I can not remove the battery from the line trimmer.  I have been using this for one year and it works great until now.  Please help.

Here's one thing to try:
1) press the battery toward the trimmer head (same direction as inserting the battery),
2) while holding it in that position, please the release button.

I did a similar test where I pulled the battery in the removal direction, and when I tried to press the button, it was more difficult to get the latch to release.  When you do get it removed, double check the battery terminal lugs as well as the rails for any damage or foreign objects that would cause it to bind up.
