I would like to buy a larger amount of these batt cages, if they are really
MP2k ones. Meanwhile I got about 16 PCB's for the upgrade of the battery
cage, according to my above mentioned web page. If I could get spare batt
cages I could modify them in advance and finally sell them for a good price
to the Newton community. The modified cage might be expensive in comparison
to an accu but one has to bear in mind that refurbishing of the accu pack is
done in 30 seconds w/o skilled work and special tools.
