Re: The Cycle Satiator, universal charger for the enthusiasts

I received my Satiator v7 in January 2020, it charges a 12 volt car battery. Yes that matches the widest-range specs given for model# 4808 Nominally labeled "24V-52V" output range 12-63V @8A Note if 12V usage is the main goal, the model# 2415 "12-24V" unit delivers nearly twice as fast a charge @15...

Re: The Cycle Satiator, universal charger for the enthusiasts

I received my Satiator v7 in January 2020, it charges a 12 volt car battery. The side of the Satiator says output - 24/36/48, the manual specifications say 12 - 63 volts.

Looking to step-up voltage on a 24 volt Lawn Mower

Hi Everyone, Looking for some advice from people who have used step-up converters. I purchased a 24 volt lawn mower which was originally powered by lead acid batteries and were at the end of their life. Last year I ran the mower on 20ah of 6s lipo batteries and the mower worked great! I charge the p...

Re: 5-16S Smart Tiny BMS preorder - 30/150/750A rated

Anyone know if the BMS requires a special type of Bluetooth module (aka from Energus 25.00 € +tax +vat probably $50CAD by the time its at my door) or would a HC-05 Bluetooth module ( $6 CAD) work for communication?
HC-05 is 4 wire 5V, GRND, TX, RX.

Thanks,

Jeremy

Re: 5-16S Smart Tiny BMS preorder - 30/150/750A rated

Since the Tiny BMS communications are so well documented, I've put together a read-only monitor for the Tiny BMS that I use during charging. You'll need a python 3 install with the Bokeh and PyModbus libraries. https://github.com/dsoto/Tiny-BMS-Monitor BMS-app-screenshot.png Anyone put together a c...

Re: 150 A Wattmeter and power analyzer value question

Here are my guesses :)

The value 31.53 Vm...what is this?
Voltage Minimum, what the voltage drops to when you are at max amps (20 amps)?
The value 00:11Te...no idea
Time since powered up?
21.06 Ap...no idea
Max Amps?
and 21.0 WH I guess its Watt Hours
Correct

Re: Rewiring a Crystalyte HS3540

it is always good to use the gear puller hooks on the stator instead of just the side plate as it could crack. You can't use the gear puller hooks on teh stator, because the center of the gear puller has to push on teh axle which is part of the stator. You have to use them on the cover edges to pul...

Re: Rewiring a Crystalyte HS3540

Gear puller is pretty slick and glad I bought one from the get go. I think I paid $20. Makes it really easy to push out the shaft from side plate, remove the stator (bolted to dropout) from the rotor (attached to spokes) AND most importantly reinstall the stator into the rotor! The magnets are very ...

Re: I freed a 4 inch Dragonfly that got its neck stuck in a split frond

I learned a neat fact about them when I was travelling recently.
I guess they are in the larval stage living in swamps for years before flying, so the one you saved could have been 4 years old.

Yes, it was my fault. However, it is the failure mode that is the concern. In the real world all kinds of things can happen, and power loss to the board is possible too.

Great chainring!!

I thought 62 tooth was pretty big and would give a pretty good cadence.

You should be able to pedal at 100 km/h.
