powering usb chicklet

How do we power the chicklet with a battery pack? We have the battery packs but the connectors are obviously different. Are we suppose to get an adapter?

Re: powering usb chicklet

what we're doing is making an adapter...

this means taking a wire, running it from the power port thing that came with the chicklet to a 9 volt battey connector (like a backup battery)

it seems like this is what others are doing. Just watch out for low batteries, they make the signal go erratic

we're using an attack 3 logitech joystic
