    Hey folks,


    So I picked up one of these for £33.30 (I'm British and had a discount code) because I thought for that price, why not?


    Anyway I've been having a bit of a play with it, see if I can squeeze a little more functionality out of it and the first thing I thought was to improve the battery life, which is fairly poor. Unclipped the case and had a look, lo-and-behold the battery is tiny!

    I've done a quick google search of the serial numbers printed on the back of it and from what I can gather it's basically an iPhone 4 battery, albeit most likely just a cheap replacement and not an OEM quality iPhone component.

    Whilst I'm a dab hand at soldering, I don't know a thing about batteries, so all I can gather form this is that it's a 3.7v battery which charges at 4.2v (please correct me if I'm wrong). Since there's so much free space inside the case, I'd like to put in a bigger battery with a higher mAh to increase the battery life of this thing. My question to you guys is how can I find a suitable battery to do this?

    So I've doe a little more research and I'm thinking maybe this will do the trick. Nearly 3 times the capacity, 1100mAh vs 3000. Anyone see any issues with this?

    Do we have an outcome for this? I'd definitely be interested in upgrading the battery, driving me insane having in constantly on charge!

    AFAIK this should work provided the new battery is the same voltage and the tablet can be closed again with it inside.
