Can anyone tell me what type and size etc the four screws on the bottom of the Apache charging cradle are? One of the six sprung pins on the cradle has stuck down and, as a result, the spare battery charging feature has stopped working. I'm guessing I need to disassemble the cradle to free it. Any non-invasive ideas also would be welcome.

The screws are micro-TORX. You can find a driver at Sears. Red handle with multiple bits.

You might want to just try daubing a little bit of contact cleaner or alcohol Kor even WD40) onto the stuck springy-pin. That and a little jiggling might free it up enough to work.

I recently rescued a malfunctioning after-market wireless Xbox controller with a few drops of WD40 worked into the joystick micro-pots.
