11 March 2013:

I've slightly improved the battery pack.  More Altoids, and more power.  And a power switch now!  Yay!  I managed to stuff the minty boost, a power switch, and four rechargeable batteries into a standard altoids container.  I used two 2xAA batter packs, wired in parallel to achieve the proper voltage.  It's very similar to the last system, but much cleaner looking.  You'll also notice that I have now been tying the battery pack to the Pi case - planning ahead as the battery pack shrinks, as I want to keep the device in as small of a one-piece unit I can manage.
