Here are two easy to follow diagrams for two different setups for a recharge port. The first one is a basic, no kill key direct set up. Meaning, the port does not shut off the power to the board it is simply tied in to the rechargeable battery so that you can charge it inside the hilt. These views are looking at the bottom of the recharge port. this is not the port opening.
This next one is for a recharge port. It does kill the power to the board by using a "kill key" which is a plastic plug that fits in the port opening when not charging or in use.

On the second diagram if anybody wanted to use a PLI they would hook the red positive of the PLI to the red on the recharge port and the black negative from the PLI to the Green terminal on the recharge port that way your PLI is only on when you pull out the kill key.

Rogue Five: Sandpeople-Cool! I don't have any of the Noble Collection swords but I have a few of the United Cutlery ones and they are superb replicas as they're modeled directly from the original props. If you're interested in buying another one, I highly recommend

Rogue Five: Anduril. I have one and it is gorgeous and sturdily made. I believe it is a full tang sword so you could swing it around without it flying apart. Trust me, you'll feel like the King of Gondor holding this thing lol.

ARKM: "full tang United Cutlery" is an oxymoron.

ARKM: That does not mean that they aren't nice for hanging on the wall though. I have a UC Kurgan sword. I like it.

Rogue Five: Yeah I wouldn't go looking for a fight with any wall hanger swords lol. I think Anduril and Strider's Ranger sword are the only full tang swords in the LOTR line.

Rogue Five: I looked into getting a functional Anduril from a custom swordsmith but no one I found made a screen accurate one.

Rogue Five: That Kurgan one is nice. Sword afficianados like to dump on it because it has a two piece blade and they're right but who cares! It looks bad a**
