    Hi guys, i dropped my beloved i stick, and it is totally dead.
    I intend to take it apart and see if there are any lose wires, as soon as i get the right t6 screwdriver.
    if i can get it going again
    Is there anyway i can replace the battery with more mah ? or just a new one?
    As i have had it about seven months and could kill two birds while its apart.
    Thanks for any advice.

    Never seen anyone try. Seven months isn't bad for a $30 battery. Under 30$ now online since the I40 came out.
    Good chance it's the circuit board, then you're stuck with the battery.
    A Holster to keep it in or a silicon sleeve to lessen the shock?

    Seen some one take apart the TC 40w and it's battery is wired in so unless you are good with electrics repair I would just replace the mod and move on after all a battery explosion is not a good thing. But the shock could have broken a solder joint or a chip or the board it's self still maybe best to replace the mod.
