As I mentioned, here goes the picture I have. This image is based on actual scanned images from actual components and they are all in the same scale (proportional).
Unfortunately I did not find the original text I wrote at the time I mentioned these first. But there's no much mystery:
1 - empty battery holder (HP82143, Topcats, HPIL tape driver, etc.)
2 - original battery assembly (outside the battery holder)
3 - complete battery pack rebuilt with rechargeable NiMH cells from Motorolla battery pack (cel phone)
4 - "lone" NiMH cell from a pack of five
5 - four NiCad cells from another Motorolla battery pack
6 - original Motorolla battery pack
7 - same pack mentioned above without cover
I added some extra information to the original post at the time I wrote it (it's necessary to search the Forum Archives to find it) but they refer mostly to battery size and capacity. As mentioned by David Smith and Raymond del Tondo (these guys know what they say, believe me!) it's necessary to keep in mind that other possibilities exist and batteries with too high capacity demand longer (somehow longer...) charge time.
I think the image helps giving an idea about what can be done. If not, I'll dig Forum Archives and try to find the original post, O.K.?
