How do I bypass the bridge in this circuit?
« on: March 23, 2008, 06:09:32 AM »

I ordered two of these kits and I have only assembled one but I used the bridge (The page where I ordered from said it will deliver 1A or more but it did not tell me I would have to upgrade a component, to do so) Since I'm using it in my computer anyway I would only be putting in DC voltage so I guess I can get rid of the bridge rectifier What would the scamatic be with out the bridge? 

Here are the Pics

2. The PCB

Thanks and sorry I'm an noob to electronics

Just hook up DC to the two solder points marked + and 3. Before you do, just flip the board over and verify that 3 is connected to GND for me.

Pretty much only 3 components on this whole board will even be necessary in that configuration.
