a proper 2.5" drive adapter should be a full 2.5" board size that slides UNDER the ide drive- not an end adapter- those are for 40-pin 3.5/5.25 drives only

so does the battery just charge without any extra hardware- you just put the ac block external to the unit?

I'd love a dead battery so I could rebuild it and all.
