Would this type of battery work? If so, then could the battery be integrated into where the hinge is? I realize that this is probably not workable, but, cheap batteries, and the possibility of simplifying the system board layout by not putting the battery in the middle of it, ok, to one side.

Mine hasn't arrived yet, but it's separate from the backplate. (A new backplate is supplied as it doesn't fit under the standard one, but the two are not attached.) If you have a Normal Uni battery, it's the same but a few MM deeper. (And Double the capacity.) You'd need at least 3 Nokia's in the PDA to get a worthwhile battery capacity, Four of the Larger Nokia's before you could outrank this battery. Only problem with it of course, is that it's deep. I'll give accurate measurements of mine before I install it.

In terms of the nokia batteries, Since the PocketPenguin has a lrager screen, we could feasibly get four in (3400mAh) by having them in pairs, Oriented the same way as the device, two rows, two columns. . . And we'd still be able to hotswap batteries. However, Four Nokia Batteries can cost up to £100. . (From say. . A nokia shop.) £40 is the cheapest non-Ebay you'll find, Whereas a Jasjar is about £25. http://www.mobilefun.co.uk/product/11055.htm - Wouldn't mind four of THOSE in it, (4000mAh PDA) Hey DB, If we do go down the Nokia route, want to design a 6-Battery external Charging Unit for Nokia BL-5C and compatible Batteries?
