Quoted from woody76:

just got my 3rd alt translight package from Aurich. You would think i would just stop selling my shadows. packaged delivered in 2 days from Cali to TN.
Thanks for doing another run!!

That’s hilarious!

I’m chilling at the beach in San Diego this weekend, unwinding some. Dropped everything off at the post office Thursday before I left town, glad to hear they’re arriving already.

First mod done and most important! Battery removal! I went with Frank's dual button board this time around give it a shot. He makes some quality products. This is by far the most quick and easy way to rid yourself of those nasty AA's. Buddy of mine owns a CFTBL and he put fresh AA's in his Creech in December. He was in the backbox checking for something the other day and sure enough one of them started leaking already! I do use NVRam as well when I feel like soldering a chip on one of these boards but I've also had 2 NVRam boards from weebly fail on me and I'm trouble shooting another.. Either way as long as we support those in the hobby making this type of stuff keeping our pins safe for years to come it's all good! I think the fact the last owner of my Shadow used wall mart batteries also made me to this mod first! Great little product for the money it's a no brainer! Get those AA's out!

I installed one of those and its much easier for sure but you still have to remember to replace the batteries. The batteries do last a long time though and there's no worry about acid damage, it's a good battery mod.

#1366 2 years ago

I'm confused - they made a custom board - why didn't they just replace the WHOLE BOARD? It literally is no more difficult. (Hell, I made one myself, even sold a few extras here..)

This way it can be used in many different applications. This board works on all WPC titles some still have the batteries on the CPU board.

If I understand your point correctly, I think it's a lot cheaper to replace a battery holder than it is to replace an entire board and it's also much easier to replace the battery holder than it is to install the NVRAM if the board doesn't have a socket.

Might have lost ya there somewhere.. This installs by literally soldering off the AA battery holder from the remote board and or on the CPU and you solder this button battery board using 4 of the mounting holes that the AA board mounted. AA boards uses 6 points of contact this button battery board only uses 4 of them so it's an easy install. I attached a pic of the back side of mine and as you can see some nut got their iron too hot previously and took a few pads off my remote battery board. I was able to flow enough solder in the hole to make the connection thankfully. You can almost just heat the solder up, pop off the AA battery holder, and heat the solder again and poke the 4 posts through from this button battery board. Most WPC the ram is socketed and soldering on these old boards that already don't like to be heated up, can be touch and go with lifting off pads and destroying traces. In a nut shell if you want to not worry about the AA's blowing up and have limited solder skills this is the answer. One of the reasons I don't want AA's anywhere on my game... Good friend of mine has a pretty large collection of pins. His wife is "somewhat" into the hobby as well. She got a high score on one of his pins while he was away on business. She did not see her high score when she played the game the following night. She thought the batteries were bad. She took out his lithium AA's and replaced them with some generic brand AA's. Well he went into the backbox months later to trouble shoot a switch error and found the AA's she put in blew up and ran all over his CPU destroying it. For under 20 bucks this button battery board makes sure that never happens again

My apologies, missed that there were still replies to this ancient thread. Hopefully anyone who was looking for one knows about the run going on now and is covered.
