I'd like to get an SC1 and modify it so that it would hold a MN03 when opened. This way I could remove spare batteries without having to handle the LA and risk dropping it

I've got one as well and it rides in my backpack. Much better way of carrying batteries than the plastic bag that they used to ride in!

On their website SF recommends wrapping MN03 and other similar LA's in material like foam rubber to keep them from rattling. A bit of foam rubber or cotton wadding should do that and keep it from falling out for you. Cheap & easy fix. I looked at mine and can't see an easier way than that. Good luck.

If you have never actually examined one, see if they'll let you open one up before you buy. Bring an MN03 and see how it fits so you'll have a better idea of how you want to keep it from rattling and/or dropping out. They're pretty sturdy and let you safely and conveniently care the 123 cells anyway, but it's always nice to not have to deal with surprises.
