anyone know of any 3.6v batteries that are compatible with the wallstreet other than the stock battery? i'm about to tear apart my powerbook to replace the battery and to resolder the sound card all at once, but i've been considering relocating the clock battery for weeks and can't find anything that looks good. my original idea was to make an extension cable attached to the pmu that the battery would comply plug in to so it could be placed somewhere where i could easily get to it (like under the hard drive). as of this week, i've been wondering if there's a smaller battery with the same connector and voltage so that i could put it somewhere where heat could be less of a problem such as under the modem card or somewhere else i can cram it. the lombard/pismo batteries seem to have the same connector, but i have no idea as to their voltage since i can't find any information regarding it. any ideas/suggestions/information?

alright, what kind of connect

alright, what kind of connector is the clock battery specifically? in order to put a new battery under the hard drive where i think it'll fit best, i need to make a connector extension so that i can just unplug the battery if i have to remove it or the palmrest.
