Hey Brando...

How'd you get the top off to remove the stub off the battery?

Stub...? I don't think I removed a stub... I got the whole solar panel/battery pack out from the top, but I didn't take anything off like that. Maybe I should?

This is the tiki in question. I'm guessing it's about 18" tall. It sat out in the sun all day but it seems to have vitually no charge. It may be that I have to wait till dark. Still, no stub. Should there be a stub?

According to the instruction sheet, there is a small stub in the battery compartment that needs to be removed. I still havent't done that yet because I can't get the #^&K'n thing off the top of the head...but I haven't given up...

I would imagine once you get the stupid thing out, the stub would be located right where the batteries make the positive pole connection. That would then need to be removed.

Hmmm... I didn't see a stub, nor did I spend much time looking at the instructions. To get the top off, I just got my nails in under it and pulled up slowly. Don't worry about breaking the top; it's pretty sturdy. Too bad it doesn't seem to get that bright. Oh well, it's fun and cheap!

We definitely don't have a set-up like that up here!

On a slightly unrelated note, I just wanted everyone to see what it looks like in Edmonton today. Look at my poor tiki now! Looks like Wal-Mart jumped the gun a little on rolling out this season's garden supplies...
