So! a few things, since Ive last spoke. battery meter works beautifully. installed a switch to change between dot and bar mode. and installed a opaque shield over the LED's to blend them together a bit more. im thinking about removing it, but ill have to see. The newest problem is something i tried to figure out how to do at the very beginning of the pip-boy. a retractable charge cable. what Ive struggled with. Was how to make it spin on a fixed point. while maintaining 4 separate electrical connections for the usb. Hot, Ground, Data+, Data -. i gave up for some time and just had a fixed spool that i wrapped my usb around. last couple days i had the idea of using audio components of a 3.5 jack and socket, since headphones spin perfectly fine while plugged into a music player without fault in sound quality. but im hitting a snag. it charges my pip-boy great. but the data doesn't seem to work. Ive triple checked my soldering joints, and the usb ends to make sure they're fully operational. and they're good. What would pull back data info from going through and audio connection, while electricity can pass unaltered. Any ideas you have is extremely appretiated.
