The batteries were pretty exposed, lying on the kitchen table with their wires all hanging out. Of course I had to fix that situation. Today, the mailman brought the clear top box I’d been waiting for, which helped to put the batteries into a better home. Happily I managed to find a battery case in the exact same color as the tablet, in spite of the fact that I ordered the two cases, each from a different manufacturer. I thought the photo (top) came out pretty well. The red on the display is reflecting off of my bedroom walls.
