I have no problem to hold the battery. I am encountering some issues to maintain a good contact between the pogo pins and the battery.
I’m trying another update of my pogo pin holder.
To tell you shortly, i have shaved some small bits to allow the part to sit 1 mm down. Then i reversed the pogo upside down (and reversed also the cables to respect polarity) i fed up the rear of the 3D part with VHB to stick it upside down for testing purposes.

This manipulation allows me to have the pins in the good angle so they can bend without deformation when the battery is going down.

Now that i know this way is better, i’m going to rework the model to add a step on the rear (this will prevent me from filling with 3mm VHB lol) and i will add a wall on the rear.

Why a wall ? because the design and the followed path is good but with many in and outs, the pogo pins slightly goes back in the case and then i have some connection lost when playing.

I really want to keep the grinding of the case very tight because i don’t want the battery to move.

I’ll deal with the 3D model this weekend and post it here.
I’m for now away on a trip for my job so i’m a bit lazy and just want to play :mrgreen:
YaYa, did you ever finish with your refitting of the battery bay? Your design is the reason I bought Pogo pins and the same batteries. I haven't started grinding Down the Walls of the battery compartment yet, so if you have any measurements or 3D printed parts that make things work better, please post them!

Edit: I also wanted to thank you for all the optimization stuff! Once I have a functional GBZ I'm going through every one of those settings.
I am away for my job and did really have time designing again the support. I have modified the last print with an exacto knife and now i know how to do the trick. Toorrow i’m back home and i’ll publish an updated version.

Thank you for your interest

Thank you very much Mooarcuuuus ! :D

The DC barrel plug is connected to the pads just behind the power in micro usb on the SAIO.

Image

On the above picture (taken from Kite’s wiki), those are the pads between the HDMI, USB and SD. These pads are the extension of the power micro usb port. So i’m not using the micro usb port and did not cut the hole for it and instead i put the DC barrel i to the classic hole and hold it with my custom support.

Tonight i will share the stls.

update 24/10/2017

Some updates and more pictures :mrgreen:


I was just a lot disturbed by the glares on the glass screen so i have decided to go for a laptop screen protective plastic shield with anti glare.

You can notice that despite all my attentions and the use of the alcohol spray technique to make the sheet slide, i managed to capture a bubble (actually cause by a cloth dust :twisted: )
The cutting was a bit hard and now that i have the right technique, as soon as this one gets scratched, i'll do it even better :D

I'm my quest for zero glue and no screws nothing invasive, i've decided to tight fit the speaker in the original site. I slightly grinded the round shape to take around 0.5mm from all round the circle, and i just push fit the speaker in it and voila. It's so tight that i need to use a flat screwdriver as a lever from the cut you can see.

Here is the speaker i am using

The difference from V1 is the pogo pin being used reversed upside down so that the pins can bend in the correct direction (from up to down)
I have removed 2 small pieces of material so that the holder can sit a bit further down, this will allow a better vertical alignment between the battery pads and the pins (now it's all centered)
I have removed some material from the front for the same reason.
Added a "wall" behind to support the back of the pogo pins (we will add VHB up this wall and on the battery side of the wall so the pogo pin will slide and stick on top, preventing it to lift, move right/left, and back)

This support is designed to be used with the aftermarket Samsung Galaxy S2 batteries. It allows the battery to be hold tight in the compartment and also it's a guide to see where to grind the sides :mrgreen:
The bottom gives you the bottom level for grinding, the left and right walls, gives the right and left limits to grind

This build is phenomenal. Maybe by the time I get to my 3rd or 8th build it will look half as good. Still fretting lining up the pogo pins right.

Also, what is the purpose of the mode button? Is that something I've overlooked?

thanks for your comment ! :D
No, i am not anymore fretting with the pogo pins alignment, i have a working model based on my previous 3D print that i have slaughtered :lol: but i am still away from my home for my job so i do not have access to my CAD software, i cannot modify the CAD for now.

It's a matter of few days, final update, one last print and i'm pretty sure this time i'll be good :D

The mode button is specific to Kite's SAIO. It allows you to enable "secret" functions like a hotkey... For example Mode+A button enables wifi, mode + B disables it...
Take a look here https://github.com/geebles/Super-AIO/wi ... rtcut-Keys
