For those of us that are planing to not use the original case the physical size of the battery is not that important. As long as the voltage is correct any mA is good. Really big mA numbers would be good for continuous recording...if this will be a future feature.

Question is how will the USB-charging inflict with a LiPo (if the original is not a LiPO)? Im thinking of having a simple connector between the #11 and the battery so I can use my regular LiPo-charger but what will connecting the #11 via USB do to the LiPo?.
They are indeed LIPO.

These #11's are supposed to have a CC/CV charging chip onboard similar
to the MCP73811. Google that number and look at data sheets.

Look at lines 9 & 10 on attached pic

LION is usually metal cased like the batt's in a laptop. Looks like a large
AA battery, round and long.
LIPO are in poly sacks like shown in pics for cam. Flat and wide.
