What a messed up design! I'm not a battery expert, but putting holes in batteries doesn't seem like a terribly good idea.
I recently watched a tutorial on how to replace the battery in a game boy cartridge. This remote literally uses the same design

(start at 4:00)

Little hard, but managable. Now, I will just need new battery and somehow put this all together again
I'm not sure how you went about separating the bottom, but a little razor blade and some persistence and care are all that's needed.

yes, it's the same design, and I use instead of razor blade, little screwdriver and did it just like in the video
