I only cut in half the positive internal battery wire to solder it on switch and add there only two extra wires for external battery. On the photos there is not the magnets on camera yet, but I am going to add them there on the camera. Magnets are also on external battery and there I ad connector to fit one I aded on camera, so I can not connect the external battery wrong way if I made wiring correctly. Switch in position one means that the internal battery is working, in position two means that external battery can be connected. And yes it also resets internal clock every time the switch position is changed. Connector and switch on camera I aded are hot glued.

What do you people think about my way?
Why can't the 2 battery be wire in Parallel? Leave the internal and solder 2 wires inside and mount the plug so you can just plugin the external battery when needed for longer record time. That way there no switch and no jumper or no mistake made.You won't have to reset the time.
