I am all for fixing stuff if it's broken rather than throwing it away. Only today I have just opened up a battery pack for a laptop where the battery was not holding a charge and replaced the 3.7V cells inside. I did break a few of the clips to get the thing opened as the manufacture decided to clip it together rather than hold it together with screws, but I saved myself about £40 off the price of an original battery, so it was worth the 45 minute it took me to do and a bit of hot glue will seal it back up.
