    I really like this one. Good job on your first build. Don't worry about breaking stuff at first. As you get better at cram-fu, you'll learn to judge what you can do and what will fit.

    I'll add this: A lot of this hobby comes down to trying things and seeing how you like it. When it comes to a saber built for your own personal use, (barring any safety issues) if *you* like it then...

    It sounds like the board can't source enough current to drive both the audio amp and the LED. Try wiring the LED through a transistor or a MOSFET instead of direct-driving it with the board. Also...

    Thanks for doing this test. Now I see that as long as I stick to using the 10A 18650 battery that TCSS sells then I know I'll be fine in my NP build if I stick to 26 gauge or thicker since any more...

    Thanks all for the kind words. Like many things on this build, the midsection was trying something for the first time. I'm glad to see it's so well received.
