Hello there, is the Trackpad destroyed by misplacing (wrong polarity) the batteries?

Toto1411 - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

I recently found a Magic Trackpad on a junk pile, to find that the batteries are corroded and won’t come out.

I poured a small amount of isopropyl alcohol in the battery cylider, pried with a thin plastic pick and banged it against a table to get out the first battery, but the second one doesn’t want to move.

Any suggestions for how to get it out without destroying the device? The only thing I can think of would be to crazy-glue a thin rod to the top of the battery, maybe pour in some alcohol, and pull/wiggle the battery until it comes out. I’m afraid that any kind of stronger solvent will cause real damage.

The best solvent for leaked alkaline batteries is… tap water!
