1.  Don't ever do anything with electronics if you don't even own a multimeter
2.  Wires.

1. I failed at this, but it was meant to say "my multimeter leads are too big."
2. Still too big.

.1mm = roughly 1/256"

You might mean 1mm, which is about 1/32"

1mm is still too big. This is a TINY hole. I think a good comparison is if you took speaker wire, unwound it, and took ONE wire. That's about how big the pins that go in to it are.
I'd personally do as Joe suggests

You might be right about that, Joe.

Something tells me that they are big enough to have wires connected to them.  Either that or the iPod was using induction to draw power...

You sure? Let me find my camera.

EDIT -
1. iPod battery, with quarter for size comparison. If you zoom in, you can see the holes for the plug thingies.
2. Test lead, again with quarter.
3. Test lead against iPod battery connector, with heavily distorted quarter for comparison.

I still see wires coming out of the battery...

k, I'll mail it to you and you can cut it open and test it for me. Just make sure it's all connected up when you send it back.

(1:38:40 AM) [x86] dark_drake: you can't, say, cut the wires to test this?
(1:38:58 AM) [x86] Joe: nah
(1:39:03 AM) [x86] Joe: because it'd be a waste of time
(1:39:09 AM) [x86] Joe: if I cut the wires, I can't use it anymore anyhow
I'd personally do as Joe suggests

You might be right about that, Joe.

Did you equip your Soulstone before starting the project?

No, but I'm wearing full chain mail so it's a Faraday cage.

Does anyone remember high school physics?....  A battery only has a "voltage" not an "ampage".  If you put any potential difference across a circuit with basically no resistance the current will be really high. So yes, for instance, directly connecting both ends of a simple "low-voltage" battery together with copper wire is dangerous.

We didn't talk about volts v. amps in physics, I think.

We never talked about that in Physics, but we sure did in Computer Engineering!
And like a fool I believed myself, and thought I was somebody else...

All I remember from an electronics mini-lesson I attended was getting hit in the nose by a flaming IC chip fragment. That was a good day.
