G930 Mod

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I am looking at creating a led charging gauge for my g930 headset. Basically, i modded my G930 to hold an 1800 mah cellphone battery essentially tripling my battery life, however Logitech's battery monitoring side of the software is awful so i would like to go the hardware route and breadboard an led system to monitor battery progress with a green LED, a yellow LED, and a red LED.

Getting the battery in was easy, and looks clean as I am able to still fit the cover back on:



Any info on where to start would be incredibly useful.

Just look for a cheap battery indicator that that has the correct voltage range for your battery and hook it up to your battery with a momentary button.
Or just hook up a cheapo little voltmeter the same way and just remember at what voltage your battery dies.

you can find them very cheaply and with free shipping on AliExpress.

The battery is a 3.7v li ion power moxie battery for the droid x I'm not sure of the exact model number. If I could do it again I would have used a battery from adafruit. I personally cannot tell that I changed a thing in regards to the weight of the headset if you would like me to show you how to do it I would be happy to write up a tutorial

Not sure if the min voltage on that voltmeter is low enough, you'll have to measure the voltage when it shuts off.

I would be quite interested to see. Are you able to recharge this battery by plugging the original USB cable into the headset?

Yep, plugging into the PC took almost a full 12 hours tho from a dead battery. Honestly have not timed how long it lasts yet

HI.

It's my G930 battery mod,wich was made in 2013



For proper operation is necessary to remove
yellow wire from the battery connector and you also need li-ion 3.7(3.6) charger
