    The force on the wire was so severe it pulled the foil tab from the cell. There is no repairing it..

    Haha i cut it open to see what happened. That's why it looks like that. But that wire can't be poor back on?

    If you look closely at the wire end, you can see the foil tab still soldered to the wire. The foil tab was torn from the pack and it typically cannot be put back once damaged this way.

    Take it to a battery recycling place. Don't throw it in the trash!
