Also if i wanted to mount a switch on the bottom of my motherboard how big of a switch should i get?
You can buy the connectors from radio shack (labeled size M) to make a pigtail to connect to the battery connector on the blue brick. a lot safer than cutting the battery wires, you have to be very careful of shorting hr battery wires
RS also sells the small toggle switches to kill the power
I modify all my blue bricks by removing the switch and led and wiring the charge and output with wires to reach a "spengler plate"
