Go to your local hardware store and buy a screw extractor kit or a left hand drill bit, they're cheap and easy to use(i'll put an example at the end of the comment) punch the screw um the middle and with the extractor kit(instructions should be included) or with a left hand drill bit just drill ir out, it should come right of, i used the following kit to remove a broken crankshaft pullei bolt with success:
If you have any other questions, ask, im here to help.
I use Grabit for work but these will work as well. You can also get one from any hardware store, lowes/home depot.
I use these things all the time at work and they are very helpful timesavers
You would need what is called an extractor kit, and they go for pretty cheap on amazon.

Looks like Torx but I've never seen it in the wild. An extractor set will take it out but likely kill the screw in the process. Explain to the wife you needed one of these anyway, they're a godsend, especially with automotive. If you want to go the cheap route, find a tiny plane edge screwdriver and file it until it fits.
The last line was confusing.
I'm overseas so I don't really know any place but as somebody who dealt and still deals with fucked up screws, read this.
What kind of device do you have? If the screw is small, then I'd recommend a speedout tool [link]
Or you put a piece of rubber over the head and push down with a screwdriver then unscrew. You wanna keep a constant downward pressure while unscrewing.
If your "device" is big enough to withstand a stronger force and the screw head is big enough, use a Johnson bar.
Lastly, my favorite one, make the screw head a flat head. Make a groove on the head to fit your flat head and that should do the trick.
Or you can say fuck it and drill the crap out of the screw until it's reduced to shavings
Snag this set
Iv used this kit probably a hundred times, never snapped one bit. If it did snap, then you'd hav fresh grade 8 steel to weld on to. In all hon sty, I bought this exact set from walmart for $5.99, if it didn't work I wasn't out any real money. I was pleasantly surprised when it worked the first time, and the many times after that were just icing on the cake
I've seen the rubber band trick on just about every "picture list of life hacks." I've tried it about four times and have never been able to make it work.
In my experience the only things that work are using a dremel to carve out a new groove, getting a pair of pliers and turning the screen or, if you can't get to the screw with pliers, use a screw extractor, like this: [link]
Someone recommended this set to me. Looks like it drills in on one side and extracts with the other.
They make bits that burrow in to stripped screws and pull them out. [link]

Spent my first several weeks working GA as, basically, a panel bitch. Combined with time in the USAF where power tools were not allowed and coin-slot screws were commonplace, I have an extremely well-exercised skillset in removing stuck screws.
Screwgun, using snap-on bit, won't get it out? Use the ratcheting screwdriver with those biting bits - you can get more direct force on it.
Ratcheting screwdriver with biting bit won't get it out? Oh, it's gonna come out, I'm not asking. Get the speed handle with almost-new bit, with a little valve-lapping compound on the tip. Put a lot of pressure downwards towards the screw, and first try the pop method - give the handle some pops. That doesn't work? Grab a rag, fold it up, and use your whole body to put maximum force on that little screw, and slow turn it. If you feel it start to slip? Stop. It's time to stop playing. Get the SpeedOut.
Drill out that head. Flip around, use the right-angle screwdriver (sometimes also called a Yankee, whatever works) to put a lot of pressure and slooooowly bite that sucker into that new hole. Continue with slow, even pressure to get the screw to break. That's not working? Okay, you've got a special snowflake, this fixes 95% of stuck screws.
Left-hand drill bit, waaaaaaaay down deep in the screw, and the pointy-type easy out you usually get from snap-on with the T handle. Drill clean thru the screw if you gotta, get MAXIMUM PENETRATION. Turn that sucker out, slow stead pressure to get it to break.
Still not working? Holy fuck. Use a bigger left-hand drill bit, and use the wrench-type easy out that is usually for bolts. Put some valve lapping compound on there for good measure, just to be sure.
That's not working? Fuck it. It ain't coming out. Drill the whole thing out, you're gonna need to rivet in a new nutplate. If it's not countersunk, drill it out like a rivet. If it is countersunk, well shit. You can try to drill it like a rivet, or you can match the hole and take the nutplate and all with it.
If that somehow fails, you're replacing significant levels of sheetmetal.
Something like this will work way better.
Yeah unfortunately you're either stuck with the old battery or you're going to have to use an extractor or even more severe, just drill them right out.
Not sure how far down that is, but if you have a drill, you can purchase "easy-outs". In order to use one, you take a drill bit slightly smaller than the easy out, drill a hole into the screw you are trying to get out, then use the easy out to extract.
Easy outs are essentially reverse threaded bits that bore into the screw and then, when it reaches the bottom of the hole you pre-drilled, turns the screw out.
A set like this can be found for cheap at your local hardware store
Time to buy a set of EZ out s
SpeedOut Damaged Screw Extractor & Bolt Extractor Set [link]
Designed to run in a drill in reverse. Grabs in and backs it out.
Use the heat gun as suggested, and either this or this from your local big box hardware store.

Speed Out Kit
First, it looks like there is still some teeth left deeper in. Try a screw driver/bit the right size. My guess is that the one you are using is too pointy and is bottoming out.
If that still wont work, there are some other options.
You can also get special bits that bite into stripped screw heads to get them out.
