aiyaaa that's a great idea.... except i'd have to add back in the
battery-charging circuits i just removed, and it would add quite a bit
to the bom..... and would mean special certifications for shipping
would be needed - testing for batteries: crush, destruction, all great
stuff to watch but ultimately really rather costly.
