Hey all!

I'm very new to modding and only have some basic electronics experience. I am working on gathering parts for my Wii portable build. I did have a PSOne screen that I was going to use for this project, but it doesn't work.
I recently picked up a portable DVD player at the thrift store for $3 that seems to have many of the parts I need. It's a Digital Labs K715 if anyone's wondering. It has a decent 7'' screen, batteries with a protection board, charging port, speakers, volume wheel, headphone jack, A/V input, and it even runs on the correct voltage.

Here's where the questions come up. Would these be things I could actually use, or is this too good to be true? I attached pictures of the internals for reference.
I am also worried about the battery situation. The player was supplied with two LiPo batteries that together put out 7.4v. These are old and seem to have expanded. They're also now only putting out 6.5v. I am not going to use these, but what could I get in exchange? The batteries are connected in series, and there are three wires connecting them with the protection board. I figured there would only be two.

I will be trimming my Wii board, so there will be custom regulators attached. I am also using RVLoader on the Wii. Thanks for the help in advance!

Hi! I am new to modding, but I do have some grasp on what to expect. The screen, battery protection board, and charging port should transfer to a portable quite well as long as you know how to wire up foreign components. The one thing I would say to 100% not use is the batteries built in. I can link below the best 18650 batteries to get in a portable, since I can guarantee that the batteries included in the DVD player will not at all be satisfactory for any portable console. These are the best batteries to get, especially if you use at least 2. https://mabdelectronics.com/collect...-top-rechargeable-batteries/products/samsung-

Looks like the link is broken. Here is a working one.
