I have 2 Samsung phone batteries wired together in mine. One is 3100 and one is 2000 so I effectively have a very slim 5100mAh in my unit. I literally just wired it up and am currently charging it so I am not sure how long it will run for yet.



EDIT: Such beautiful. Much cable managed. So Samsung. Wow.
I don't want to be that guy, but have you looked up proper procedure for wiring batteries together ? It can be very dangerous having 2 batteries in parallel that we're properly matched, as current can flow into a lower battery and cycle, potentially causing an explosion.

Yeah, I build batteries frequently. Haven't had any explosions yet, thankfully, but I know there is always that risk. Did have one get warmer than I liked once so I got rid of it (18650 with a bad wrap. I was able to snag one of Dextech's batteries so I'll be using that once it arrives.

I can't find one over 3200 here, but I found this. Might have an appropriate sized one in it.

EDIT
I ordered it so I'll find out in a week
For those wondering this is just 2 18650s. Doesn't hurt to have a spare battery bank though I guess.
