Stop right there.
"literally" and "legitimately" are useless concepts in this case.
*legal* is the word your looking for.
In EU batteries MUST be separable by the consumer to make the consumer able to sort out different kind of waste when ditching the product, else the product is illegal. It's a shame Apple has been able to circumvent the environment laws with products so far. They tried, and in essence succeeded, with iPhone1, it had soldered battery, they had to change that, iPhone3 and newer has only glued batteries.
