Can anyone provide a simple guide on how to do this including diagrams or pictures if possible
In addition to the onboard battery conversion, I also did one with a trail car and, as Phil says, used the socket on the back of the locoDo you want to put everything in the loco?
Would you be happy with a trail car?
If you have no other (track-powered) loco's on your track. Your track power is disconnected. No points or anything else fed with power from the track. - DEAD RAILS....
Then you can just plug into the socket(s) on the back of the Stainz... - Next stage, is to 'pop' the bullets and skates out of the bottom of the motor-block.
Is it genuine? I once bought three 18650 li-ions which were supposed to be 4000mAh but when I tested them, they were less than 2000mAh - and one of them packed up nine months later ....Off the wall thoughts:
It is now possible to get a 18650 Li-ion battery, with a capacity of 5000mAh! - A phenomenal amount of energy, for a cylinder 18mm diameter, and 65mm long!
Couple this with a small 'step-up' voltage converter, and you can run for hours..
Just a thought..
