple of years, I hope this battery outlast the original. The tool kit while helpful left a bit to be desired. The plastic pry tool is very fragile but it did the job, I won't expect it to do many more. The kit would have been a bit more helpful if it included a short stretch of double sided sticky tape, I doubled some scotch tape and that seemed to to the job. All in all I would rate this as a very good purchase and would recommend it to anyone.
The battery came quickly. The tools were helpful. The plastic pry-bar broke as reported by others. Just use a flat jeweler's screwdriver to pry the unit open. The old battery was adhered very tightly. Punctured the battery by accident(sparked). To dispose of it safely just immersed it in a cup of salt water for a day to discharge the battery.
Battery works great. The toolkit that came with it is a must. Found battery replacement video instructions on YouTube.
