Options for batteries>2500mAh without sacrificing cartridge slot?

Post by nwycoff37 » Tue Apr 03, 2018 2:20 pm

Just wanted some advice on any alternate batteries that hold more juice. something around the same physical size as the traditional 2500 mAh battery, because I still want enough room to have an sd cartridge slot reader to functional(which i've has been sacrificed in some builds i saw using batteries > 2500 mAh)

Thanks in advanced.

Perfect timing, I had just posted some links on the discord server for someone asking about batteries. These are my go to batteries, they fit inside the battery compartment with no modification and have good capacities (3500 and 4000 mah)

3500 Mah

4000 Mah

Holy Cow. Those batteries are actually cheaper than the 2500 mAh batteries on adafruit. Once again, thanks a lot!

Do these typically have longer battery life than the 2500 Mah traditionally used? Is hookup identical (outside of case modification)?

yeah, they last about 3-3.5 hours probably, hook up will be identical, with the exception that the adafruit battery comes with a JST connector, while these do not. You can solder a connector yourself, or just solder the wires to whatever power module you are using.
