    Bump?

    The buying service has not yet disposed of the battery, so it is still on offer if someone has a domestic Japan shipping address at which to receive it. I know we have a few Libretto people...

    Cool 4704 stuff, as a side-note.

    I see the terminal itself is absent, however, so the seller is having issues describing it accurately.
