Two parts
The system consists of two parts: the processor unit (top) and the
controller unit (bottom). To separate the two, in order to change the
controller unit, gently twist the processor and controller units in
opposite directions and pull apart.
To reassemble, hold the controller unit slightly to the left of the final
alignment and twist in a clockwise direction. It will click into place.
There is no need to apply any force to do this!
To attach the coil and transmitting cable
This needs to be pushed into the socket as shown.
Hold with two fingers when pulling it out.
The Magnet
To hold it less firmly against the head, turn it anti-clockwise.
To tighten the hold, turn it clockwise.
Do not change the magnet strength without consulting the clinic.
To change the batteries
Put finger nails in slots at base of the controller unit and pull down
the battery compartment.
After removing sticky label from the battery, leave for one minute
before placing the battery into unit.
Batteries only fit one way, there is no need to force them (top down,
opposite to 3G!). Replace all three at once.
Replace the battery compartment and make sure it clicks into place.
A rechargeable battery pack is also available from Cochlear which fits
into the same compartment.

until it comes off.
To replace it: simply click it back into place.
