Biggest Battery for the Maestro?

I'm still looking for the biggest battery that can fit inside the Maestro battery compartment. The Mogix and the Polanfo fit nicely but don't utilize all of the compartment. I thought that the Puridea S3 was the answer but its thickness doesn't quite make it leaving the battery door slightly bulging even after removing the vinyl dot in the base of the compartment. Of course any battery must leave room to put the USB connector on.

Any other battery experiences?

We don't recommend filling the entire compartment with a battery bank.  Having some clearance helps with heat dissipation, even with the vented cover in place.  The key spec you need to look for is the mAh rating, not the physical size of the battery.

Agreed, I installed a 128800mAh battery pack that gives as much time as I need to run. I haven't used it long enough to discharge because if I'm near an outlet I plug in, I bought two extra adapters to make sure I have one with me all the time.

My door however is curved so both edges protrude looking low quality but I think I can fix that.
