today we've cleaned, dismantled and assembled the bike of my girlfriend.
During this I've removed the old dynamo and everything related to it.
But because the retro lamp fits so good on the bike I've decided to try to put a modern USB LED lamp in the old case.
Some time later I've dismantled both lamps, cleaned the case and am ready to assemble them together.
The new lamp has a
capacitive touch sensor on board which doesn't fit in the hole of the new case. 😕
Is there anyone who has an idea if there's an easy way to replace it with any "real" wired switch?
Or does anyone have an idea how to extend/move the capacitive touch sensor via a wire for example?
In the original lamp there was a metal pin in the case which hadn't triggered the sensor. Only if water or my finger have touched the pin the sensor was triggered. Is there some special metal which doesn't trigger the sensor itself but can transfer the touch? 🤔
