you might take a look at doing something different..like making a snap-in battery pack that takes AA or AAA or some other commonly available battery.


I think this is a good idea, but in order to be truly practical, it would need to integrate with the 6000 charging circuit, or else one of two annoying things would happen: Either you would need to lug around an external battery charger, or a lot of spare batteries. The 6000 is bulky enough as it is...

If you need 3.7 volts then you will not get 5 Ah you will get 1500 maH or so with two lots of 3 in parallel. I don't think it would be too sucessful at all. Paralleling NiMH isn't a good idea anyway and the power weight ratio is crap comapred to Lithium polymer.

oops. er, yeah more than 1.5 volts is needed.

custom lithium polymer is beginning to show serious problems with lifespan and replaceability. Given that a Z will run for a while off a 9 -volt (with a regulator, etc) surely there is a decent off-the-shelf option? Especially given that the newer Z's don't boot without a battery? It isn't so much that it is a better choice for "new" performance, it is a better choice for the longevity of the device, given the expense, obscurity, and mortality of appropritate lithium polymer batteries. power for weight means precisely nothing when comparing easily available (if heavy)power to a dead and irreplaceable (though light) custom battery.

If marc can deliver lithium polymers at a good price and a steady supply, that would be nice, but I'm afraid that we are going to be faced with a limited run and the same problem down the road.

I have had a standing order on Amazon for a 6000L battery, just inc ase they had any come in.

I received a notice a few minutes ago that the order has been filled! According to Amazon, they have two in stock at about $75.

Amazon Link to 6000L batteries

There are also two used ones listed for $59.

Good luck!

I still think that using those cheap Nokia LI-ION BL5C batteries is the best way to go. . .

no, he's referring to the idea of taking Nokia-compatible batteries and converting them to 6000 ones, like some guy here is doing for 7xx/8xx/1000/3xxx.
