Thought I would chime in and I am impressed with your mod. I was deep into the RC electric hobby and the nitro. I dud experience the Lipo batteries with Novak brushless systems. As long as you monitor the charging, u should have a long lasting eken m001. An additional mod to the eken M001 should be a battery indicator that either beeps or LED that changes color when charged (done). At least a modified charger or change out the charger altogether?

@metal03326: The battery i have bought is indeed much smaller than the stock one, see the ebay link at the first page of this [email protected]: My eken charges with the original charger, so the blue light will come on when it is charging and will go off when it is fully charged.

Hi All,I'm new to this forum and I expect to receive my M001 somewhere next week. I see a lot of mods where an extra battery is put in parallel with the existing battery. I would expect that people would replace the battery for a more powerfull one. This would reduce all kinds of risks mentioned. Is there a particular reason for not doing this? And which battery (what to buy) could we use?Thanks,Anton

i think you have answered your own question, the problem is that i did not find any 7.4V battery with a balance board and more than 1800 mAh that fits inside of the eken M001....

I will go away for a week and want some extra batterytime for my EKEN.I had problems fitting a extra battery behind the motherboard,resulted in pressure shadows on the display and not optimal function of the buttons.I cut wires abd soldered the leads from the two batteries to the motherboard connector and with the soldering iron cut a window on the back cover,glued batteries and added some silicone.The hinges was vulnerable and glued all togheter and some paint.Works OK,time will show if I have got some more miliamps

So you don't have to even take the old battery out? You just solder the leads from the new battery to the wires coming from the old one? Can I use the eken charger if I have a LiPo battery, or is that what blastex did? I can't tell for sure.
