I made a replica of the Apple battery adapter to add a battery sockets to replace the soldered batteries. I'll post the parts list here as well. Here are some pics of the board:







Reference to the board from an Apple dev manual:



I have a couple boards left if anyone is interested in a bare board send me a PM.

That's awesome! I didn't even know there were official boards made for that. I just did the ghetto thing with my IIx and II, and soldered battery holders directly, which don't really fit, but if you're careful work well enough. :)
I'd be interested in 1 or 2, if you've got spares.
