Re: Has anyone used a Battery Pack for a portable

Yeah, I meant that the built-in regulator might not be enough to power the console. But again, it provides only 5V and you need more than that for the other components It has two 5v 2A and one switchable 9/12V 1A output that are open at once according to reviews. I was more interested in the play a...

Re: Cloning the GameCube component cable

I'll be able to try it this week on a ntsc if I can get through the wiring.

Has anyone used a Battery Pack for a portable

Like the ones that you use to charge cell phones with a 5v regulator built in, has anyone used them in portables? I'm looking into the xtpower 10000mah external battery pack from amazon that has 2x 5V 2A and 1x 9v or 12v 1a or 2a. I was thinking about pulling the 5v lines in parallel to feed the 1.9...

Re: Messed up the wiikey fusion a bit

It does explain it.

If I wanted to run the 3.3 and ground like the picture attached, what am I attaching the 3.3 to the capacitor and the ground to the large pad that the dip switch is connected to in the corner?

Re: Question about Charge and Play Circuit

The adafruit charger only works with one cell. You need to replace the chip that handles the charging to make it work with two cells: http://forums.adafruit.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=34399 Maybe this is the better option: http://www.batteryspace.com/Internal-Smart-Charge-Module-1.2A-for-7.4V-Li-ion-...

can you clean that little line off or is it protruding from within the FPGA itself....

Turns out that was a hair. The FPGA is clean and flat.

Messed up the wiikey fusion a bit

So trying to fix a single pin where one of the traces had been pulled up a bit, I tried to fix it but ending up making it worse. I think I messed up the left four pins off of the connector. Is this salvageable or lost cause? IMG_20150509_124112.jpg IMG_20150509_124041.jpg IMG_20150509_124025.jpg

Question about Charge and Play Circuit

Hi Everyone, My first post was "PM Sent" so hopefully this one will be better than that. I come from the world of diy drones so I know a little bit of lipos, voltage regulators, etc. But this is a whole new world I would like to try. Looks like fun. I have a question in regards to a Lipo play and ch...
