I found a better charger for the upcoming LED Hula Hoop Upgrade Kit which only takes 1 hour to charge!! I think this is awesome since you’ll never suffer significant downtime. My supplies for the rechargeable upgrade kit for your ProdMod LED Hula Hoop are on their way in limited quantity as a trial, a handful of you have been clamoring for it but I can never be sure how many will actually buy. So I decided to open it up for pre-orders. This also prevents me from ordering too many parts from my suppliers. The first shipment of kits should be ready for shipment in the first week of July which is only 2 weeks away. There are only 3 available to ship that week. So if you want it fast you need to pre-order. Otherwise it will likely be an extra week before I get more parts.
I have priced out the kit as best I can at $39 plus $8 shipping. Since this is so new and does involve some prep work on my end I cannot guarantee the price will stay this low after the pre-order. So pre-ordering allows you to lock in the low price.
Instructions are up , it involves drilling a hole in your tube, soldering connections, and using some hot glue and possibly epoxy or silicone (window sealant). If I get enough complaints about soldering I might consider offering a solder-less version that allows you to just twist wires together.
Here is what is in the kit:
Rechargeable battery with wires attached – This will fit in the same spot as your lithium battery
DC Jack – I’ll post instructions on where you can put this jack in your tube
Switch – just in case you need a new one since you’ll be connecting it to the DC Jack a certain way
Some extra wire to make connections
1 inch thickness – only!!! This battery will NOT fit in the slimmer 3/4 hoop offered on this site.
Tools you’ll need:
Needle nose pliers
Silicone (Window Sealant)
