Hi!

Hi Everyone,

Just signed up here, getting back into Amigas after about 15 years since the last one I had when I was a kid (25 now! - big kid ). Saw a non-yellowed Amiga 500+ fully working for a tenner at a boot sale and couldn't resist....
Anyone with advice, mods, hacks, tips will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

A500+ have dangerous battery which can leak but maybe everything will be ok.

I've already got the bits to convert to a lithium button cell for preventative maintenance.
Just diode and holder isn't it?
