I just did a quick search for .co.uk sites and found various model shops
but I would need to ask some people who are a bit more familiar with that
scene about the best sites to look at. From the perspective of dimensions,
the depth of the battery appears to be the hardest constraint. The ones I
found are at least 15mm deep.

These are really my main concerns. I wouldn't want to overcharge a battery,
whether it is in the minibook or not.
