How can I repair my battery after tearing it from the connector?

I was attempting to remove the battery from my iPhone and foolishly did so without properly reading instructions. I did not remove the one screw you are supposed to remove, and as a result I tore the black strip connecting the battery to the connector. Is there any way this can be fixed? Has anybody else ever experienced this problem?

@rdautomotiverepairs second answer converted to a comment. This is a DIY site, not a link site. If you had a great experience with a good store, make it a comment, not an answer. Your answer should explain how to or at least link to something that will help to repair. Not just a fee-for-service site.

You're better off picking up a new battery. They aren't much. Just remove the screw and carefully remove the connector that is still on there. Install in reverse.

As stated by hectordtruong , there is no need to salvage the old battery. You can support iFixIt and buy a new battery from their web store, or pick one up elsewhere for less than $10. Just make sure to remove the screw that keeps the metal plate of the battery in place.
