How much mAh are you looking for? 3-4k? 4k+?

Hoping for above 2000mah, battery bay is about 50×50mm (maybe a little more) most I can find are too long :(

I used 4 of these http://www.ebay.com/itm/290919846311 along with one of http://www.ebay.com/itm/221512994763. Soldered a jst connector to the protection circuit and put some 66mm pvc heat shrink around the pack. The batteries are about the size of AA batteries, so it just barely fits.

Thought about 14500's as I have used them on lightsaber builds in the past but finding a set from the same batch can be difficult which is why I was looking for a lipo that would fit the bay. I have cut away the terminal holders in the bay now so more room to fit the battery in.

You can fit two samsung 2000mah cell phone batteries in gb battery compartment. It fits just perfectly and gives you 4000mah without wasted space.

How are those 2 wired together? And does the powerboost handle those 2 fine? Looking at the datasheet of the parts on the powerboost they say it can handle 1 cell lipo. Wondering how efficient those are charging?

Purchased the one posted by banjokazooie, not sure it would be safe to use those li-ion cells with the PB would of liked more mah with a single lipo just can't find any better than the one I just purchased.
