No chance of that happening down here. Thanks for the info, though.

Re: Project: Replace 18650 cells in laptop battery (w/pictures)

I did the battery cell swap on my Toshiba Satellite laptop and it won't do anything now. Just shows no battery detected.

My Sony Vaio shows no battery detected but runs fine off the charger connection. Battery is there just pitifully low voltage. Laptop is used as desktop only.

Re: Using BadBoy charger for 30S battery

John, you are correct in that I am aware of everything you just posted, including changing out the resistive wire in these suicide shower heads, before I went Solar water heating.I'm just hoping some the educated guys come back in and educate me/us.

Re: Using BadBoy charger for 30S battery

Maybe I should say why I am/was interested in this charging system. Many years ago, I bought a belt drive 4KW ?120/240 volt AC alternator and attached it to a 10 to 1 gearbox that was attached to a 15 foot diameter propeller that I carved and placed this on a 60' tower that I built. I ran 2 hot legs...

Re: Using BadBoy charger for 30S battery

Segment the pack and charge each segment through an isolated AC/DC supply. This idea I have used for my 83V (74V nom.) , but it creates some manipulation to reach a very close balance voltage among segments. The Chevy Volt battery carries a nearly perfect balance of it's own, (.01-.015) usually. I ...

Re: Using BadBoy charger for 30S battery

How can you not understand what I wrote ? I specifically said the log area is close to within 80-100 feet of the house and I have possibly 2 runs of 12G solid romex wire to charge the battery. I have said, twice that the AC voltage would be 117 from the house/grid. Obviously, a max of 20 Amp supply ...

Re: How do I step voltage down with low losses, weight and size?

How about we take this bad boy charging to another direction. I have a 120V 30S 4.1v/cell, Chevy Volt battery that I want to use to drive my sawmill that is nearly ready to use. According to what I think I read in this thread, rectifying AC voltage results in a 33% increase of voltage to obtain DC. ...

Off topic but desperate-- Chevy Trailblazer

2005 Chevy Trailblazer tranny Daughter just bought a used one and it doesn't always shift from 2 - 3. She can manipulate it by throttle and manual shifting and sometimes it will change. It is an automatic. 130,000 miles 4WD. No idea what model tranny ? Anyone with experience ? Thanks. Don't want her...

Re: Protect yourself while trying to develop/market a tool

Small time operation here, no where near commercial and don't have anything to do with "E" anything. Just looking for advice.

Patents are expensive and can be bypassed by China, etc. All I want to do is get a company interested and make a small royalty per piece produced.

Protect yourself while trying to develop/market a tool

As the title says, how does one go about this? We have designed an ingenious and simple tool and want to receive royalties, IF possible, and have someone make and market this tool.

Any and all input is accepted. Thanks

Re: Squaring a Drill Press Table

I use a magnetic base with my dial indicator mounted on the table. Then, mount a known straight rod (drill bit) in the chuck and touch off on a 90 degree from 2 sides or from both sides, if you are worried about table warpage. Harbor Freight magnetic base with rods for around $15.00 with coupon.
