Install higher mAh battery in G6?

2020-01-21, 14:28 PM

My only real complaint with my G6 is battery life, and since it won't be a problem opening the G6 and accessing the battery (I'm good a this sort of thing), I'm just wondering if there's a higher mAh battery available that will physically fit the G6 and that would be compatible overall. Has anyone here done this? Or are batteries with higher mAh inherently physically larger?

Generally, yes.

 

If you buy a  non-OEM battery on sites like eBay with a higher claimed capacity rating and same physical size, then chances are very high that the actual capacity will be less than an OEM battery. (Ask me how I know ;) )

You're probably right, and I'm guessing your response is from personal experience. :)
