Re: Li-Ion 18650 power supply and charger + DIY EASY

I got the converter, but no battery tray yet, so I hacked a battery pack I found at a yard sale into a sweet cellphone/portable charger. The stand-offs are cut from a Nintendo DS, there is a washer cut from a soda can because the DS screw head goes right through the hole. The USB ports are from an X...

Li-Ion 18650 power supply and charger + DIY EASY

Want to use 18650 batteries in a project? They are stinking cheap, like $2 or less a cell, they hold tons of power, they have double the voltage of a NiMH or NiCd per cell. Premade: I found this USB boost pack that uses 18650 batteries (also I found quite a few 4 packs of 18650 batteries for around ...

Re: xbox 360 Video Pinout Problem

Sorry to revive an old thread like this, but I was able to cut my own pins for an Xbox360 cable from the metal shield in a Playstation. The very thin one that goes over the controller ports. I used some scissors from the dollar store and they cut just fine. The strip curls up so you must un-wind it,...

Re: Memory Question...

All good information, The board can support up to 8GB. I do believe the chip might be part of the problem. I plan on getting this as soon as I can afford it. I am quite broke. If I wasn't broke you would most likely have seen my NES HTPC with bluetooth NES controller mouse/keypad (it's gonna be awe...

Here is the original NES controller (I tore into it trying to make a native PC controller, maybe 8 years ago or more, before USB was widespread, so I gave up.) http://lh4.ggpht.com/nubie07/SNsxpAEA6DI/AAAAAAAAA6E/M-q6o8O7cSQ/s800/NES%20Wired.JPG Full size: http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/D0x4iR...

to OP: A rubber band is designed to stretch, a drive belt is not supposed to stretch at all, it is supposed to be wedged into the pulleys to a certain amount by the movement of the pulleys themselves. If it works it works, but I agree it isn't right. In the long term you could see problems from the ...
