Conditions for the operation of battery charger

First, it seems difficult to accept, but actually, investment and choice the best battery charger are more difficult and complex than choosing an electronic device that runs well with similar solvent. Because there will be many other factors to consider when charging in a solvent environment. The following conditions will affect to the operation of a battery charger, that are:

All these factors should be considered carefully if you want to choice and buy a battery charger that is suitable for your own demand.

Determine the correct type of the battery charger you need

To choose the right type of battery charger, you need to be equipped with the basic knowledge about the technical specifications of the type of battery you are using. Specifically, they are parameters to determine the input voltage, types of batteries and abilities to charge how many amps  per hour.

The input voltage of a conventional battery is 120 or 230 VAC. The capacity of the battery voltage is usually measured by “Ah” unit.

Some kinds of conventional batteries:

we often need the solution to add when the battery becomes dry. If you don’t fill acid solution promptly, batteries will lose the ability to charge, discharge, and be easily broken.

  • Battery without filling

It means users do not need to intervene by adding the new solution. For this product line, while still escaping gas charge but less filling product line.

It means that the air can’t escape. When the air can’t escape, the liquid in the battery can’t  “slip” out whether it was let in all postures.

There are two types of AGM battery: gel but an airtight type and gel with 100% dry type.

You can choose any types of them, however, that should be suitable for your demand and usage.

Select the appropriate time for the battery charger is not overloaded

There are many ways to quickly make your battery become out of use (and you will be used a new battery, I’m kidding). It is very simple to find the reasons why it becomes wrong charger. One of those is that you uses wrong battery makes battery chargers become overloaded or under-charging. Overload charging can cause the battery overheat. If the battery is “filling” type the liquid inside it will quickly dry out and evaporate more. Generally, you are destroying your battery. The rate charged correctly for your battery can be calculated based on parameters “Ah”. The level of charge power is printed on the battery cover. And you should follow this number.

A safety chargeable rate is acceptable in the manufacturing industry is about 20% battery power level Ah recorded on your battery. This means that battery with a capacity of 100Ah ideal as it will be calculated at the rate of 20 ADC.

Choosing battery charger Tips Conclusion

There are many factors you need to consider before buying a battery charger. However, in this Choosing battery charger Tips, I have just focused on some mains and important factors and tips that need to look first. I expect you can apply all tips that I have shared when choosing battery charger. Hope you have a right choice.

Thank you!

They have enabled me to follow my dreams

dreamI have been able to live, well and comfortably, for almost two years now without an employer. Instead of working demanding hours in mediocre conditions for awful people, I’ve made my way using every skill I have to trade with others what is necessary to provide a home to my family. Instead of mundane, repetitive clicking of a mouse, or the foul stench of petroleum contamination on my clothing, I have been able to make a real living, and be a great father as well. Because of this, I owe a very great debt of gratitude to Jim and Cathy Forth. They have both had me assist them in improving their lives and homes and as such have bridged the gap for me between music lessons. They have enabled me to follow my dreams.

Jim is no longer with us unfortunately. He was a brilliant link to the past, and a warm loving man from the old school. He insisted on me fixing a table that I told him really should not have been fixed, and I insisted on building him a staircase in lieu of his ridiculous step-class contraption he used to get into his house (that nearly killed many). While mixing concrete, he’d tell me war stories and tales of my son’s legendary Great-grandfather. He took credit for the lineage of art and music instructors in my wife’s family, who’s torch I carry. He taught me about making my money work for me and not the other way around. Working for him was never a day of work at all. He stormed the beaches at Normandy. He carried the Purple Heart. His eyes and mind were alive and lively when talking about Benjamin. Give ’em Hell Jim. He’d laugh when I said that.

if you do, you would have ministered to someone today and God will bless

Several years ago, a preacher from a distant town accepted a call from a church in Leeds. Some weeks after his arrival, he had an appointment that made him to board a bus to another part of the town. When he sat down, he discovered that the driver had mistakenly given him his balance in excess of 50 pence. As he considered what to do, he thought within him, ‘You’d better give this money back. It would be wrong to keep it’. Then another thought came, “Oh, forget it, it’s only 50p; who would worry about this little amount, afterall the bus company makes so much money on fares; they will never miss it. Accept it as ‘a gift from God’ and keep quiet. “When he was getting down from the bus, he paused momentarily at the door, and then handed the 50p to the driver and said, ‘Take; the balance you gave me was in excess’. The driver, with a smile, replied, ‘Aren’t you the new preacher in town?’ ‘Yes I am’, he replied. ‘Well, I have been thinking a lot lately about where to go to worship. I just wanted to see what you would do if I gave you a balance in excess. I’ll worship with you at the church this Sunday. When the preacher stepped off the bus, he grabbed a nearby electric pole, looked up and said, ‘Oh God, I almost sold your Son for 50 pence!’. Our lifestyles are the only Bible some people will ever read. This is just a subtle example of how much people watch us as Christians, and will put us to test! Always be on guard — and remember — You carry the name of Christ on your forehead and shoulders, once you say you are a Christian. ‘Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny’. I’m glad a friend forwarded this to me as a reminder and I chose to forward it to you. If you don’t pass this on to anybody, nothing bad will happen to you; but, if you do, you would have ministered to someone today and God will bless

