    Good tutorial. I'll just add a couple of things for flat-tops:

    1. Save the plastic insulation ring from the positive end of the battery, assuming it's not damaged. You can re-use it. Otherwise, you'll have to get a replacement ring.

    2. If you're using a blow-dryer, you'll have to hold the plastic ring down with a finger, until the positive end starts to shrink (so do the positive end first). Otherwise, the ring will blow out of the tube, and you might have to use another wrapper and do it all over again.
