I've the battery version but I opened it a few months ago. Remove the rubber feet on the bottom. Then very carefully pry the plastic brackets.

Did you manage to open it? Were you able to add a battery to the unit?

..I opened without any problems but in addition to the battery you must also add the battery control circuit. Does anyone know things need to be added?... without schematic diagram is very difficult

I see AXP209 chip in the video, mentioned above here. This is battery charging controller used widely in portable devices. So there should be battery support already on the board. There is also a LaMetric Charging Daemon (can be seen inside firmware file) which should be run automatically at every boot (from /etc/init.d/S03lmchd). What I can not find from video (and also I have not yet opened my own device) is where are battery connections on the board. What I want to do, is to make device powered from uninterrupted power source or add battery inside device. I tried to power it up from different 12V to 5V converters (I have already 12V power system with backup batteries) with enough amperage, but with most of these LaMetric device will not start at all or will go blank while connecting to wifi (measured maximum 0,3A power taken so far). Only original adapter and one USB power bank will work.
