    Yeah, so the NiMh phone battery i used cost about $5. Its definitely more than just using some batteries and a diode, but a little more of a drop-in replacement (likely get away without even using a...

    The only duplicates I have really are Apple IIe's and Commodore 64's, because they're like tribbles. It's slow to get your first one, but once you do, they just keep multiplying. :) The exception...
