Default A battery Life mod for Nokia Phones

In case your phone uses a BL 5C/BL 5CA battery , check this out
MetkuMods - Because you love your hardware!

Apparently with some jugaad you can fit the bigger capacity BL 6C instead ( 1070 mAh instead of the 5C's 850 )

tried it on my 2310. had to peel away the grey sticker and file off some plastic as shown in the guide , but it works

I know that the 2310 has stellar battery life, buts whats wrong with wanting more
will post at the end of the week how long it lasted. not sure if its an original battery that i got though :(

Filing the plastic is not a job for the weak hearted. So, they're warned!

I'm curious if this mod will make the battery fit inside a 6230 varieties. They have very less real estate behind their backs.

I suppose it should. even in my 2310 (I'm using a 1110 skin - for the superb keypad) , there wasn't much space. that's why i had to peel off the entire grey sticker which covers the battery(thats not mentioned in the site) . how its just an exposed metal can in a plastic frame , but it fits !

i used a shaving razor to cut off the extra plastic, but yes, you gotta be very careful.

And welcome back to tvm

Nice tip, I have an old reliance mobile which has bl5c battery and this phone is mostly off due to me being lazy to charge it everyday, I'll definitely mod it to fit bl6c when I buy new battery for it.

It reminds me of a small mod I did to my TV remote using a samsung N191 (again reliance phone LOL) battery. Even wrote a smallish article about it on my blog:

Ironic. Because one of the easiest and best mods you can make to improve battery life is to buy a new original battery
