"Nightmare to change the battery!"
23 October 2015
Another brilliant Lakeland product I thought - until I had to change the battery , a task only achieved by forcing 1 of the little spikes up, pushing the battery out with a screwdriver & bending the spike back down once the new battery was in. The biggest challenge was getting the cover back on. A plastic clip inside will not fit back in place & the cover just won’t go back on so the product is now unusable. As a Lakeland customer of many years I am very disappointed & wish that I had read the reviews before purchasing the Thermospatula as I certainly wouldn't have bothered if I had!
A note from the team
Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry you've had difficulties changing the battery. We'll be in touch to put things right for you. To change batteries pull the section with the on/off button apart from the spatula. Remove the two small screws located on the bottom of the thermometer head with a screwdriver. Open the protective plastic cover.The metal piece on the top of the battery is made of sprung SS. You can push out the battery and replace with the new one. Take off the defective battery and change for a new one. Put back the cover and fix the screws back.
