What is the mAh of the battery you have? Looking at Amazon, the mini replacements often go to 800 mAh or more, which suggests a bigger volume.
The stock is 600mAh I believe, I bought one that claimed to be 800mAh. Its probably closer to 700-750mAh. The size is the same, it has to be, because the mini is a close fit.

I don't think they are lying. The original iPod battery couldn't have been 300mAh judging from the mini's specs and its much heavier. On a site here: like http://www.ipodjuice.com/ipod-mini-b...it-750-mAh.htm
they have to be truthful, I'm sure that 800mAh batteries using different technology (other than Li-Poly) can be made.
