Push button

18650 li-ion battery

Use the link provided to buy the material.

Step 1

Take out your D880 transmitter and bend the base, collector and emitter pinout at a 90-degree angle, make sure to be careful while doing this.

Step 2

Place the transmitter onto the PCB and with the help of tweezers screw it on, you can use a nut to secure it in place.  

Step 3

Use the available diode. Bend it and place it on the PCB and solder it at the back.

Step 4

Use a resistor, bend it and place it on the PCB, solder it as well.

Step 5

Use the capacitor, make sure that the polarity is accurate according to the marking on the PBC and fix it to it.

Step 6

Use the terminal, this is used for power and insert it into the PCB.

Step 7

The last thing needed is a transformer, insert the wires onto the board as firmly as possible, make sure that the wires are not damaged in the process. You can use a cable tie to hold it more firmly, solder all the wires at the back of the PCB

Step 8

Once you have attached all the materials precisely on the board, you need to connect the battery wires to the terminal, keep in mind that the lighter runs on 3-5 volts.
