I forgot the mini does not have the space for such a big battery. Nevertheless, brilliant mod.
I love the mini form factor, and it feels really good in my palm. I wish we could put a powerful battery inside.
yeah ipod mini have a "mini" space for battery. before i modded ipod. i got my ipod from friend... the original battery almost dead.. i only have 1hour(less) playing time... after that i search battery for ipod mini on my local phone sparepart mart, and i come empty hand, but i find some battery that can fit inside ipod mini... but its only have 200mah... and i only have 4(less)hour, so i give courage too give big battery on ipod.. and put battery externaly, realize inside have plenty room for modification.. so i also change the HDD to CF, coupling caps on LOD and coupling caps on headphone out.. and extra charger module due to slow charging time from internal charging system...
yeah if you want original body but large battery, just open the cf card case... it will give some room for another extra battery, and give a extra 200 mah battery, it will improve your playback time.. don't worry about explosion due to unbalaced charging (200mah bat and original 400mah bat) because battery on pararel position.
