That is a really great idea. A cradle for a laptop battery. I know that apple sells a number of extra batteries to customers. I have never seen someone that had one so I am really unsure how they charge them. I am guessing that people just put them onto the laptop and charge them, then switch and do the same. This does seem tedious and very inconvenient. Especially if you are using one of them at the time.

If you really got that mod off of the ground, I am betting that you could sell the idea to an accessory manufacturer. Maybe Griffin Tech, or Dr. Bott... Or better yet, start selling them yourselves. I am sure there is a market for them.
