    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.

    Have you tried switching colors while the blade is out, to see if the connector changes color?

    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.

    Yeah, they do. I’m not particular a fan of where you have things placed within the hilt, but I understand it using the pieces you used. I basically stopped using the 7” main bodies years ago for that...

    We would need to see the saber design and such.Pics would definitely be helpful here. They need to be hosted elsewhere and you post the links here. I have a post about it floating around somewhere.
