    I gues on earth.
    Hey there. So, a battery in my Vita died, so I decided to replace it with much bigger 5000MAh battery. But the problem is, that after replacing the battery, my Vita won't boot anymore.
    The problem probably is, that the 5000MAh battery has only 2 wires. Red and Black. It is missing the white (temperature cable).
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    So, is there any way to go around this? Thank you.

    Solution:
    I just measured the resistance between all 3 wires and found out that between black and white is 10K ohm, so I just added 10K resistor and now it boots.

    Your solution is nice! However, there is no temperature measurement now... is it?

    nope, there isn't. But I guess I don't have to worry about it much. Unless I am really unlucky :P

    Try a battery with three wires instead of just two?

    The OP has a solution, and probably has had one for about 4 months now lol