Review/10Pcs PCB Carbide Micro Drill Bits 0.3mm to 1.2 mm

This is a decent arrangement in a tiny flexible casing. Pleasant paint coding, however the dimension marks are small. For older folks plus others, it would receive a fine dash to ensure a ‘Table Tag’ on the carton, displaying in large figures the dimension and where it exists in the carton.

Proportion reach is immense; class is as it has to be. Not ever imagine any product of PCB Micro Drills to continue always, they don’t. Keep in mind that they are working over fiberglass secure things maximum whiles, or comparable hard matter, they will gray out. As soon as they wear out, throw them away and substitute the separate bit.

Utilize a suitable mechanism considered for PCB drilling, etc. Not fit for a hand drill, you will destroy them in minutes. All makes need to be specifically organized.

Tough to Catch Piece

These carbide drill bits equip the DREMEL 1/8 Drill Collet and function prodigious. They arrive in a stress free to practice pliable container, with a frame for every bit. Take care to mark definite, all the bits are in the container before you shut it, as I have by now misplaced two of the bits to fracture, when shutting the cover on them. My fault, these bits shield the micro series of your drill collections. Micro as in drilling welds in 1/72 gauge aircrafts.

PCB Print Circuit Board 0.3 to 1.2 mm

  • Extremely helpful and incredibly strident bits
  • Upright class, correct in my DREMEL like unique device
  • I endorse, merely the release interval is lengthy; however it is not a huge issue.

Prodigious Carbide Tip Drills

You must use a press. Or else these drills will collapse. They are awfully stiff, but atone for it in life spell.

The Ones you need

I bought this array austerely for PCB labor. Nevertheless, I only instructed one array to give them a try and comprehend how they hit the mark. For the value you can’t outdo the worth. I will certainly purchase a pair of additional, just to ensure them as a standby.

During evaluation concluded from the appraisals, I’ve observed that selected critics have wrecked their bits. Honestly, the bits are simple to shatter if you are careless and don’t conduct them appropriately. These are “precession” bits; necessitating persistence, maintenance, and the correct device for the work (Drill Press).

If you are in search of a good value series of bits and occupied with PCBs, aim for it. It procures a lengthy stretch to take delivery of, but worth the time lag.

Might not be the Gadget you Lack

Entirely all but one shattered on the first circuit panel, and sure, it was in a still drill press and the panel was protected in an x-y vice. I discovered them to be very stiff and the ones I used didn’t even perfect one hole in a solitary sided fiberglass circuit panel.

Pleased Luthier

I’m a luthier, construct and patch-up stringed implements and I wanted these decent series of micro bits to do extremely minor drilling for banjo points. I had a collection of HSS micro bits, but they twisted and ruptured if you beheld them improperly. These are carbide and after I used them in Ebony, very durable wood, they cut gorgeously. I would mention these if you need micro holes. Never attempted it on metallic; however that isn’t why I acquired them.

The Christmas Prelude festivities in the Kennebunkport area of Maine

We went to the Christmas Prelude festivities in the Kennebunkport area of Maine…we stayed in Wells as we usually do. We have been several times and each year we do some of the same things but then try something new and maybe skip something. A few times we have gone to the Fish chowder dinner at the Fire Station on Friday but not this time.

On our way up north on Friday we stopped to eat at Wild Willy’s Burgers outside of York, I had heard good things about them and we had always wanted to stop but it is usually really jamming. We hit their spot on the early end of supper so we timed it good, it was well worth it…the burger and fries were great and just the right amount of food as we did not want to feel overstuffed for we had planned on some evening activity.

