Arduino Onboard Battery

Hello I'm relatively new to the Arduino world and I recently bought a Arduino UNO. I want to be able to use it without having to connect it to my PC and after doing some research I found this: http://www.pololu.com/product/798

I just have one question, can I mount this directly onto my Arduino board? No need for additional wires or a circuit board...?

One of my goals for a future project is keeping things small and compact on the Arduino and I figured that this was small enough!

Thanks. :)

No you need wires to connect it up.

What kind of wires would I need to purchase? And after doing so, is there a way that I can stick it to the board :D?

Otherwise, could you suggest a similar product that might do the trick.

Normal connecting wire, 22 gauge insulated.

Get some 0.1 inch pin headers and solder the wires to them and push them into the board. Yes you could then glue the board with a double sided foam pad if you want.

VerFloe: Otherwise, could you suggest a similar product that might do the trick.

That sounds neat. I'm guessing that the foam is to prevent the heat from burning the Arduino. Would something like this work: http://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinfo/installation-supplies/3m-ftp-double-sided-foam-pad/59/362/?

No it is just to stick them together.

Yes that would be fine.
