Thanks for the tips. While you folks were typing, I was on the same track.

Here's an old Axim X51v cell double-side stick taped to the back. I snipped off the plastic terminal protection grid and soldered up the +, T, and - pads to red, blue, and black connections on the PCB of the protection circuit on the cell. I cut a slot in the bottom of the back cover to pass the wires.

For some reason, it shows that it's charging but the battery level never does. So I pulled off the Kapton tape and use the charging cradle for the battery instead.
