The super capacitor will provide ~20 uAh to 2 volts so it will likely keep the board functional for a few hours. Then what happens? The light may no longer be operational for a while after that.

@hoop, I’m building the GFS16 without the LED board, so once the supercap is fully charged, it’ll stay charged for a long time.

@darkshot, no problem.

Now that I have a competent soldering iron again, I’ll finally be able to do some stuff Smile

@JS93, not with the current boards I have.
I only have the low resistance switches.

I’ll first buy the components for the 10x switches I have, and fulfill the “reserve” list first, and then sell the rest.

If everything goes well, I’ll just order 100x for components and do a small GB for components, and completed switches Smile

So, I’ll order the components after my exams.

If I can build one well enough, I’ll start making them myself and then shipping them.

If not, I’ll just sell the components directly to you, my friends Smile

Nice, not everybody is dead it seems.

I now have 2 slots left since I don’t really care too much about these switches anymore.

Well, since my XHP50.3 HI GB went to water, I guess I’ll do this first Silly

I’ve decided it: I will commit to this project entirely by buying a high current switch light with the Convoy M21B to see how large of a difference it truly makes Smile
