How to stop a dead NBN battery unit beeping every 15 minutes

When the battery backup unit for a NBN Fibre (FTTH) NTD (box on the wall) reaches the end of it's life, it starts to beep every 15 minutes. BEEP BEEP BEEP

These days most people have landlines and most likely any devices plugged into the NTD won't have power to function anyway during a blackout, so you don't really need it and besides we all have mobiles these days.

How do you stop the annoying beeping? 

Just remove the battery from the box. Simple eh?

just open the plastic door on the bigger box (there are two for FTTP, not the one with flashing lights) there's an indent under under the buttons and the lights,
just gently push it towards the the middle
