Hey guys, after my first custom host with rear end tail cap switch i d like to make one with side push button latching switch. So i want my rear end to have a threaded cap but without a switch. Just a board and spring.
How do you recommend to mount a blank battery board on a cap? By tight fitting or somehow gluing the board?
It will be the first time trying it so i apologize for this, maybe, stupid question!

Hi,
You can do it the tail cap is the ground to the host , the contact board needs to be in contact with the tailcap . On the board you should see copper traces that need to contact the Aluminum and just solder a spring or a solder blob.

Hi
First it depends on how big the board is
Then you will need the brass rings at 17mm for a 16.8mm board if that’s the size you will be using
you will need the right size counter bore
Survival Laser has boards and brass rings
