You picked the right guy. XD

The newer Nokia batteries are a little odd. . However the past standard batteries are the BL-5C, as seen in the 6230, and the BL-4C slimline, which is a little older.

The 4C is 750, the 5C is 850. I'm going to guess you'd connect them in parallel. . ? Or each with a controller separately? They're 3.7V models, the ones that people hack for the 5500.

I've ordered one of the 3200mAh Universal batteries for my XDA, but I don;t know yet how large they are. Will measure it when it arrives. 2 Nokias fit in the same space as the standard 1620mAh Uni battery, but this thing is designed to be double the power rating, so I'm going to guess at about double the size.

If you can get 3 Nokia batteries in this thing (What about the Second Serial Screen?) then we've got 2550.

still havent seen the pic is it a rectangular battery or is it desined to be integrated with the back plate?, if it isn't rectangular (like the nokias) and instead is designed to seamlessly fit as one peice to the back of the xda then i would have to rule it out

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?

once i have X up and running ill have a look, at the moment i am only getting an hour at a time to fix my PC which is slowing me down but if its seperate then that might be a better route as "IF" we do the folding keyboard then the thinner the battery the better and if its thinner than a nokia then it looks like the one to get, plus we know we will be able to get the batteries for at least 2 years

Nono, It's thicker than a Nokia. About Double the depth I think. Which is Why I said maybe the Standard Nokia's in a 2x2 matrix was probably a better idea. . .?
