How to change the finder 1.0 battery?

Updated by Marina

The Finder uses a CR2032 cell battery. To replace the battery:

  1. Get a small flathead screwdriver or similar tool
  2. Find the small notch on the Finder. It's on the top of the plastic on the bee logo side, in the key ring hole.
  3. Use the screwdriver as a lever to pry the top (the side with the logo) off toward you. The inner parts will come out as well.
  4. Carefully remove and replace the battery.
  5. Snap the pieces back together.

Battery Caution

Remove the battery if it is consumed or if the product is to be left unused for a long time.


If you suspect your child has swallowed or inserted a button battery, immediately seek urgent medical assistance. Swallowing may lead to serious injury in as little as 2 hours or death, due to chemical burns and potential perforation of the esophagus.

Examine devices and make sure the battery compartment is correctly secured, e.g. that the screw or other mechanical fastener is tightened. Do not use it if the compartment is not secure. Dispose of used button batteries immediately and safely. Flat batteries can still be dangerous. Tell others about the risk associated with button batteries and how to keep their children safe.

Battery Replacement

This product contains lithium, organic solvent, and other combustible materials. For this reason, improper handling of the battery could lead to distortion, leakage (Leakage is defined as an unintended escape of liquid from a battery), overheating, explosion, or fire and cause human injury or equipment trouble.

Please strictly observe the following safety instructions:

  • Never swallow.
  • Never charge.
  • Never heat.
  • Never expose to open flame.
  • Never disassemble.
  • Never reverse the positive and negative terminals when mounting.
  • Never short-circuit the battery.
  • Never weld the terminal or wire to the body of the battery directly.
  • Never use different batteries together.
  • Never touch the liquid leaked out of the battery.
  • Never bring fire close to the battery.
  • Never keep in touch with the battery.

Please do not dispose of the battery in municipal waste. The battery may be regulated by national or local regulation. Please follow the instructions of proper regulation to recycle or disposal. As electric capacity is left in a discarded battery and it comes into contact with other metals, it could lead to distortion, leakage, overheating, or explosion. Make sure to cover the (+) and (-) terminals with friction tape or some other insulator before disposal.
