    I'm thinking of removing the disc drive on my 1000 for space to put a custom made lion battery pack. The cell(s) would either a) span across the normal compartment into the ex-disc drive, or b) be entirely in the old drive with the wires going back to the battery compartment, possibly in parallel with the stock battery. So I'm wondering, just how much space the drive assembly takes up, so I know the dimensions of the battery and the component cells I need. (And this is not my first time handling li-ions, for anyone concerned with safety. I know what I'm doing.)
