Hey, everyone! I have a really specific question and I figured y'all would have some experience.

I'm contemplating ordering a Spongeface Keep Alive board for my Haslab Pack, the rub is I don't know if it'll play nice with my other mods. My pack runs on a 3K Talentcell via USB/JST and I've soldered in AUX cords to the speakers in both the pack and wand.

I've read about some issues with Doug's board not getting enough juice from talentcells, has that been remedied? And any reason my speaker mods would cause any issues? I'm terrified of accidently frying the stock board.

No issue with Spongeface keepalive and TalentCell.

Some TalentCells seem to put out voltage that's a hair low. People have used a step-up board to boost the voltage a couple of 10ths, or used the 12v output and a step-down board, to resolve that. But for most, it all works just fine.

I tried using a booster board with not very positive results

Stepping down the voltage (from the 12v output) is likely to be more reliable than stepping it up.
