Do you know the dimensions of the GPD WIN battery?
Nope I don't. Searching around the label don't give me any results as well.
P.S Yeah , I dont think anyone believed that 15000mAh battery that guy was referring to
Probably you can cramp 10000 mah in there, with wider battery and removing the fan switch.
Anyway if anyone decided to took the plunge I would like to know. Here're the results from AliExpress, with choice of longer and wider dimensions :https://www.aliexpress.com/w/wholesale-3.7v-10000mah-battery.html
3d print thicker bottom case... transfer over the controls.... install larger battery... call it a day.
There was also a spacer mod someone on the chinese forums did... which would accomplish the same thing... more space for stuff. I actually wouldn't mind if the win was heavier... its very light to me currently.
3D printing won't be that easy. It takes several attempts and would be very costly (both time and money). Yes, the 3D model are probably available out there, but it won't be one time run and you'll have a perfect print.
The results won't be so nice too, if you use PLA printers, it got this kind of grates marking, so it won't blend in to the lower case of the win. I'm also won't be sure if the buttons faceplate could sit on the printed spacer properly either.
Most of the time, the 3D prints are meant to be a master for creating molds. It needed to be retouched afterwards. Not the main product itself. Then it should be created using injected plastic. That's the proper use of 3D printing. Although it's possible to directly use a direct printed product though, but aestethically it's rubbish.
It is interesting to see such extreme mods on such small device though.
