RE: Spyrus Battery Replacement

Another suggestion that would not involve repeating the battery removal
process, would be to let the readers sit for 10 minutes with the old
batteries removed before inserting new batteries.  This is inconvenient when
you're only doing one or two units, but if you have many units to service,
you could set up a line of readers (say 5 or 10 at a time) and perform each
step to all the readers, then the next step, etc.   By the time you are
re-installing the battery cover into each reader, which completes the power
circuit, 10 minutes should have passed.
