  1. The first battery you listed isn’t for neopixel....

    The first battery you listed isn’t for neopixel. The second one is. Also 28gauge wiring isn’t recommended as it may not be able to handle the amperage load and may physically fail.

    They may serve different purposes, but the theory is basically the same, a “focused” beam of light.

    And while I don’t discourage people from experimenting, I will state this: “theory” is way...

    Heat is drained directly into the emitter? What kind of LEDs do you think you’re going to be using on this?

    Welcome to the Forums.

    I think your “premise” is wrong. Amongst other things, the heatsink you’d need will block a lot of the light you think you’ll get.

    From what I’ve heard, from those who have seen them, they’re very large. The “tech” they’ve created for them seems cool (if a tad basic). Personally, I’m not real interested, I’ve built more than...

    They're geared towards kids and the casual fan who probably don’t know that this niche hobby is a real thing. TCSS already offers “awesome” stuff, you just need the skill(s) to assemble it.

    You would connect the switch to the yellow JST. The polarity shouldn’t matter, but since you ordered it from Amazon, I can’t guarantee that it will act the way most switches normally would.

    Yes, they should be wired in Parallel. Also 4 AAA’s don’t usually give enough current to feed modern day main LEDs for more than a very little while.
  11. Yes you do.

    Yes you do.

    1. Did you make sure the battery is fully charged?

    2. Please show a close up of the wiring on the board.

    While going “over” the specs that you need doesn’t hurt, the best (and easiest) way to figure out what you need is to do the math yourself. Read this:...

    Well, that should cause any issues at all. It sounds like it might be the wiring form your speakers to the board. I’d check that or the actual speaker itself.

    It all varies on what (or how much) you want to stuff in here, and your skill level. For what you would ultimately want (“basic” saber with sound), it can fit in there pretty easily.

    12.25” is on the higher end of the normal range, but it’s fine. Also, I don’t think you’ll be able to use a box on that 2 or 3” extension you have there. Other than that you should be able to get a...

    The rule of thumb is that both blades to be the same type for dueling (heavy in heavy) or (regular on regular).
