  1. a couple quick questions about this one. what is the anode/cathode orientation of the LEDs, and for the mid boost, it says to swap a 100n for the 470n, should that read 47n, or is the 47n in the layout supposed to be a 470n? thanks for all your help, you rock.

    1. The LEDs should be top to tail, it doesn't matter which is which just make sure you have one each way. The cap to change is the 100n at the bottom left. If you imagine the 2 postion DPDT switch lugs being like this:

      1-4
      2-5
      3-6

      If you leave the 100n off the board completely, you could put it and a 470n across the outer lugs of the switch, one between 1 and 4, the other between 3 and 6. Then take wires from where the 100n connects in the layout and take those to lugs 2 and 5. Then you can switch between them both.

    1. OK I'll do the changes and add a Bearfoot version. But you used this layout? Just checking that the actual layout is now verified. Cheers
