    I am doing a project with a 13" MacBook and I need to(if possible) fit a macbook battery(dimensions are 8"×2.75") into a space that is 11"×1.5". The cells in the battery are 3.7v 2500mAh and there are 6 of them. Can I just connect 6 cells that are 3.7v and at least 2500mAh(but a different shape) to the board in the original battery?
    I do not want to create a Lithium battery/MacBook bonfire...:eek:

    Exactly, what is it you are trying to achieve? Are you trying to put the wrong battery into this Macbook?

    No, I'm just trying to get a battery that will work with the macbook that is a different shape(I'm taking the guts out of the macbook and using them for something else). With a PowerBook battery, it has many AA-sized cells that can be easily re-arranged; the macbook has big "pouches", so I need to come up with(maybe AA-sized)cells that will work with the macbook charging circuit.
