Just taken receipt of two battborg power adapters in bits! I am going to solder these myself so that I can fit them directly on my Pi3 header. I won't be attaching the battery screw terminals, but will be attaching a pp3 connector directly. This means they fit on my Pi3 easily. I already 'adjusted' one like this - took off the screw terminal.
My queries are twofold...
First, there is a small plastic cover on the smaller of the two parts, below the nut. Do I peel this off before placing the two pieces together?
Second, has anyone soldered these together using the conductive glue? My eyes aren't so good any more so this might be a less painful option.
So far I have a waterproof camera (Pi Zero in a clear plastic box), a lego car with a camera on the front (Pi Zero), an LED strip that crawls along a tube, showing an image as it goes that I can photograph - a bit like the light stick (Pi Zero and customised hat), a large animated paper puppet that moves when I make various gestures at it (Pi2, motor hat, Leap motion detector, desktop Linux box - that was a very silly idea!), at least 5 cameras that take pictures of birds (Pi2/3 and external motion sensor, and broadcast control program), and a touchy touchy music machine (Pi2, copper tape, touch sensor hat) .
None of the above? Put it here! Boop!

Are you able to post a picture to illustrate this plastic cover? I don't think anything needs removing before assembling the parts.
Yeah this could work? I've personally never used conductive glue though. You'll need to make sure the glue is low enough resistance otherwise you might see a voltage drop
