    • get two pieces of heat shrink shield on each of the wires before doing any soldering

    • Solder the wires to the ends on the casing. Make sure to respect polarity! The negative end is marked with a dashed line

    • Put back the screw, the sticker and with a multimeter check that you've got the desired voltage output, in the correct polarity!
