Is there an extension cable for the battery connection

I use my mi5 as a flight instrument. I want to get a bigger battery directly connected to the motherboard. Xiaomi do have bigger batteries but the connection cable isn't in quite the right place

I want to buy i.e. Mi max battery and buy an extension for the connection.

There's no back on the phone, size not important.

I don't even know what the connection is called.


Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Probably cheaper and easier to just buy a power brick and a USB extension

This is on my paragliding flight deck and unfortunately what happens is the cable breaks, the phone USB breaks or the batteries USB breaks. They've all happen to me before .

I really need it connected at the rear of the phone with an extension or directly to the board.

Thanks though

hmmm, maybe you can make a homemade case with either as 3d printer that could support both? or a bunch of ducttape plastic. ) ziplock container, with a hole cut for the screen, taped to the container, and the battery pack also in the container and all sealed up, idk. best of luck!


Thanks Dan, I've also been down that path before. I really want to do it this way. Cheers
