I had the modify the backplate with a dremel tool so that I could fit the battery in. I removed the piece of plastic around the red box.

I had to extend the 3 black wires so that I could bend the wires back just a little further, so I combined the 3 black wires together to a thicker wire (thats all I had at the moment). Then soldered it on the board where the 3 wires was soldered at.

I will add double sided adhesive or velcro to the battery and the backplate.

I know its a little thick. I would like to slim it down sometime in the future once I upgrade to a bigger screen. I know its not perfect but it works for now.
