Spent my morning finishing up my no cutting HasLab inner cyclotron light mod. Of course I had to cut the wires you make for the mod, but not any of the originals.
I’m still able to use D-Cell batteries but I did add the ability to use this instead. I haven’t had to recharge that during all my tinkering. https://a.co/d/8SGi2CF
I’m only using either the original D cells or this battery. Not together. One or the other. Works the same with either as far as I can tell. I thought a talentcell was overkill.
Most I had laying around the house from other projects and repairs over the years. I did not buy any of it for this purpose, you might find better options especially for the wire colors. Someone will ask for the parts list so like it or not this is everything I used:

3D printed replacement inner panel and lenses: https://www.etsy.com/listing/1408432601/

Wire for making the long extension cables: https://a.co/d/3VSS6AE (I don’t care for this much but I had it already)
Inner cyclotron panel:
DPDT Switches, soldering recommended: https://a.co/d/0cnoKXd
Multicolor prewired 5mm LED assortment: https://a.co/d/95w4r9c
Multicolor prewired flashing 5mm LED individual colors: https://a.co/d/8XMlv6H
I made an adapter that goes between the outer cyclotron light harness and the mainboard. The plug on the mainboard is a 4 pin red connector The colors/functions of the wires:
Brown- lid detection ground
Black- cyclotron light ground
Yellow- cyclotron light data
Red- cyclotron light VCC+
Connecting the black and brown together overrides the lid shut-off feature. This feature is the 2 pin jst in the adapter harness.
The pictures have captions that explain them.
