    Hello All,

    I have a 2.0ghz unibody aluminium macbook and i have been trying to find a way to improve the battery past the 3 or 4 hours my current battery delivers. I got to thinking how since I do not use my superdrive it would be the perfect thing to replace it allowing for additional battery cells. I was thinking that If I bought a macbook battery and opened it up to expose the battery cells and place them where the superdrive was could I somehow daisy chain it to the stock battery connector. The plan would be to splice the battery connector cable to allow for 2 connectors one being to the original battery and the other one being run to the superdrive bay where the extra cells would be kept.

    Does this sound like a suicide mission or do you guys have any advice on how to get it to work?

    Thanks for your help

    Sounds like an expensive way to cause a fire or otherwise ruin your computer.
