    Question SNES heat sinks and such

    I am just curious if anyone on here has knowledge in this area. I am back to work on my SNES portable. The two questions I have are: 1. Can I just use the 7805 step down regulator if I put a proper heat sink on it or will it get too hot? 2. I am not planning on including any kind of fan, and...

    Solved Battery life quote

    I know I've asked quite a bit of questions however, I was wondering about how much power a portable Wii would consume with a 5 inch (diagonally) screen with everything else usually in a portable like a Wii and fan etc.

    Question Noob, power input or output question.

    I've been trying my best to understand everything on the trimming guide before going too hands on, I successfully relocated the U10 chip. Now the only question I have is if the 5v, 3.3v, and 12v locations are outputs or need to be supplied with the voltage to the pins 4, 10, and 13?
  5. Question Wii Voltage tolerance

    Hi, before trimming my console, I wanted to make sure my custom regulators are working fine. These are my readings from the four regulators (PTH08080WAH): size of resistor used - output voltage reading from multimeter 82k - 0,995 V 33k -...
  6. Question Recommended Power Switch & Bypass

    I'm at the point of installing a master power switch for the portable. I was wondering what is recommend for a switch and whether it's ok to bypass/short the N64's power switch. I've attached an abstract of my current power routing plan. I am currently using a SPST toggle switch and just leave...
  7. Question Power suggestion for the 5” ZJ050NA-08C?

    I’m building an N64 portable and have been researching/collecting parts for the build based on the BOM and various threads posted here. For video, I’ve settled on the 5” ZJ050NA-08C using the KYV-N2 V6 driver board. Before I order the display I wanted to confirm it will work with my power plan...
  8. Question 12v battery power

    I've decided to make a laptop portable Wii without a trim but have a couple of question. First question is which battery supply should I use. I've seen a AA x 8 battery holder on Amazon. SMAKN 8pcs battery AA 12v clip holder. - Amazon choice. Would this power a Wii? If so for how long...

    Question Power Draw of trimmed Wii

    I took a look at the Custom Regulator Page and noticed that it says the wii draws about 31W, but by adding up the power draw on the different voltage rails I only get about 5.8W (3.3V*0.66A)+(1.15V*1.8A)+(1V*1.53A)=5.778W Do the rest of of the components, that get removed really draw more than...

    Worklog Wii + CRT Portable Combo (Melee Roadtrip Setup)

    Hello Portablizers, I'm looking to get some advice and precautions on an idea that came to me before I jump into this. From my understanding, CRTs can store a very high voltage even after it has been turned off, and discharging said voltage can be dangerous and a bit nerve racking. However, my...
  11. Question Motherboard battery issues

    So in the attempt to portabilitize a Wii I had purchased at an auction, I ended up in a situation where my Wii refuses to show an indicator light when power is applied to it. I tried replacing the big grey power brick, but that didn’t do it, and I think it is a problem with the motherboard...

    How should I charge my 4 18650 cells

    Hello, I have an internal 4 cell 18650 battery pack in my portable, I was wondering the best way to unify them so that they are all charged and regulated from one charge input, and then have a cumulative battery output voltage. I was looking at this board here but I am unsure which points to...
  13. Question Trim help

    I trimmed my wii(6layer) but now it won't power on plz help.could this likely be caused by not sanding with the right grit? Or did I just cut something important? Unless I have to if rather not do the omgwtf trim. This trim will fit fine in my case.
  14. Question Brickless-Power

    Since I'm dealing with power here I decided it better to ask first instead of just winging it. I'm hoping to achieve power without a brick, like Gman's Wii Micro. How should I go about this? What would I need? IIRC wii portables run off less than 2 amps, so could I just get a 12v 2 amp power...

    Ok, so here is a project that I have been working on to help out with building my portables. Not a portable itself but I wanted to get you guys opinion on how I should finish it up.
