Has anyone tried to make a cover for the SL-5500 to old the big battery? Would something like that make any difference?

Does anyone have a dead big battery which could donate for scientific research? wink.gif

I'll post sketches later. smile.gif

Will the 5600 battery even fit inside the 5500? If it does, then it is only a question of fashioning a new hinge for the 5500. I am perplexed why Sharp never bothered to manufacture and sell battery upgrades for the 5500. The unbelievably short battery life of the 5500 has me at my wits ends... I am seriously thinking of going back to Palm because the > $600 for an SL-6000 is out of the question.

If anyone knows if they 5600 battery actually does fit inside the 5600, please post and let us know. I'd go out and find someone to fashion me a new plastic hinge at pretty much any reasonable price.
