    Lol, no. I have to figure out a new battery for the controller board. The 12v one I was going to use only has about a 2 hour life span which is not very good.

    So is that because of being on the whole time? Did you start with a fresh battery?

    I'm going to get new batteries and see what kind of lifespan they have, but the data sheet for that battery says that it only has a capacity of 55 mah, which means that it can support a current draw of 55 miliamps for 1 hour. The 2 components pull about 20 miliamps, so the A23 battery is only good for about 2 hours.

    So my question for you is are they drawing that power the whole time? Wont that make them get hot?

    20 miliamps isn't that much so heat shouldn't be a problem, but I won't know for sure until I have the boards made and put the mockup in a helmet.
