Couldn't find any thread talking about how to open up the enclosure for the battery. Anybody done it that could share the procedure?

As per the video above I really don’t think there’s a way to open it without destroying the case in the process. I have replaced the LiPo packs in a couple of Phantom2 Smart(ish) batteries but with those it’s possible to get the cases apart with the careful use of some plastic spudgers. I think the Anafi cases are thermally welded together.

Proof of concept of what could have been.
I no longer fly this battery, after a drop, and decided to open it up.

Look closely, each side has 3 or 4 tabs, if one is careful it can probably be opened without breaking. I was not as careful because I did not have a guide to follow and wasn't aware of the tab locations.

Pretty good insight. I appreciate it!
