Has anyone here successfully switched out a save battery on a Genesis or SNES cartridge?

Anybody done this?

Haven't tried it yet but I've got a gamebit ready and waiting for when one of my SNES cartridge fails. I've heard that some carts require a bit of solder and some don't. No idea if that's true - must open a couple of carts to have a look..
