Thread: K2 to MR BOARD?

  1. #1

    Post K2 to MR BOARD?

    I am sure that somewhere in the forums this has been posted SEVERAL TIMES. But if thats true it should probably be stickied any how, and I tried the search engine several times but it seems it can't read things like K2, LUXIII, LUXV, etc. It is abbreviation challenged. So anyway, I wanted to know if someone had information on how to wire a K2 Kit (white, 4AAA battery pack) to a MR Board (Maul Specifically) with the least amount of difference possible from the LUX3 Conversion (as in similar to the wiring of the LUX3 conversion), or if I need a extra part what should I get??? This is for my little brothers lightsaber. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    You don't have to do a darn thing different if you don't care that it's not being maxed. It's hardly brighter that way, but it's not different.

    Otherwise you need to use a relay or something like Erv's extender to get things to the max.

    Honestly it's a waste though... get a Seoul or Cree (maybe even the new tffc K2) and that'll do loads better without needin anything special.

    Thanks Xwing, although its a bit too late as a already purchased the parts, but as I said it's for my little brother so it matters not if it's not as bright, I just remembered actually that the K2's are low voltage like the LUX3's...Doh!

    you'll have to get the board out the plastic casing which, if it's anything like the vader board, will be a little bit of a pain when you try to get the pins out. the mr lux3 conversion tutorial aught to help you.

    I do not have this female connector from the blade, as I have no blade, but I do have the clash sensor. This is what I am talking about...

    Would i be able to just solder wire leads directly from the male plugs in the same order/fashion as the wires coming from the female connector to the blade. What i mean is to create the same wiring pattern directly on the male plug. would that work? And if so what gauge of wire would you guys recommend?

    Here is what I am referring to when i say male plug/connector...

    You can do that. You need to be careful not to get any bridges, but it has been done.

    Alright thanks maul, by bridges you of course mean that the solder on each plug should not touch the solder on the other plugs correct?

    Yup. A solder bridge is when two contact points are bridged with solder. That is very BAD

    I can replace the slide switch with my Push on/off switch correct? And I'm using a K2 so I should get a power Xtender to properly power it off the MR right?
