We've got modders and cable makers.  is anyone a battery maker?  Maybe something like RC batteries stuffed in a ratshack box?

Years & year ago I researched selling rechargeable batteries. To become a legal, AKA store type of, battery resale operation then you must be willing to accept batteries for recycle/disposal.  It didn't say you had to advertise it but had to be willing to do it.  The big kick in the ass was the mercury in batteries and that was before Li-ion.  I don't know if it is still true but it was a deal breaker at the time.  Batteries are a toxic area and I'm pretty sure that EPA laws have tightened up on all of that stuff. So being a "Battery Maker" seems like you either go totally legit in order to cover your ass with environmental laws or stay off the radar and pray that nothing bad comes back to haunt you.

One more reason to support Ron Paul for President! He'd do away with the stupid EPA and their stupid regulations. Cheap batteries for all!

Yeah, I could use an external 12-24v DC battery for my Sax. I can record a whole festival with just 4 sets of 4xAA's for my new LB :) And I can record a whole festy with my Sax w/ just 4 sets of 2x9v's :) Not too shabby IMO. Plus, a single change for each of my M10's and I'm set!

Could one get around it by specifying the LI-Ion battery pack the end user would purchase and install but selling a box that has a charger-indicator-variable voltage output?

So the guy that lives across the street from me is an "importer" from China.  He does manufacturing, design, development, etc.  I told him about how we wanted cheap but good batteries and how there were a lot of chinese options on ebay...  He is going to look into it for us and see if we can get a nice reliable battery...

Here is the link I sent him as an example...  We'll see what he come up with this weekend...

There was some one who constructed an external battery for a Nbox - I was gonna buy one but there wasn't enough interest to meet his minimum order...

The Chinese Li-Ion are a good start...It would be nice to have three-four voltages ranges of 12v-9v-7.2v-6v and maybe a USB 5v slot, accurate charge remaining meter, Over charge-discharge protection. 50WH at minimum.

I'd be happy with just a reliable 12v Li-Ion that incorporated a simple battery gauge.
