Source: Some dark corner of the 'net where George is able to post.Its just lots of power focused on a small contact area and that causes arcing. For the stock Peko, only two things can be done to minimize it. Either bend the solder lug so that the face of the screw is flat or file the screw head flat/parallel to the battery surface.
Hey Ross, thank george for me will ya. I took a 600 grit paper to the pin, now the black spot is appearing more spread and thinner. Which means I'm getting more contact. Of course 600 made it foggy and need to polish it up with higher grits.Well, straighten it out. Either by bending things, or by re-shaping the head of the contact.

However, the best solution (IMO) is to do the wire mod. George does it like this:
It allows the button to travel straight up and down instead the arc that the mechanical arm forces it through.
Thank'eeNeed to get the force under the magnet and depending on how far seated your magnet is... determines what you might have handy to use. If near flush to the bottom of the shell a needle tip forced under the magnet to give it that first little bit of rise works for me. Just a little bit might be all that is needed to use magnetic attraction to pull it straight out the rest of the way. If it's still too tight you should now be able to slip a small flathead screwdriver under the edge and leverage it up further. Getting that first little bit of lift without chewing things up is the hardest part.
You can get one of those curved (dental) picks from the Dollar Tree store in a kit that comes with a dental mirror, some tweezers, the pick, etc. cheap. If you don't have a Dollar Tree then probably even Walmart or Walgreens. Dental.Thank'ee
Justin@livewire suggested a curved pick to pry it out with. So now to find one of those.
Was hoping for some neat trick, something along the lines of heating it so it expands, or.
Wish me luck
