Can I connect 2 500mA LiPo batteries in parallel to achieve a 1000mA battery pack or am I dealing with an IED.
Assuming both batteries are single cell, i.e. 3.7 volts then you can connect them in parallel for power purposes if they fit. Under no circumstances should you try to charge them in parallel using the internal camera circuitry. You may be able to find an aftermarket higher capacity battery made for the camera but I think you would be pushed to find one with double the capacity, maybe 550 - 600MaH tops.If it fits it will be for an action camera that is charged through the camera port.
Forget it. Get the proper battery for it.If it fits it will be for an action camera that is charged through the camera port.
I note your point. I notice that a lot of these batteries have their own charge protection circuits, would this be a valid protection or would the additional load still affect the camera charge circuit?Forget it. Get the proper battery for it.
If you ever put two or more lipo batteries together, you'll need charge controlling for both of them individually.
The camera assumes you have one battery installed and so will try and charge it depending on what its controller is reading. This could potentially cause one of the batteries to over charge and cause problems.
Either get the original battery or get a USB power pack and use that to power the camera externally.
In addition to the charging hazard that I, and others, have mentioned there is another safety issue you have to consider when swapping batteries about.I cannot find a definitve answer, this is for a Drift Stealth 2 action camera.
