Whilst looking at alternatives to creating an external battery pack for my SL5500, it occurred to me that the Z battery is basically the same as any number of 3.6v Li-ion mobile phone batteries, which can be picked up dirt cheap from the likes of eBay.

What I'm wondering is if the charging circuit of the Z is going to be stressed by, say, attaching 3 batteries in parallel to the existing one (maybe drilling a small hole in the battery cover to allow connecton to the internal battery connector). Any ideas?

I'd like to sick them along the back of the Z side-by-side, should be good for 3000mAh without adding too much depth to the unit.

Next time you're near a mobile shop, look at Nokia BL-4c or BL-5c batteries

They're 3.7v I think they're about 800MaH? Google it, I can't remember. Entaertainingly, They're about the same size as my 5600's "Fat ass"
