    I don't have the tools and skill set to replace the battery in my ONN Tablet-I saw where someone just added an external battery taped it to his tablet and plugged it into the USB. What do you think? Is the external battery the way to go?

    That's a good option when replacing the internal battery isn't practical, just be sure to buy an external battery that's not too bulky but still can provide enough power for a tablet. It's not going to 'damage' your tablet, but it's still a bit of a kluge.
    But how old is your ONN tablet? Instead of spending money on extending its usage life, would putting that money towards buying a new tablet be more economical in the long-term?

    Yeh, a power-bank taped to the back of the tablet and plugged in the USB could work.

    But be aware if the old internal battery starts swelling and puffing up, it might split the tablet, and can be very dangerous.
