Just so for my own sanity. I still need to change the polarity of the wires before plugging into my Circuit Sword?

Curious why this isnt possible to be done when made? May I recommend including a little warning in the package in case people forget to or don't read

there is a clear warning on the first page of this post....
(and a link to instructions to swap over the connectings to be used in products that DON'T follow the general standard)

if the purchaser forget this, then this is really on them (there have been clear mentions/warning for this).....

the polarities are in accordance with how most (about 90%, if not more) of the batteries come as.....


it is Adafruit that has this different on their Power Boost and also Kite on his Circuit Sword....
the MegBat 4.5 has been made/designed in accordance with how all other batteries (with connectors) are made

I bought it from the link in the OP. I followed the directions but it seems the wire was already swapped, now I'm just confused.

I bought it from the OP. I'm confused cause I did the wire swap but seems it was already swapped because after I swapped my wires they're opposite of what shows in the how to guide. See my image after I swapped the wires

Yes I forgot to remove the mention of the swap, all new batches have the wires the way adafruit and Kite's board have it setup. No more swapping it out and if in doubt use a multimeter, which anyone who does any of these builds should have.

Don't contact me about obtaining my board files (as you will not get them). Don't contact me about any of my boards if they are sold out, they will be restocked as soon as I can get them.

RIP my Kite board. F

Edit: so it seems that it's not dead (somehow). I had the usb-c and battery plugged in when I turned it on. That might have saved me. I swapped the wires and still turns on and charges!

Thread is still very much alive... Like my MegaBat!

I'm running a GBZ with RetroPSU, a Pi 3A+, PAM8403, big ol' VECO speaker, and an LQ035NC111 (composite), and I have finally taken the time to test the battery in a fully charged rundown.

Wifi - Disabled
Joystick - Disabled (simple build. I'm saving my analog sticks for my Freeplay CM3)
Bluetooth - Enabled (because common ground boards have not been my friend at all this month, so I'm using an 8Bitdo SN30 wirelessly)

Through mostly Cave Story and Chrono Trigger (lr-snes9x), I have squeezed a cool 4+ hours out of it.

10/10 Update: Ran an actual 100-to-shutdown test today and scored just under 5hrs 29min. Practically all of that time was spent in Cave Story, and I exit ES around the time that I predicted the OneForAll script would safe shutdown, and 5'25" was the uptime posted (i just sorta put down the GB for a few minutes, went back, plugged in a USB keyboard, and that extra little power draw from the keyboard was the curtain call).

Since the battery is loose I will only sell to the USA,Canada & Mexico , there are too many laws and restrictions about shipping Lipo batteries through the mail so I am only selling Domestically.
I really like your battery my problem is that i live in Cyprus (Europe). Is there a possibility to find a way so you can ship me some ?

People have used mail forwarding services to buy things to places I don't ship to so you can try that. I of course do not support it especially if things go wrong after they ship it to you I am not held responsible since I am delivering to an address in the USA and I did my part, but as far as I know people have had success with such services.
