    T3 battery... I put (inside) a 1700 mAh! It rocks!!!


    Hi guys!

    I bought an almost new T3, but come on... the 900 mAh it has it is terrible!!! It lasts just few hours. The available 'Palm To Go' it is fine...but still just an annoying add-on.... and so the external batteries...

    I browse the WHOLE internet and found no idea.

    But hear what I have discovered!!!! :-D

    You can fit 2 batteries in parallel fo the Palm m500 (that are very cheap in Ebay). They are 850mAh each, 3,7 volts, and they have a protection circuit each. Just join the red cables, and the black ones, using the dungle of the original battery of the Tungsten T3. Doing so you will have a very thin 1700mAh battery!!
    It is no invention at all, See some batteries for Tungsten C, sometimes is made using two batteries like this. (and they are 1700 mAh)

    The next operations are very easy.
    You should modify a bit the inside (just because you need 3-4 mmm more). I got shorter the Palm pen canal 35 mm, so the pen should also be cut. It will be held by creating a small knob with a knife and some glue (it is easy and works).
    I also added some cm of wire for the wiring.

    Then you close the Tungsten!! And it works FANTASTICALLY!!!
    It lasts ages!! It ROCKS!!!

    And I am quite sure that exists for Palm m500-m515 ecc. some 1000 mAh batteries so everything can be even better. reaching 2000mAh
    It is like having an Ipod...

    And aesthetically and functionally is perfect. Even the weight is more or less the same.

    It seems to me that the only reason they put such an awful battery of 900mAh it is that they wanted to insert that stylish pen... Shorted with the same telescopic system it is even better.

    I am sorry I had no camera to document what I have done, because it is really INCREDIBLE!!

    But I have done a little video 7 MB

    here you can watch... [​IMG]

    Hope you will find it useful.

    In this site I learned a lot, that's why I am sharing this with you.

    I wish you the best.

    Where to get the batteries... HERE!



    I wish advise everybody where to get those batteries cheap and of good quality. There are many selling them on Ebay.com but this one is FANTASTIC! I bought from her 5 times and and I was always VERY SATISFIED.
    You can buy each battery for 4.99$ US dollars
    and shipping expenses are the same (8 $) if you order more than one battery. So you can do this mod for your TUNGSTEN for 18 $ alltogether (it's 13 EUR). NOTHING.

    the link it's this one
    http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQfgtpZ1QQfrppZ25QQsassZjbrew52

    batteries she sells are new and recently made.

    As soon as I get a camera I will add the pictures...

    I am very happy with my mod...

    That's great!

    But the proof is in the pudding. You have to benchmark the new battery first.

    Get batterytime184, turn off BT and IR, set the brightness all the way down. Fully charge it.

    A T3 with stock battery will do about 4.5 hours.

    Please post your results here! Very interesting...

    Interesting indeed! We need test results.
    There are some 1000 mAh cells for the m500 series. I may consider it but how can one tell if it's a true rating? The 850 mAh are considered 'real' from others experiences.

    The mod is an excellent idea but I think I heard a little pitch in there. :D

    Welcome to Brighthand!

    First data....

    I have been listening for 4 hours (exactly) with maximum volume my mp3 collection and the level says 93% of power left

    :)

    But I have to check watching movies-.

    I guess this mod almost DOUBLES the original capacity...

    Palm m515 has the same batteries (850mAh) with color screen... so the batteries are great.

    The fact is those batteries are Li - polymer and so they can be smaller than the original ones (Li -ion). Different tecnology.

    Have fun.

    If some of you find it useful the original tungsten T3 battery (900 mAh) have these measures:
    54 mm X 34 mm X 6 mm

    The Palm m500-m515-m505 850mAh are (just the cells):

    55mm X 34mm X 3-4 mm

    but considering the protection circuit in front (and that can be moved a bit)

    63 mm X 34mm X 3-4 mm,
