So I'm turning my old laptop into a dock for my tablet (see Motorola ATRIX), and I need to remove the mobo for space to put different parts in, but the battery connector and charging stuff is part of the mobo. Would it be possible to make/find and use some sort of circuit to receive power from the power port and be able to charge the battery and run 5v USB power off of it? I'd consider cutting the mobo between where I _think_ the battery charger stuff is and where the everything-else stuff is, but if I screw up I have to buy a new mobo and money is kind of tight right now.
