How to build DC713 Snek badge for DEF CON 26

Step 0: Thanks cPanel for the support!

Step 1: Solder resistors on E8, E12, and E9

N00BTip: If you lose a resistor, you can just short it with a big glob of solder. I may have done this once or twice :)

Step 2: NPN on E1, it goes on so that it lays flat

Step 3: decide if SAO or stand alone;

If SAO,

solder 4 pin connector, solder to badge

else

battery pack according to diagram. Super glue on tie tack for back

Step 4: Take a picture and post of twitter with #snek, @DC713hou, @cPanel

The #snek army

Warning: A battery AND SAO being connected to a parent badge could result in too many volts going into the parent badge. This could damage things
