View Full Version : C battery version, on/off on board

01-02-2016, 05:35 PM
Found a used saber off the bay, and took it apart. Odd that this is a C battery version and the on/off switch is built in to the board. Did a search but didnt find any info on this. How would i wire this thing in to a saber?

Did some testing with jumper wires, this board and parts will work with a 18650 battery at about 3.7 volts, vs the original with 2 C batteries at 3.0V.

And looked at the board a bit more and it looks like I can solder the momentary switch to these 2 joints(Circled in red) and all works. Next on to figuring out how to get the LED in to the mix. Hope this helps someone.

Kidding, this did actually help me a lot, there is quite a few different boards out there. Any luck finishing with this one? I've gotten mine to power blue cree's without a transistor and am working on using this board with a charge port. The charge port has been the challenge! Will post pics when finished.
