This may sound ridiculous, but how do you pull the battery out of the camera?

I can't get a sufficient grip on the battery to pull with enough force to pull it out. It popped in with such a satisfactory sound....but I don't think I'll ever be able to remove it.

That's not the battery - that's separating the camera from the case.

 

Removing the battery can be a bit tough since it clicks into place. You could try a small suction cup to provide a better grip or CAREFULLY using a pointed object to get it moving.

First I press and release the button.  That generally lets me pull the battery out a little (but not all the way).  If if doesn't, you can shake the camera body, and see if that helps.

 

Then I press/release the button again, and can pull the battery the rest of the way.

 

I think the issue is that the O-ring is tight (which isn't a bad thing, since it keeps water out).  It can be lubricated with bit of silicon lube (after you get the camera open of course).

True - I misunderstood the issue.

 

FWIW, I've never had any issues getting the battery out - once I got the camera out of the shell.

Thanks...I solved the problem by ignoring it. 😉

Once the mounts came in, I installed them, making the point moot.

But boy, oh boy, I hope I never have to take those batteries out!
