    Currently asking the seller how it works. Does anyone know if this is legit? This seems way easier and cheaper than the other 2 smaller batteries attached to the side mod. For battery mods like these, do they draw power from both batteries at the same time, or does it only switch over to the second battery after the first has been drained?

    This concept has been around for a while but so far, as far as I know, nobody on the site has tried it. So we don't know if it's "legit" or not - after considering weight. My understanding of how it works is it draws from both batteries at the same time, but the report you get is only from the normal battery.
