I was able to make a HP Pre 3 replacement battery with exactly the same specifications as original one.
Original and mine are both using Samsung cell ICP474350N with capacity 1230 to max 1250 mAh

I have also checked other suitable batteries from Chinese manufacturers to get a better price, and they are offering about 1100mAh for the same size.

I have made a few samples for me and my friends. A few with Samsung ICP474350N and a few with Chinese cells and all are working great.

I am planning to make more with Samsung cells for one of our customer & I wonder are any of you guys interested in buying them. I can sell them for about 20 (26 US$) with included sending by unregistered snail mail. I think sending from EU to any EU country or even worldwide wouldn't be very expensive even if sending by registered (signed for) snail mail, i need to check for that first.

Here are some pictures of original and replacement (copy) HP Pre 3 batteries. I have marked original / copy on the photos. Photo of the battery showing Samsung cell is original one, I will upload some more pictures of replacement ones in the following days.

Now I am just waiting for Samsung cells to be available from distributor.

If all will be as planned I will be able to offer 2 batteries with postage included (signed for - registered mail) for less than 30 , this offer will be valid for forum members only.

This is great, but what would really be useful is an external battery charger for these batteries.

I also know that HTC HD2 uses the same cell as the Pre3 and it can be found for around $4 from china. I built once a battery for my outdated GPS and it was successfull. I wonder where Sumy got his battery housings because I was thinking on buying an HTC HD2 battery then put it into a housing that can fit into Pre 3. I know I can buy it for around $35 but would like to do thisby myself and I hope anyone can help.

Don't forget that Mugen do both a 1400 and a 2800 (with replacement back) as well so it's not like Pre3 replacement batteries are hard to find. It's one of the few spare parts we don't have a problem with.
