    i found the door to the batter chamber wouldnt close when the label on the battery was folded over the end so had to double this back to get it to close - assuming thats the right way to do it?

    No - you should still be able to close the battery cover with the battery tab sitting down and over the end of the battery.

    Be careful if you bend the battery tab up and back over the upper side of the battery as this may crack and break off the battery tab.

    If then happens then use some adhesive tape to fashion a substitute battery tab so you can still remove the battery.
