Hello all, I just lasercut a couple of batterie adapters witch fits for my phone. Solid frame to generate a tight fit! Works well but not original and therefore no warranty from my side.

If somebody is interested to get a fully functional FP1 battery replacement let me know. I can send one to you for 38Eur excl. shipping.
