August 18, 2015
When the Chamberlain Whisper Drive Plus unit was installed in our home, apparently whoever installed it put the battery in with the leads facing inward. As a result, I can't seem to get the battery back out. There's a lip on the bottom of the battery portion that makes it difficult to get out. Please help!!

Answer: 
Use a small suction cup on the bottom of the battery to remove it. I had the same problem but the suction cup gave me a handle to move the battery out of the compartment.

Answer: 
I use masking tape and create 'handles' so I can pull out the battery.
In the picture, there are 2 'handles'. I'd imagine duct tape would work too.

I am sure your garage door opener is like mine, and the battery just sits in the unit. It was designed with the wires to be connected with the terminal ends to be exposed when you open the cover plate over the battery, so if the factory or another person put the battery in the opposite direction, it should just pull out.

I am sure your garage door opener is like mine, and the battery just sits in the unit. It was designed with the wires to be connected with the terminal ends to be exposed when you open the cover plate over the battery, so if the factory or another person put the battery in the opposite direction, it should just pull out. The battery is pretty heavy so you might have to gently pry it out if the wires are wedging it into the battery compartment, but it should come out. To prevent any accidental ground connection during this process, I would recommend you disconnect the 110ac plug until you have completed the battery swap. Read Less

Answer: 
I discovered the same problem and I used sticky duct tape which was strong enough to allow me to pull the battery out of the compartment. I think my installer put the battery in backwards to get a future service call but this idea with the duct tape worked perfictly good luck.

Are instructions available/needed for installing as a replacement for Chamberlain HD900D Garage Door's OEM battery?
The owner's manual only says to call for service, and the motor unit assembly diagram does not show the battery kit.

Thank you for the responses. The battery installed just fine, and the installation instructions were
included with the battery. Common sense was needed to unplug the unit, etc. Comments by several
grandmothers gave confidence to this 70 year old lady to do the install. Cannot leak money for every little thing that needs to be done in the house. Thank you y'all.

My battery #41B591 (for the two pack) has leads attached to the battery with a special connector to connect to the charging unit, the 475LM. Are the leads supplied with the battery. I see it only has spade connectors on the battery. Or is there a different battery for my unit?

This is the exact replacement needed as the back up battery for our garage door opener. Easy removal and installation! The only disappointment was the one week delay in delivery to my local Home Depot store. I would have thought that it should have arrived sooner. Nevertheless, my Home Depot notified me that it had arrived...by email and by phone. The customer service desk employees were friendly and helpful when I arrived to pick it up. Would I use Home Depot again...you betcha!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works just like the original battery This is the second replacement battery that I've needed in less than 5 years. In general, they don't last particularly long. In that time, I've never needed to use the battery (for door opening) due to power outage, but the security of knowing that the door will still work under those circumstances is reassuring. The battery is a perfect fit, but it isn't cheap either - and no Home Depot store stocks this particular item. You will have to order it, and then wait for its arrival.

Simple to change out and install and working as expected. Just be sure to unplug the garage door opener from its power source before taking the old battery out and replacing the new battery, as you never know about electricity (and better to be safe than 'fried.').

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Concerned about how long it will last I replaced this exact battery about 2 years ago before buying this one. I am unhappy that it lasted such a short time. My concern with this one is the manufacturing date is Dec 2015 and since my last one only lasted 2 years, I was hoping this was had a newer manufacturing date. I will have to see how long this one lasts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Direct replacement for battery The battery in our garage door opener died; replacements are not available in-store, but you could have it sent to the store to avoid shipping charges if you wanted. Our original battery lasted about 7 years, and the price from HD was less than other online stores, so this is a pretty good value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product fine, delivery time rediculous. The battery is an exact replacement for factory installed battery. Second one in 5 yrs. Power goes out in Cypress, Tx often. Thanks Centerpoint!!! Shipping time to store was over a week which is pretty long considering the origin point and destination are both inside the continental U.S.
