Chargers

Finally making some progress on this project. What I have learned is that you really need to know what your trying to achieve with discharging. Mistake 1: I initially thought I was going to do a 40 amp load bank. My wallet, my packs and my knowledge on this topic said "Not so much". Mistake 2: I tried to design a case out of lexan. After doing a test run with my Chargery 1500 power supply told me again "Not so much". You will need a bunch of cooling and the heat I was putting out...
need to update this when I get home. More to come. As of right now the load bank is built and almost completely wired. Again i will be doing a in depth write up of today's progress.
Last night I ordered the power resistors for the discharge bank. Now lets get into what I got and why i think its going to work? Up front I want to say is sorry for the delay in this part. Things are still not ideal but are getting better. Its going to take some time for this project. Lots of reasons why, one money, times are getting better but still not ideal as stated earlier, two: Voltage + Amps + Watts = FIRE if your not careful along with $160 USD of bad batteries; so no reason to...
If you have listened to RCHN towards the end then you know Justin Pucci has been working on such a thing for almost 4 years now. He has never posted the Tech tip due to the nature of the topic. This project if done wrong can be very dangerous. As of late I have been want to work with my 2 arduinos that I have. I posses 1 Uno and 1 leonardo. This project is being built on the Uno for now. I will need the Mega at some point for the analog pins. My issue with the Uno right now is that it...
For four years, I have been using a Dynamite Ultra Duo battery charger to keep my machines flying. The Dynamite charger has been a wonderful piece of equipment, but it recently gave up and needed to be replaced. Instead of buying another Ultra Duo, I decided to get with the program, and build a real charging case. The project started with a Plano brand handgun case from Walmart, which is very similar to the more expensive pelican cases. They are high quality cases and I use them for...
After almost a year of planning my solar rig is built and functional. Lets start at the begining with the planning,. I originally started off with a deep cycle battery from Home Depot for boats. After further research what I needed was a golf cart battery.
Here is the product review on the little OCDAY 180w, 16A charger that was sent to me Bsyexcellent over at Amazon. Click on the link in the description of the video to purchase this charger.
One of the most requested videos I have been asked for is "how do I parallel charge batteries". Well, the time has finally come and the video is here! Ever since we posted the video showing us charging 9 3s batteries at 30 amps, people have asked how we could do that at such a high amp rating. And the secret is, they were all in parallel with each other. When you wire batteries in parallel, you are doubling the capacity, but the voltage is staying the same. You are also doubling the...
