Question for OpenMoko: can we please buy just a battery?

For those with a soldering iron I can recommend mintyboost [1]

Works great here, two AA batteries extend the life of the Neo for about
two hours.

As it is a dumb charger you need to manually activate fast charge,
otherwise the Neo will only pull 100mA.

Make sure you test the output voltage with a voltmeter before connecting
it to the Neo for the first time. Mine gives perfect 5.02V.
