I don’t know about the OMP but the rechargeable pack in the pack in the 1x0 was just 4 NiCad cells held together by two contoured aluminum sheets glued to the cell. The aluminum held down the switch.  A few folks used a piece of stiff paper to accomplish pressing and used rechargeable cells.

Are similar sensors a necessary part of converting the OMP battery tray to a rechargeable unit? What sort of rechargeable cells would be recommended?
