Default Pill/Contact board question...

First of all, apologies if this has already been covered in another thread.

I've made a few sinks in preparation for the arrival of a couple of modules.
I'm a bit unsure about the Pill/battery contact board part of it though and thought I'd better ask some experienced minds before I make a mess of things.

The pills I've used are out of various flashlights, but I haven't got any that are bare, so I tested one of them and it turned out that the output voltage was the same as was going in.

So here are my questions......

1. Should I check all of them before using? As I assume they would function differently.

2. Am I just being over cautious as the drivers on the modules will regulate power?

3. I think some of them control modes as in high/low/strobe etc, so should I just de-solder all the components making them nothing but a + - pathway to the drivers?

*pics added.

Thanks guys.

if your not using them to regulate current, then remove every component from the board.

Yeah, the pill is usually just there to give you a place to make contact with the battery. All the electronics from the old flashlight doesn't serve any purpose in the build and should be removed.
