I used to fly remote control airplanes and there are lithium polymer batteries available for fairly cheap now. They make them in packs - 3 or 4 in series. a series of three is 11.1v and a series of 4 is 14.8v. Now if we take (4) 2000 mah packs, place them in parallel, I would that that would give you some serious play time.

It is much cheaper to buy 4 small ones and put them in series than it is to but one big pack, from what I can tell.
They do take a special charger, but you can buy them off that site for 2-3 bucks a piece.
With the combination of a plug-in and battery powered unit, it would make a pretty sweet and versatile unit.
