2024-03-02 (Sa) RADARBadge Connection chages

I resented that I could not find battery holders and had to resort to a USB port, which only supplies 5V while the motor can run at 6V. Asking people to solder leads to a motor was also a problem. I checked PCBWay, another popular circuit board builder, but they did not stock electronic components, to my knowledge.

I checked Amazon and found battery holders with header-type leads and the gear motor with them. People will still have to install the motor and magnets, but that will always be a factor. I added a low-profile 4-position header block to plug the battery and motor leads. Once I confirm the circuit's functionality on the previous version, I will order the updated boards.
