One of the most welcome updates that the Nokia N95 8GB features over the Nokia N95 is the larger, higher-capacity battery. All that techno-gadgetry packed into the Nokia N95 made the poor little thing die off too quickly, so Nokia decided to bump up the juice-holding capacity of the Nokia N95 8GB – the BL-6F battery rocks a 1200mAh battery.
Unfortunately, the new battery is not intended for the Nokia N95 and doesn’t fit in the battery compartment. Well, I should say that the Nokia N95 8GB’s BL-6F battery doesn’t fit in the Nokia N95 without modification.
An enterprising handset-modder has decided to put the larger capacity battery intended for a Nokia N95 8GB into his Nokia N95.
“I am using the BL-6F in my N95-1. I just sanded the out of the battery cover and then sanded the battery itself, especially the plastic moldings on the ends. I had to wrap the battery with a layer of packing tape. It is surprisingly well fitting. I did buy a BL-6F from eBay and a replacement casing in case it got screwed up.”
After a bit of shaving and sanding, Momofseven is enjoying the OEM-looking benefits of the BL-6F battery in a Nokia N95.
