Aside from a couple more details I need to take care of, this portable is finally finished!

Image

Image

Image

The black cartridge looks so good with the black portable :D
Image

From left to right: Missing headphone jack (will be put in next weekend), AV out, player 2 port, and DC aux jack
(EDIT: Headphone jack done - sounds great in stereo!)
Image

Image

Image

This is a switching regulator from Dimension Engineering. This combined with an LED mod on the screen and two li-ion batteries running in parallel should finally give me the adequate play time I long for :D
Image

Messy AND color coded.
Image

You know those useless reset buttons from the SNES mini? I used a couple of spare ones I had lying around to give a nice trigger action on the shoulder buttons. I'd equate it with the force needed to pull an XBox trigger.

"Making of" link

Rundown of features: 5" Zenith LCD screen, stereo headphone jack, AV out, player 2 port, rewired cartridge connector, wicked awesome shoulder buttons, two 7.2 v 2400 mAh li-ion batteries wired in parallel, and a DC auxiliary jack (cuts off power from batteries automatically when plug is inserted). Alas, no RGB video. I tried, but to no avail. Perhaps on the next one...

Still needs to be done: figure out how to wire the headphone jack so that the speakers cut off when using headphones (anybody got a diagram or something?) and do a brightness mod. The screen's just a little too dark for my liking. Edit: I figured out how the headphone jack works. Anyone needing this information can find it here.

I've got to say, the ZN-40 enclosure from Polycase.com makes for a mighty fine portable.

VERY nice, man. 8) Great job for a "first" portable, Brian! I'd say this one and Kurt_'s are on par for SNESp of the year so far!

Never played Killer Instinct? It's so... extreme.

I am not selling this one, but I am building another just like it for a very patient person.

Heck yeah. Thats how it's done. Your stuff is great dude. (you used to be Joedog weren't you? How did a name change come around?)

How did you like working with that case? I Love that thing. Have any trouble getting the screen cutout perfect?

Thanks everyone. Yes my screen name used to be joedog86, but I had it changed recently for personal reasons.

I suppose I'm one step closer to "portablizer extraordinaire" now. 8) If I ever got around to finishing all my half-done portables I'd be a legend around here :roll:

Edit: Ack! You added to your post. That case is great and easy to work with. It's slim, yet roomy (if that makes sense). And of course it's always a chore to get square corners and straight edges for the screen.

Seconded, though I'd have to say the kurt_'s is a close second to this, the ability to take it apart without destroying it is always a plus. :wink:

awesome. man I love the reset button idea for l and r I may need to steal that one

your case turned out great too. your skillz(with a z of course) have definitly improved with your portables and this is one of my favorites :)

honestly though the batteries are the one and only thing that look out of place. if there is room and if li-polys were cheaper they would be awesome in this portable.

Hey, likewise for your Super Portendo. That thing is beautiful.

The batteries themselves are held in place with some super duper 3M fastener from RadioShack. It's not like traditional Velcro. It's more like plastic rods with knobs on top that interlock. It's great! When I make a video of this in action, I'll remove the batteries so you can see how they're mounted.

There is a thin space between the boards inside the portable. How thin do li-poly's come?

This one tops mine! I would say CTFan was just being nice, but he bought mine. :P

Li-Po batteries are usually a standard width of 4mm (for the smaller ones) to 9 (for the bigger ones). Mine were around 4-6mm and were 4000 mAh. According to batteryspace.com, their 4400 mAh battery is 5.4 x 67 x 100 mm.

With a few wooden spacers and a ruler, you can find how much spare you have to spare.

It looks like you'll have enough room if you clean up some of those wires, routing them to the edge rather than straight down.
