Note: This sign is similar to the sign for "LATE" except that "not-yet" places the tongue over the bottom teeth, and uses a slight headshake.
The dominant hand moves backward a couple times swinging at the wrist.
The sign "not-YET" (not yet) generally uses a mouth morpheme to distinguish it from the concept of "late / lateness / to be late." Here is a sentence using "not yet" (not-YET). Note the mouth morpheme: https://youtu.be/8Snr9KjWbWo
The sign for battery has many versions but the choice of the sign ELECTRIC for battery in this particular sentence may be a result of coarticulation since "battery" is following the X-handshape version of the (older / traditional) sign for HEARING-AID.
