    Yup - the top switch wire taps into positive feed to 510 and will force a booming short when pressed

    The top switch wire should go to the negative side of 510

    Also don't think it covered using a mosfet (3034) to turn on a high wattage/amp circuit etc....
    but then if they got the very basics that far out then perhaps best they don't
    Though tbf it seemed like it was a half confused mosfet circuit with a basic switch circuit
    As with a negative mosfet like the irl3034 you take a postive supply to switch, out the other side to signal wire to 3034 gate leg
    turning on the mosfet to allow the negative circuit to complete from source to drain
    viola - high amp or wattage switching without arcing at switch contacts

    well something like that - been a while since I built some power fet circuits

    Also very confusing trying to explain the doubling of voltage/mah difference
    with using series/parallel arrangement - one doubles voltage & other the mah capacity
    explained perhaps a little easier and quite basic here....

    apart from that "minor" safety flaw.....
