Replace battery of UPS2

Unread post by errepunto » Tue Feb 17, 2015 7:56 pm

Hi,

Is it possible to replace the provided 3000mAh battery with something like this 6600mAh Li-Po cell?
http://www.adafruit.com/products/353

I think that both battery packs uses same voltage (3.7V) and JST 2-pin connector.


Thanks

The big battery seems to be okay "Electrically".
But the connector of bundle battery pack in the UPS2 package is
Molex 51021-0200

In order not to bring new topic I will ask here. The question is the same - is it possible to connect a bigger battery with the right connector? From previous answer it is still not clear...
Also, is it possible to use several 3000Mah batteries together?

If the battery peak charge voltage is 4.2Volt, you can use it.
But the battery stacking in parallel connection can NOT be recommended due to the balancing issue.
