So I have this Arduboy that’s doing less than stellar. It has a few issues with it such as broken battery tab, a couple worn out metal snap domes belonging to the B and UP buttons (likely from having it in my back pocket), and a missing screw. Would you say that I should fix it, or would I be better of just leaving it be?
Thanks to @silatjedi’s post, I was easily able to find a potential replacement battery for a total of $19.60.
Also found some screws that are M1.4 x 3mm on eBay
for $5 along with these metal snap domes for a Xbox One controller for $7.50. I have no clue if the snap domes will be the right size as of yet, but from what I measured, I believe that the metal snap domes on the arduboy are 5mm in diameter. I’m currently looking around for my broken Xbox One controller to harvest and measure its metal snap domes, but no luck thus far.
The two items from eBay would be $13.25 togther, including tax, as of now. So, plus the battery, the total would be $32.85 for the repairs. Only an $11.15 difference from getting a new Arduboy. Would you say it’s worth it? If so, would you say the parts I listed are appropriate for a repair?
