battery replacement and relocation are not incompatible, people!
bongMan has stated clearly that he is interested in moving his battery, so let him decide if he wants to. he also has said he doesn't want to buy an expensive replacement. part of the attractiveness of battery relocation is that is a labor intensive mod - but not expensive.
now, as far as the piece pat posted - i generally have a lot of respect for what you have to say, pat, but I would have a difficult time accepting the advice of someone who says DC power is "quite confusing" to them.
