    I think any electronics repair shop can help you out. Basically the cells are in series then connected in parallel in this type of battery (from my knowledge). You just need a local electronics repair man to help you out !

    I will ask someone here in Romania soon to do this mod for me when my 1st battery will "die". I plan on using 2 x 2700 or 2800 mAh batteries strapped on the sides.

    Until I need this mod I sadly can't help ... I have two original batteries and I'm planning on buying another two original ones in the near future but when my 1st one dies I will look into this mod.

    David, I didn't do this yet, but am going to it when the battery goes.

    ola amigo soy de colombia el único consejo que te doy es que no hagas la soldadura directamente en esa placa por que te da problemas almonento de reiniciar la batería para que otra ves quede en 100% cuando se te descargue...

    Did this hack a while ago. Now I can use 17 euro batteries from hobbyking in my Phantom 2. Flight time is 18 minutes. Happy days!

    One of the best guides ever, it is in russian (or something similar :p) BUT with subtitles.



    It is great and explains in detail all the internals and connections of the battery.
