Default Replacement of Tire Pressure Sensors

I have a 2007 Prius and am looking to replace the tires. Do I need to replace the tire sensors as well or will they last a few more years before they start giving me trouble? Are the tire pressure sensor units 'sealed" or can they be taken apart to replace the battery (I have the capability to unsolder them if need be). Any experiences here that might help 'enlighten' me on this issue?

No need to replace the sensors. Just make sure the tire changer does not damage them.
