Need Help Finding Battery For GBPi 3

Post by skorpien » Sat Oct 14, 2017 1:06 am

I'm wondering what the largest capacity LiPo battery I can get that will fit with little to no modification of the Game Boy battery compartment.

The parts list I was following suggested the Adafruit 2500mAh battery, but I was wondering if there were any larger capacity batteries that would also fit?

Hopefully from a North American supplier if possible. In my haste to start this, I ordered a battery on AliExpress that was too long and won't fit without cutting the compartment. I'd rather not have to wait another month if I can avoid it.

This one fits without any mod to the batt compartment.

I saw this topic and was trying to find similar information, but I'd like something that looks a bit nicer (if possible). I've seen Yaya doing a build using a Samsung battery, which has a nice clean look to it. I can't find a local supplier (I'm in the USA), and I'm not sure of the dimensions I have available (and nobody seems to list the battery SIZE on sales).

Does anyone have measurements for the compartment and/or a nice looking battery that would fit?

Thanks!

Give a look at the suppliers website, they shipped the battery for free from UK to France, maybe they ship for almost nothing to USA ?
