    After having taken everyone's helpful advice, I made a new wiring diagram; this time, with a recharge port and rechargeable 18650 li-ion. Feedback would be greatly appreciated, as always.

    Hey back.
    I've decided to run either AAAs or the 7.4v li-ion, since those packs will fit in my saber just fine without compromising the design. Any idea on about how long AAAs would last me? I'm...
