As one who spent many of my formative years building models, here's
my two cents:

I'd say go for it. It's likely to give you the most durable bond.
One caveat, be careful it doesn't warp or melt the plastic. The
battery is a pretty tight fit and it doesn't take much to totally
screw it up. I'd test a dollop of glue on the inside of the plastic
and make sure there are no ill effects before continuing.
