    Its a 2 pin connector. I dont know the size but buy a new one and solder it to the wires and it will clip back in like normal.

    Thats for the battery correct? Post a photo of the model number

    Ysa i just google it. There os no information on it. So i couldnt tell you the connector size.
    There is 1 battery for sell on ebay but its pricey and from germey i believe.

    And to be clear this is only damage to the battery and not the board correct?

    The battery itself isnt damaged its just the part where you connect the battery to the circut board, it fell off,if I used electric conducting glue on that part would it give power to the circut board?

    Id solder the battery to the pad. Want it coming lose while playing a game.
    I dont k ow how well conductive glue would hold up. Also i think it would make a short.

    First, please hide your super-large photos in a "spoiler" tag. Just type "[" and then "SPOILER=Large Photo]" before the image, and a closing tag of "[" then "/SPOILER]" after the image. I had to split the tag to avoid this being a spoiler.

    If you ripped that connector off the board, there is likely at least some level of board damage. You could solder the battery directly to the board. I don't recommend conductive glue... too fragile. If you have the ability and the adapter is not damaged, just re-solder the original connector the board.

    Spoiler example.
