    where would you live if you could live any where you wanted?

    Right where I am now, I have my own piece of tranquility! Even when it rains we get rainbows to look at! None of us know what the future holds so if you get the opportunity to live your dream, then do it!

    Binge worthy series

    Ozarks, Mindhunter and Narco's are well worth watching. 'Slow Horses' with Gary Oldman, only one series so far but thoroughly enjoyable!

    Sofirn c8f battery query

    The 18wh is the nominal power, similar 4000mAh versions are rated at 14.78wh so you have a better battery.

    Sofirn c8f battery query

    Li-ion batteries are listed as 3.6v (they can be charged up to 4.2v), I think the 3.7 listing was probably a typo, you've received a 5000mAh battery instead of the 4000mAh one that was advertised.
