    Hi Techies.
    Is there a special tool for removing the caps to top up a battery and if so where can I get one? I've always managed using a 50p piece, but the caps on my latest set of batteries seem to have been fitted so tightly and I dont want to strip them.
    Thanks
    Geoff.

    When I had a similar problem a few weeks ago, Terry reccomended gripping the coin with pliers. It worked.

    I think we might have stumbled upon a gap in the market here for some budding entreprenneur.
