    to be honest the first thing you should do to your third party batteries is tape up the top right corner indents to prevent the internal switch getting caught on it. this is what you want to avoid.

    Got a battery stuck on our first location with it weeks ago.

    When I got back and checked the battery compartment I saw the sticker with serial # (strange place for it BM) and also removed it with iso alcohol.

    So far, so good.

    The internal battery detect lever, if it has not broken off already it will be at some point in the near future. It would be useful if BMD release a firmware to switch off the need of battery detection.
