I want to replace the battery power for my PicoBorg Reverse - Advanced Motor Controller to wall power. Because i don't want to spend a fortune on battery's. Could someone help me? On Google and Youtube I only found how to replace a 4AA holder. But I don't want to use a holder or something.

I converted a bunch of LED string lights to run permanently from mains power by soldering an adapter plug into the circuit.

I took one of these Image and cut one of the output pinsImage apart to expose the connections. then I made sure I marked the polarity so that if the connector became unplugged It would go back the right way around.

Given that a PicoBorg would not tolerate a reversed voltage anywhere near as well as a string of LEDs I would probably not do this technique for the PicoBorg, instead I would Wire the lead from the plug permanently into the circuit.

Ensure that you have the polarity correct, applying the wrong polarity could be expensive.
