    removing the disc drive shouldn't cause major dmg like that. my 77XXXX with removed disk drive uses same volts

    Any of those 18650 holders will work - personally I like buying single ones and gluing them into different shapes that fit snugly around my projects :)

    And I agree with Dominatory - removing the drive shouldn't have damaged the unit. I will note that many PS2s are getting old at this stage and I have had them simply die on me, so that can happen too.

    Single ones glued around the case sounds like a good idea actually. 2 batteries on each side (or 4 if I'm crazy). How would soldering them to this red board work? If they are 4 separate battery holders then how would soldering work? I'm confused and I am just being cautious because I don't want to break another PS2 when it comes to putting it together.

    to solder to the red board you will use the wires on the cell holders and connect it to them

    Ahhh so all 4 cell holders connect to them. Would I have to spread out the wires so they don't connect together accidentally?

    Ok here is my monitor. How would I go about applying the 5v mod and soldering it to the mobo?

    Oh yes it's very similar (just not blue). I'll read up about this and try to get the 5v mod to work. Then I need to solder it to my PS2 which should arrive on Monday. I need to look up or ask where to solder the wires to. Thanks for this page :D

    No, use a Free McBoot memory card - those things have a lot of incredible functions for $20NZD. Have a pick through a few more online guides and even watch some of the videos people have made about making a portable PS2 - they really help to fill in odd-ball little questions like this (that you might otherwise lie in bed at night wondering about) :)

    I've got those exact ones from that trader. Now pertaining to "are they safe?" I'd be disinclined to put a chisel through them whilst indoors, but they should do you just fine.
