Here are two pictures that show how this can be done for the Chinese Pixie. One needs an additional resistor in the range 10 - 51 ohms. If you can fit it, then use the large 51 ohms resistor that come with some of the kits (I think it is meant for a dummy load). I have used 10 ohms in the picture. It replaces the old R3 of 1 k. The diode D3 is not mounted in the holes provided, and instead it is mounted under the PCB with the minus (denoted by the ring) connected to where D3's minus was, and the plus side connected to pin 7 of the LM386.

The minus, indicated by the ring, is to the left in the image
