[NTLK] Advice on recelling an eMate300 battery pack

To save myself the hassle of battery pack major soldering, I picked up a 9.6v rc battery pack containing 8 aa cells and removed 2 cells. I then wrapped it in electrical tape after soldering the connector.  This did the trick and had minimal soldering.  It even contained the polyfuse to protect the pack.  Be sure to check polarity but that's simple if you have a volt meter that measures polarity.

Also the pack was only 10usd and gave me extra cells to recell a second time.

Hope this helps,
