I've sold at least 10, maybe 15 or so on Ebay with no complaints, only positive feedback:

The issue: the IIgs ROM 1 uses a soldered lead lithium battery. Why, Apple?! 

 

This kit lets you clip the battery leads, press on two very tight fitting wires that won't slip off or short other things like alligator clips would, and the other end press fits onto a PRAM type 3.3V lithium battery holder you can mount where you like. Zip tie to power cable, tape, etc.

 

Lithium also probably won't leak ever, unlike those AA kits that are also much larger.

 

 

So:

No desoldering

No leaking

No potential shorts

No soldering

Mount where you like

 

I did this to solve all the things I didn't like, so, I'm not just the inventor, I'm a user. :)

That's a pretty good solution!  I'd grab one, but I just changed the battery in my IIgs, so I'm good for a while.

PM me I can knock a little off vs. paying the Ebay fees or if you just want the wires and socket you can get the battery when needed down the road. Sorry you had to unsolder/solder yours...I was too late! ;)
