I've noticed that the nokia BL-5C Original battery is:
it's a Li-Ion just like the Z battery and has the same nominal tension,
it's nominally 850mA/h,
very light (will not impact much on overall weight),
just slightli thicker then a standard CF,
without the plastic enclosuer it's also about 3 mm longer then a CF.

So overall it should fit in the space left bay the missing MD and add an extra 50% battery life which is not bad.

Next time I open it up I'll check ... I also need to get another BL-5C battery to dismantle out of the plastic casing.

Now some more conciderations:
is it safe to have another Li-Ion in parallel with the standard Z battery ?
will the different capacities of the batteries cause any trouble ?
can the internal charge circuitary handle the 2 batteryes in parallel ?
how long will it take to charge the 2 batteries (currently my C1k charges overnight ... I fear that the night will not be enough for bothe) ?

Any conciderations are wellcome ;-)

I think a separate battery applet that could software control the battery's on/off and charging/not charging status as well as show the current charge level would be ideal if it was possible.

If the battery always delivered power, you couldn't do a nand backup/restore or reset the z by taking out the original battery.
