I bought the battery that Furan presented as a suitable substitute for the original one. Today I opened my G18A and even though it is larger, it still fits quite well inside (got to move it a little bit to find a good fit).
The replacement battery has two mettalic tabs (one of them fell off :S). The assembled battery has two wires, one red, one black. Can I just snip the wire close to the battery, and solder it to the new one? Which tab goes to which wire? Is it better to cut the excess lead from the battery, to prevent shorting? I know how to assemble and solder, but I need more information.
Can I use the original charger, or should I look for a new one?
