Hello everyone, I just got my first DR1000S and thinking of buying another one -- since iRex demise, these are all 2nd hand products so I expect to have to replace the batteries at some point. This guide comes in extremely handy (thank you!). One more question regarding this, though:
The battery seems ordinary (simply connected to the device with two wires) therefore I assume there's no complicated control circuitry and all the device knows about the battery status is directly based on its charge/discharge curve. It would also be easy to eliminate some of the plastic internal walls and make room for at least a second identical battery that could be connected in parallel to the original one. It would even make the device a bit more 'solid'. Has anyone tried this?
This could be done very neatly with a couple of JST connectors for a few bucks, so each battery could be replaced independently without cutting and soldering cables every time:
