    Here's a (tested and functional) diagram using the Adafruit item linked in this thread. It lets me charge the internal battery with any 5v mini-USB source (they also make a microUSB version).

    If you had a "DPST" switch (Dual Pole, Single Throw - which is essentially two switches with one toggle arm) you could still keep your two circuits isolated.

    Does light work that way: 1600 lumens from each die, so 3200 from two dice, 4800 from three dice?
    If so, two is twice as bright as one, and three is 1.5x as bright as two, four is 1.33x as three...

    Grind out the 4-way so that the main hilt tube extends all the way through it. Then you only need little holes for the wires to get to the cross-guard LEDs.

    The cool factor on this idea is through the roof. The people in this hobby do stuff that's cool, just for the sake of it being cool. In my opinion, if TCSS had a product of this type with a sub-$75...
