    There is a place of debate a little about selling sabers with soundfonts created by other people. I tend to hold the belief, if you are selling a saber with someone else's created work, you need to...

    You can always wire the recharge port and just have it floating inside if you wanted it, I personally like removable batteries when possible bc it makes swapping them out fast. Also make sure you...

    It's all preference really, I use lead free in my engineering classes bc they supply it, but I use leaded at home. I feel like I get better heat transfer and solder flow resulting in nice joints...

    Oh for sure, it can depend on the build. Your setup might have been just fine. I just felt looking at the pictures of the saber setup he had, that the end result would not be satisfactory for the...

    It would really aid you to redesign a bit and put the switch somewhere else. I know it throws a link in the plans a bit, but realistically even if you can solve the wiring past the speaker issue,...

    Yes that should be enough, try it and see what happens. It definitely sounds like some kind of auto shut off is happening when the power level peaks.

    So the simplist thing to do is just order a handful of different sized resistors, everything from .5ohm to 2ohm and just test different resistor values until you hit that perfect color. All LEDs are...
