    Well in the North American Nintendo website accessory section, they don't have it, the one I found in the Japanese Nintendo website accessory section is only the regular 1500 mah, I assume the ebay one are non genuine.

    The originals are 1500 and 2550; that means that while it may be easy to put in a 2600 (which is likely different just in the marketing), a 3600 (without increasing thickness) is impossible according to the evolution of LiPos since 2013, unless Nintendo seriously cheaped out on the original ones

    You could easily fit a pair of (well matched! and with individual protection circuits) phone batteries in parallel, though, if you don't care about respecting the original form factor...

    Yea I notice about the genuine expanded battery being 2550 mah, I would assume that the 2600 and 3600 mah one have problem done the road, Currently I have no problem with my battery or gamepad, just considering to expand the capacity for longer gameplay time, since certain game would require partial use of the gamepad.

    Nope. :P

    I been using it for months. I put it on my charger when not using it and then play for long hours. I also have a usb wire for it just in case so I can don't have to use the one plugged into my dock. :ninja:
