    The one issue I see off the bat is the tall tactile switch seems to be wired wrong. Both wires need to be on one side of the switch as I recall.

    The board seems to be designed to power that specific led type. I think the diode should work, as long as you donít try to change the power source.

    Yes, you would need a different resistor. Which one depends on where the power is coming from. If itís from a CFX accent pads, then you use 3.3V and 20 mA as your source.

    It doesn’t sound like it, you’re basically exchanging an accent LED for a main LED from the sound of it. Also, there is a key detail missing in item#2, the amperage it needs to run.

    Ah! Thatís not going to work. You will need a 15A 3.7V 18650 battery. I thought we had already covered that, but I guess not.

    Are you sure the blade is pushed down far enough so that the pins on the hilt side are mAking full contact?

    Correct. The CF 9 has a voltage regulator attached to the main LED pads (see manual). Since you only have one LED, you attach it to those pads.

    If you just have the one die, you wonít need a resistor because there is a voltage regulator on the main pads. When calculating the resistor, you always round UP, not down.

    I agree with what RavenXP said. I use 20 gauge for the power and a Neopixel connectors, but I split them off so that there are two pos and neg to the connectors.

    You would use just one of the (+) and (-) wires to the crystal and it should be CFX -> crystal -> blade.

    To answer your other question, yes, just add one pixel.

    From the looks of it, you can wire it in series with your main blade. From the CFX, the wires go to the various ďinĒ ports, and the ďout wiresĒ go to your Neopixel connector in the blade holder.
