    Tim is basically permanently out of soundboards too. MR has stopped selling out returns. That's the story as I've heard it... it's the reason people are srambling to find a solution.

    I don't think batteries and sound is going to happen in the ribbed section. In my Qui-gon-ish one I gave up on the AA's and I had a lot more room.

    Corbin's will have to be in the center so the batteries either have to get smaller or split up. If you're set on AA's then you could split it at 2 below and 2 up in the ribbed section. Since it is rechargables I'd go for 4AAA's.

    Use a lithium Ion and put it and the recharge port in the ribbed section.

    Oops... I guess I fried the Resistor...


    There is no resistance on it. I guess I fused the insides.

    BTW: After inspecting the damage I discovered that there was a cut in the wire from a sharp hole on the hilt, so I was basically recharging the resistor with a dead short just before the battery pack.

    OK, I've got some good news!


    I picked up some plugs at the local Hobby shop. They are for RC planes and cars and such.




    I'm going to install it into the back side of the Activation Box, like so...



    It's a real tight fit, but I think it will work out very well. I can't wait to get started.

    In case you're wondering, they are Futaba "J" plugs.



    While I was there I spotted this little gizmo...



    It's an On/Off Switch, Recharge Port, and Battery Level Indicator all in one! And, other than the crappy switch, I think it will make for an awsome activation Box on my Old School MHS.

    And that's a little door on it to keep crap out of the recharge port.

    Edit: Here's another pic to show the back side and the Door open.

    It's essentially just a glorified version of that other plug, it runs off the same plugs so you only need one charger (or charger adapter).

    It was right in there with the rest of the wiring hardware. Check your local good Hobby Shop, they should have all this stuff.

    Got the Recharge port installed. A bit tricky, but I think it was well worth the effort.
