I was hoping FOL or AmigaKit would have posted this, but here is a picture of the new Battery Kits I got last night from Chris. These look great!

They are solder in replacements based on the coin battery hack.

I got one recently but the problem I found is the pins come out very easily if you arent very quick soldering them in - I'f I buy any in future I'll be using my hot glue gun to lock the pins in-place before I attempt to install them.

there are 2 very simple ways to avoid the glue.
One the legs are longer the the motherboard, so once inserted, Just bent the legs a bit outward on the bottom to avoid it sliding
or if the legs are not long enough to bend, just use electrical tape temporarily to hold it it in place.
On my facebook page, I have a photo album where on Saturday, I replaced the battery in a Blizzard PPC card and the legs of the holder where just barely longer than the with of the board. You can see I used electrical tape and just removed it after solder.
