Radica Battery related problem

Post by joeldiamond » Sat Aug 19, 2006 4:01 pm

I am in the middle of creating a Sega Mega Drive Radica Portable.
I`ve hacked the controller, the screen works, everything is a lot smaller and I removed the battery to make space, as it takes up 50% of the unit with its 4xAA batteries.

Therein lies the problem I don`t want it to be constantly plugged in to play it all the time so does anyone know any other smaller types of batteries that will work and how to connect them and how to get the screen and handheld running off the same battery (Nothing more complicated than using a soldering iron)

I will have pictures of the product (Nicknamed Handihack R16) when its done thanks

Button/watch batteries?
Camera batteries?

There's some camera batteries that are slightly fatter than AA's, about half the height, and 3V. Not sure what the mA/mAH ratings are like though. And they cost a hell of a lot more.
