I don't think there's enough space under the can. If there had been I doubt 
people would have been using the methods in this thread:

The method in the post above avoids the long wire and unsoldering, but still 
needs insulation above and below.

You can't make or receive the call when the phone isn't registered, and in 
worst case the phone will spend ~1/3 of the time reregistering. Networks seem 
to handle reregistrations differently though - O2 UK sometimes thought the 
phone was switched off when I called it, while Orange and t-mobile always 
connected. This may have been luck though...

It wouldn't help on om2008.x as it isn't using FSO. You should be able to use 
apm or the sysfs battery entry to get similar information though. See:
