Hi guys and gals, here's my new mod called VACANO After 6 months of design and testing I'm releasing my mod for sale. It's a Pincup slip in that sits in the bottom of the drink holder and lights up your glass. I call it Volcano because when you look down into your cup you look into a Volcano of light. It also looks great from the side. My trusted parts suppliers (one of them is Beatmaster here on Pinside) supplied me with top notch parts again made to my exact specifications. I then hand assemble them myself to assure top quality control so the buck starts and stops with me. I've had one turned on on one of my games for 5 weeks straight with no problems whats so ever. They are water resistant and damn near waterproof and very rugged with a light diffusing top so your glass won't stick to it if it's wet. If your drink overflows your glass there is room for it to drain out the center hole in the bottom of your Pincup. If you have a Pincup that's painted on the inside that will light up from the Volcano also, especially if it's a silver color. For an additional charge I can install a 12v rocker on/off switch in line so you can turn it on and off anytime you wish.
Volcano comes with your choice of 7 colors, red, blue, green, purple, amber, white and Cool Blue (in between white and blue). It's plug-n-play and has 2 connectors on it, one is small male connector connected to the end of a 6 inch length of wire coming from the mod, that plugs into a small female plug which is attached to the main 36 inch power wire which you tape to the underside of the cabinet and up through the speaker hole. The wire has a Molex 3 pin female connector (the 2 outer pins are used for 12v power). With my Leg Light-Ups I always suggest using an 8 way power splitter available from PBL ($25) for plugging that mod into and using a 110v to 12v converter and plugging that into the 110v service outlet in the game, the Volcano would plug into that. I like that set up because it doesn't put any additional strain on your game power board especially with an older game.
Your friends will never forget you have cup holders on your games with the VOLCANO.
Here are the simple instructions for installing Volcano into your Pincup.
1. Drill a 1/4 inch diameter hole 1/2 inch up from the bottom in the back side of your Pincup,
2. Insert Volcano textured surface side up and poke male connector through the hole,
3. Plug the male into the female,
Now mount your Pincup, run the wires under your cabinet, tape them up, run the wires into the cabinet through the speaker hole and plug the Molex connector into a 12v source. OR into the 8 way splitter that I described earlier.
This is the 110v/12v setup that I described earlier.
The price of Volcano is $43 or $50 with the installed on/off rocker switch with FREE shipping in the lower 48
Thanks a lot for looking, if you have questions feel free to ask,
PS, here's what the mod looks like fired up.
I may retake these pictures with better ice cubes and the colors are much richer in real life.
