    I did some digging around and found that there are some larger batteries available for the iPod classic. I have a 7th Generation iPod classic that has a dead motherboard, I am planning on repairing it myself but as these are a pain to open I want to open the device once and be done with it. Meaning I want to mod it with an IFlash Quad. I saw on iFlash's website a diagram of which batteries fit with each model and case size. I am seeing some things on eBay and Amazon for a 3000Mah battery but I am not sure of the fit of the quality of the battery. I have had a few too many scares with electricity almost starting fires in the past 6 months. Has anyone done these mods with a 7th generation SLIM iPod classic and a flatter 300MAh battery?

    The mAh ratings on replacement batteries are almost always inflated (often by 100-200mAh but sometimes by way more especially if buying from China), you also never know about the quality unless it's from a trusted brand, it probably won't catch fire or explode but sometimes that can happen even with batteries from trusted brands (see: Note 7 fiasco) and these Chinese factories have way worse quality control than a trusted brand so there is always that risk. I personally wouldn't risk it but then I have a bit of a phobia against batteries catching fire or exploding.
    Looks like the original battery is only 580 mAh so how you can fit a 3000 mAh battery in there I am not sure. Unless there is just a lot of empty space? I suppose the SD adapter is slimmer than the 1.8" HDD that is originally in them but still, a 3000 mAh battery is fairly chunky.
