Service converting G6 transmitter to restart with user-replaceable battery

I saw an article suggesting that there are folks who modify the 8Hxxxx and newer
transmitters, giving them user-replaceable batteries, and enabling them to again send raw data for xdrip+, and enabling them to run extended sensor sessions without restarting the sensors.

I have no information about whether these modified transmitters are actually good. Certainly one could get in trouble by running a transmitter or sensor beyond the time it is guaranteed by the manufacturer to be safe.

Interesting. May give it a try once there are more details on availability, assuming I still have my old dead transmitters.

In US, only 80, early 81 transmitters could be reset. They mention 8G (firefly). If I recall, 8G could run until battery died, if used with xDrip, but not days reset.
