Re: Aus Domino Throttle -basic model no stock

Iv been getting a few pms for throttle requests so i thought id better update here. sorry for letting you all down, but since domino changed their moq policy(100 units minimum or something crazy, i cant remember), i just cant justify making any orders for more throttles for the moment unless they ch...

Re: Can I spot weld copper strips?

copper works great, providing it is thin enough, that you dont rely on it for mechanical strength to hold the pack together, and that you have a big enough spot welder with tungsten electrodes. oh, and keep it dry.

Re: 18650 capacity loss test - garage vs basement vs fridge

Yes you definitely wouldn't want to keep anything connected, even a BMS, if storing at a low voltage. I had my Adaptto Max-e drain my lipo packs below safe limits once and I believe the max-e screen must have come on for some reason. I'll be checking the cells periodically to see if they drop, but ...

Re: Advanced ADAPTTO controllers and compatible products

Volts wrote:. I also know that its not good to charge a battery at the speeds that adaptto controller do, I don't know if this has anything to do with the fact that the controller die a lot, but it can't help.
this statements validity really depends on the size of your battery and the type of cells :wink:

Re: Adaptto Mini-E/Max-E Owner's Thread

looks like on/off to me.
power it up and see if you get high voltage across those 2 wires, if so, its the on/off switch. short it to turn on.

cool! did you buff off the paint before sticking the sinks? i did that and i think it makes a big difference. you can feel just how much colder the aluminium is compared to the painted surface.. I didn't buff off the paint, but that's not a bad idea. I might do that for the Midi-E. Thanks for the s...

Re: Adaptto Mini-E/Max-E Owner's Thread

yes, if your pushing the controller limits id stay with 5t motor. the controller might benifit from good heatsinks too. Yeah, I think your right, and yes heatsinks is definitely a good idea....so much so that I've already done it on my Mini-E, and already have all the heatsinks ready to go for my M...

Re: Spot Welding Copper Strips to 18650 Battery Cells

i did a while ago and was not impressed.
i Ni plated the copper myself, and tried spotwelding it. the results were not too good from memory, but perhaps i was doing it wrong.
they do use it in power tool packs though, with spotwelding so there must logically be a way. it would be a nice material.
