    This thread begins to look like your personal blog. Perhaps nobody comments but a lot of us read in silence. Do continue :)

    Few Flytouch II power consumption observations

    If there's already been similar testing I apologize in advance for spaming. Our FTII has 2x3.7V 3800mAh (I doubt it) Li-Po batteries connected in series making an average 7.4V of voltage output. I've done a little bit of testing regarding current load/consumption and here are my results...

    OMG I think Ive Killed it!!!!

    Jeez! Why would someone solder-bridge an entire connector? o_0 And what would they gain from you returning it with software installed? It pisses me of seeing people being dishonest while selling stuff on ebay. -_-'' Did you manage to solder the chips and is it working or are you simply going...

    Battery upgrade for Flytouch 2

    @cha_indian: Yes I bought a similar pack and disassembled it. But you've got to be REALLY careful while doing that. I'll try to make the mod on Sunday and of course I'll post the result and the modification pictures here. :)

    Battery upgrade for Flytouch 2

    Yes, external battery pack is possible. External charger puts out ~9V output, it doesn't reduce the voltage by itself, charging controller takes care of overcharging. I only noticed 7W while offline, so that's close to 1A, and 12W online + charging. You can buy commercial battery packs or build...

    Battery upgrade for Flytouch 2

    Li-Ion / Li-Po batteries don't have memory effect, they just lose capacity with age and cycles (or like in my case going to hell by getting swollen). I think that tear down instructions have already been posted. Try looking here or in slatedroid forum. Basically you'll need to remove the...

    Battery upgrade for Flytouch 2

    I've got the version without any screws and it's pretty tricky to disassemble. I've broken my touchscreen while opening and had to order another one. I've also disassembled a RC Li-Po battery pack 7.4V 5600mAh and as expected found inside two single cell batteries of 3.7V in series. It's...

    Battery upgrade for Flytouch 2

    There isn't really any space for a larger or any other battery because of the case construction. You'd have to modify the plastic holders inside to gain +1cm in both directions. 7.4V 3800mAh battery is actually large enough. ~28Wh should be enough for at least 6-7 hours of juice according to my...

    Fake battery percentage issue (30% offset)

    I opened the tablet and found that one of my cells is swollen so I guess I'll have to buy na new cell or the whole pack. Does anyone have any other source for our battery except ebay? (it's 40$ there).

    Fake battery percentage issue (30% offset)

    Hi. There were several similar topics but none solved the issue. This is the problem scenario: When I'm on battery power (say ~30%), and plug in the power adapter the battery state will quickly raise to 60%. If I remove the power adapter the battery will again drop ~30% down to ~30%. When...

    Weird battery usage with workaround

    I've also removed all apk's related to phone and can't really tell if it helped or not. Battery life is really bizarre because the first half of the battery drains much more quickly than the second one. The other thing that really pounds me is the standby draining. More precisely battery is...

    Screen failing to wake up from standby

    I'm having issues with the screen failing to wake up from standby. Sometimes it wakes up, and sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't is vibrates normally for a second but stays black, BUT sometimes after 5-10min or so it wakes up normally again. It's really a bizarre behavior. I tried with...
