    Anyone know if the later G3 models (700, 800) run without the battery attached?

    they should if the power cable is plugged in.

    I don't have one, so i am not 100% sure, but i'll go with a good 95% chance that they do.

    Just tried it [and dropped the battery on my foot in the process] and it works.

    Kingsly, your dedication is duly noted and appreciated. And thank you to both of you, this makes our "project" about eight times easier. :)

    In light of injuries suffered for the benefit of "the project" I herby:
    1) Demand paid sick leave
    B) Demand to know what "the project" is.

    Sorry for not coming back to this thread. The project is on hold for a bit (some laser welding is required on a broken part). I promise to update the thread when it's done, though. ;)
