can you give me an idea of what a fair price would be to fix these little capacitors if that is all that was wrong?

I just answered a similar question -- sounds like you damaged the filter and/or capacitor in the gas gauge circuit on the logic board. Fairly common issue when replacing batteries. These are very very small 01005 packages with tight clearance... It will require specialty equipment to repair. If you don't feel up to it/don't want to invest in the equipment/value the phone a lot, I'm willing to take it and I'm sure Jessa is too.
