    Hello,

    On the page you gave it says:

    The term polymer in this probably means that a lithium polymer battery is used.
    This can not be replaced by an other type of battery.
    The way of charging for lithium battries differs from NiCd and NiMH.

    For more info take a look at the "batteryuniversity"

    What if I replace it with polymer battery instead? I mean by removing the existing battery and replace with higher capacity. Reason for replacing with higher capacity is that when I opened up the casing to see the built in battery as I suspect the built in battery is not what it claim to be 1350mAH. The size of the built in battery is so tiny (1cmx2.5cm x0.4cm).

    Hello,

    I do not know how "intelligent" the charger is.
    A higher capacity battery will take a longer time to be charged fully.
    I do not know how the charger will react on the larger capacity.

    I am aware that it will take longer time to charge. I just need to increase to larger battery capacity.

    Hello,

    Here is a quote from the battery university about the lithium polymer batteries:



    The battery was probably special made for the charger.
