Thread: Recharge port AND removable batteries..

  1. #1

    Default Recharge port AND removable batteries..

    So... I didn't think as much as i should have and ordered parts for removable 18650's and also got activation box 9 for the recharge port because I like the aesthetics of the box with the kill key. My question is, can I wire the recharge port to the battery holder and still charge the trustfire protected 18650's in hilt as well as in the external charger? The benefit I see is that I can charge in hilt if i don't kill the battery on dueling night and I can carry some spares just in case I do... this is my first lightsaber build and any input would be great.. Thanks in advance!!

    Welcome to the forums.

    18650's as in more than on in the hilt? No. It isn't normally recommended to try to recharge removable batteries within the hilt.

    Theoretically, yes, but there could be some bad consequences down the road. Is it a protected cell at least?

    @ForgetfulJediKnight Yes can you please go into more detail why using a recharge port with one removable 18650 is a bad idea ??

    I have removeable batteries and recharge port in my Kylo Hilts. It works. They are protected circuit.
