    Years of reading and battery safety is a mystery to me

    Hey LEDguy, check out this video. He is a big dog at CurrentConnected where I bought my LFP batteries. He is active on diysolarforum. After 5 minutes there is not much more to be seen on this:

    Years of reading and battery safety is a mystery to me

    Most of my backup batteries are about 80%, but closer to 100% inside about 5 flashlights. I have some almost 10 year old 18650’s that are doing fine.

    We were supplied Apple laptops at work. They last. Figure out your annual cost if you use it for 10 years or whatever. Maybe easier to pony up the $. The Chromebook we get now has a 2nd rate screen, some awkwardness and will do ok for our needs…

    How do you get your drinking water?

    My newest ride my favorite ride ever

    A quick search yields a charging voltage for a 36V ebike battery as 42V max. A problem that happens is that faulty or mismatched chargers keep charging after the cells are 100% and this is when tragedy strikes. Solar panels should go through a good quality charge controller to avoid...

    Years of reading and battery safety is a mystery to me

    Some of us including me have been making personal attacks and it is going too far. New members and visitors are unlikely to find this behavior credible. It also does not look good when essentially false information is being passed along as fact. I belong to a forum called GatewayToAirguns and...

    Orbtronic for protected or bare cells. Illumn is a good source. The only Keeppower I bought were 4 protected that had different diameters but performed satisfactorily.

    18 kids injured, 1 critically, in fire sparked by lithium-ion battery at NYC daycare

    Sounds like the critically injured child was in the basement at the time of the fire; wondering if there is a connection. It would be informative to read updates. Tragic event.

    Boy howdy if there is a convenient way the image of that ABTOMAT flashlight can be reposted, what greatness would that be?

    Great to see such nice flashlights. Canned air can be used for dust on reflectors. One should be careful to keep the can upright when using it, thinking. That is such an excellent design; keeping the reflector separate from the emitter.

    Years of reading and battery safety is a mystery to me

    Our nightly dog walk was in about 27°F, took about an hour and when we got home, I put the battery on the charger. CPF members here will have guessed correctly: no fireworks. Others can refine the details if they wish regarding some of chillinn’s ideas, but I’ll just say the whole resting...

    That Nitecore you linked is rechargeable; connect a USB C cord to charge. Have fun with it and let us know what you think of the double switch on the tail. Member chillinn is an ok person but this is being way overthought and some details are a bit suspect. Nitecore is not going to give you a...
