Is there any aftermarket hero5 holder that would allow me to use my external battery?

Looking for a solution - I take 8 hour night time lapses using my flexible jaw thing with an external battery (hero 4 silver)  I just got the Hero 5 and if I want to keep the external battery plugged into the port, I can't use the holder that came with the camera.  It there any way I can still do this - like some other after market holder?  Thanks!
