    Carefully remove the clear cover by lifting it straight up and look down inside. You will see a little potentiometer. Turn the FUEL CELL on and CAREFULLY ... I repeat CAREFULLY turn the potentiometer till you get the desired speed of the flashing leds. CLOCKWISE for FASTER and COUNTER CLOCKWISE for slower. Then replace the clear cover.

    NOTE: You can do it powered off too to be safe not to damage anything. I adjusted mine while powered on. If you choose to adjust it while powered on just dont let the screwdriver touch anything other than the potentiometers plastic screw. And keep in mind you dont have to turn it but a TINY BIT to see a change. Dont turn it fast or you might damage the potentiometer.

    Alot went into that prop. Its actually cast from the Film Master.

    Doesnt get any better than that....

    The electronics were custom engineered, and I did my best to match what is shown on screen. The insert show for the film, took one of the props, and stuffed it with an extra LED that wasnt designed in the original board. Also, they changed the exposure level to make it look BRIGHTER. My prop used the same LEDs that are used in POLICE cars.

    ;-)

    If you pull the clear cover off....and look STRAIGHT DOWN, Between the Boards on the LEFT side, you will see an adjusting screw.


    Turn it!

    I did this incase someone wanted the ABOUT TO EXPLODE VERSION with a damaged Clear section. It had a faster flash rate.

    The other cool thing about this fuel cell is that if you have it charging, you can still put the lights on as well. It's like a freaking disco (in a good way), or a "rave" for you young peoples. :)

    Frank, you did an outstanding job on these!

    Nope.
    I have a handful left, but was not actively looking to sell them.
    I even have one that is designed to run off of a power cord vice battery, for a TERMINATOR I was going to build, that I have long since sold.

    I might dump one or two on ebay one of these days.


    It was NOT an easy project, and there just isnt any place to do really good CHROME work, beside the one here local. Id rather not go through that again.

    Hey Frank... so are these considered T2 T-800 fuel cells or T3 T-850 fuel cells? Or would they be one in the same?

    The ones shown in The last movie were made off the same master.

    However, the lighting was different. Mostly red from what I remember.

    Right on. So using the lighting you incorporated would these be considered T800 or T850 fuel cells is what Im asking. Thanks. Mike

    I've got one too, it's easily one of the best replicas EVER. Right up there with some of the stuff made by the big companies.

    Frank, you are truly appreciated!

    I think I answered this already as best I could.

    However, now that I thought more about it, Im not sure I can.

    Where have you seen the spec for the 850? Seriously. haha Kidding...

    The battery was first shown in RISE OF THE MACHINES.
    That's what I shot for.

    In the Next Film, the adult John Conner once again uses the batteries to blow up SKYNET.
    THose batteries were the same batteries, they used different lighting.

    If you want to believe they were for another Model of Terminator, 850, 875, or whatever. Cool. I'll go with it, but I dont know where it says that offically.

    Seeing these were in the lab were he actually fights the T-800 (insert Arnie Cameo) for all we know these were supposed to be the T-800 power units. They just went cheap on the lighting by stuffing it with a few crappy RED Blinking LEDS, and fake boards.

    At least ROTM had real boards in them, even if they were not very bright. I have two from production and its amazing they should up at all, no wonder Stan threw a &^%fit and asked for an improved version with more lights. However, I think it was probably "fixed" in post.

    Come to think of it you never referred to it as a T3 fuel cell. I think the reason I am calling it a T3 fuel cell is because in T3 we see Arnold take it out of his chest and throw it out the window and that scene has stuck in my mind. :lol My bad. :facepalm From this point on I will now refer to this piece as a TERMINATOR fuel cell. Mike:thumbsup

    It's just a "Hydrogen Fuel Cell" that's what the T-850 calls it in T3.
