More collie fun

I actually created instrumented li-ion battery for my collie experiments -- from ME45s battery. ME45 is also able to act as convenient voltmeter (unfortunately it needs sim card; if you have old/disabled sim card you don't need... :-). I'll post photos some day, it starts to be quite a mess of wires.

I played a bit with batteries, and found out that collie's battery actually fits into spitz's battery compartment. (Unfortunately it does not work the other way around, due to special piece of plastic. Perhaps I'll just remove it with sharp knife). Normally spitz battery is twice as big, it is 1800mAh part (collie is 950mAh part). spitz is even willing to charge collie's battery, altrough I wonder if that is good idea.
