A MacBook laptop battery pack came into my hands. Pretty old stuff from 2006, but Li-po, rated at 60 Wh. Maybe I am about to get a new battery pack. Lacking the laptop for proper charging, I had to teardown the object. Pictures below show the process. It is almost impossible to open it in a way that it can be built back, so I used some brute force here and there to get past some resistance.
