I've operated my 1701 without the battery for almost 3 years. Didn't care
about it. Wouldn't charge anyway. I always plugged mine in to the wall
through the brick. Never had any problem.

My $0.02 worth: NEC is doing great. My ul is an older model (has the "soft
pack battery) so NEC is sending a prepaid FedEx box for me to ship it to
them. New battery, upgrade, and cash. A triple threat in the PR side.
