you can put your sticker/label on the outside. this isn't rocket science.


His wrap is what holds it in place I think. Like something printed and cut out I'm guessing. Plus that wouldn't fix the issue of the battery not fitting.

I'm gonna be getting a set of sandpaper tomorrow and make that my evening project! Never give up hope xD


lol, sounds like something I would do! :p I was going to actually recommend that until I saw how the Cuboid's batteries were setup. I didn't know how you'd feel about sanding the cage without removing it first... though I would highly suggest removing it first... lol

I did that the other day with these wraps. Just cut out the LG info portion, slid it under, *cut the wrap shorter*, and over the top. It was all fit tight. Am I missing something? Was it a thick label?

I think it should be okay.. I've already done the measurements and between the battery cage and the outermost walls of the mod there is about a 2mm gap. But taking into account what you've just said, I think taking it apart first to see how safe this is, is a good idea.

Time to rip this baby apart.

I'm thinking mainly of all the plastic dust that will be inside the mod when you're done. lol

I'd remove the cage and any contacts attached if possible and wash off the dust when it's done. I just wouldn't want that crud in my mod is all. Sanding the holes a little larger should be completely safe, and it won't need much at all most likely.

Good thing you mentioned that buddy.

Look here at 24 minutes. He shows the battery sled and it is EXTREMELY thin.

Tried to take it apart but couldn't do so without damaging the screen so I decided to see if I could find anything online that could show me the internals. How do you reckon I should go about this now haha

On second thought, if I sanded slowly and carefully I think I could make it thin enough to accommodate for the batteries. Still wanna hear your thoughts on it though.

The batteries get stuck if I try and shove them in but if I do it slowly and keep twisting them on their way in then they go in pretty smoothly. That tells me that it just needs a LIITLEEE more space and they'd be free to go in and out as they please.

I think it would be just fine. Take very little off all sides as it will add up while not thinning any one side too much. The sled is supported by the walls of the mod anyway which is why they are so thin in the first place. All it does is just hold the batteries in position. The sled shouldn't actually be supporting anything in the design as far as I can see, it just acts as a guide.

My thoughts exactly. Haven't really modded a mod in the past tbh so I'm was scared of doing it without a second opinion.. I just love pulling shit apart and putting it back together mwahahaha. I'll let you know in 24hrs how I went ^_^

Pleasure chatting, pal!

wrap a bit of wet and dry fine sandpaper into a tube shape and just sand the hole without dismantling
you find everything in the last place you look. try looking in the last place first.