We ended up being just a little late for the lighting of the lobster pot tree in Cape Porpoise but we stopped by to see it just the same. There is a picture here of Atlantic Hall and the Church on the Cape in the background, both of which we visited on Saturday for the craft show at the hall and bazaar at the church. We visited a few of the other local bazaar’s on Sat., one of our favorites is the Congregational Church in Arundel, we like their “cookie walk” and I love the fact that they have a very old pipe organ in there. I bought a recipe book from them that they printed from their church members, I tend to collect recipe books…I have many.

We went to the crazy hat parade in the Kennebunkport village on Sat afternoon. This year there seemed to be more people than we have ever seen attend, which is kind of good and bad. Last year, the weather was lousy…this year the weather could not have been any better for a December weekend.

After the parade, we ended up driving out to the Maine Diner for supper since things were just too crowded in the village (we did have a light snack earlier of corn chowder at the local school craft show). Saturday evening we attended the Christmas story/caroling event held at the Monastery, the tradition is to stroll down from the village area. Again, we have never seen so many people attend. Last year we did not go to the caroling event because the weather was not good and it is all outdoors.

The pictures here taken in the daytime were from Cape Porpoise, I walked down the road a bit to a bridge area while I was waiting for Mike to finish browsing.

How to Clean A Wood Stove

There have been SOOO MANY chimney fires in our area lately. A combination of the power outage from the windstorm and cold temperatures I’d imagine. One day I counted 18 fire dept pages for different chimney fires in Spokane. Crazy. People buy houses in town that have fireplaces and never think of using them until a time like this when the power is out and it’s getting really cold. Of course it hasn’t been cleaned out in years and the previous owner probably left the chimney nice and dirty. Those things have to be cleaned out (better yet visually inspected)! Even if you don’t use it on a regular bases.

I know I’m preaching to the choir on here to almost everyone but if you have city dwelling friends it never hurts to drop a gentle reminder. I know of at least two houses here that have burned beyond salvage in our area because of chimney fires that spread to a roof or attic in the past week. Lesson – don’t count on using that fireplace in an emergency unless you clean it out and inspect it every once in a while.

It also helps to know how to deal with a chimney fire. To know how to shut your fireplace or wood stove down, immediately. Our fire district used to give out these neat little packets that you could toss in your stove or fireplace that would immediately put out the fire. It also sends up a nice plume of some concoction that robs a chimney of the oxygen a chimney fire needs. They don’t hand those out anymore, because of budget concerns but maybe your local fire department does. I know even our local DNR office used to give those out (but again I don’t think they do anymore). If not I believe you can still buy them, they never go bad and could be pretty handy.

An Insight into Solar Power 101 Batteries

12321167_449961491863709_3959870046337991044_n

I am receiving several wishes from readers wanting very explicit assistance on how to fix their individual solar electric structures. Numerous have by now discovered that this method is slightly similar to struggling to construct a vehicle by getting parts from a car dealer. Afore I can aid you project your private solar power system, you have to recognize that there are in fact numerous different kinds of solar power systems, for countless different functions.

Structure Categories

  • Certain solar power systems are 12-volt DC owing to the many low power RV and boating lights and machines obtainable, and do not have a function line link. These DC systems can be worked to power some DC lights in a distant lodge, or a DC well pump in a meadow for watering livestock.
  • Specific solar power systems have an inverter to transform a 12, 24, or 48-volt DC battery power into 120-volt AC power to function customary domestic applications. Various grid associated solar power systems are planned for direct linking to your service line and do not use any batteries whatsoever.
  • Hybrid solar power systems can comprise a battery group, a solar range, a generator, and even a wind turbine to deliver power always with the utility grid aiding simply as standby. Inverters and solar ranges are accessible in various different classes, voltages, and installing formations. Selected solar selections are attached on the rooftop, several on the top of a pole, and some are land installed with all requiring diverse cabling instructions.

Batteries

  • Some of the greatest misjudged fragments of a solar power system are the battery or battery group, and explicitly where our session initiates. Some solar battery banks use wet cells, similar to golf cart batteries, whereas others use sealed or gel cell batteries, and all have dissimilar temperature, fitting, and airing necessities.
  • Each battery is planned for a precise kind of charge and discharge sequence. Car batteries have reedy plates to preserve their load down, and are intended for a substantial discharge continuing a few moments, trailed by a lengthy time of sluggish re-charge.
  • Golf cart batteries have very heavy plates and are intended for periods of thick discharge daily, tailed by a quick recharge in only a few hours every night. This is comparable to the duty cycle of a domestic solar use, merely in inverse.
  • A solar battery needs to be capable to deliver extensive interludes of deep discharge every evening and night, ensued by a complete recharge in simply a few periods of sunshine every afternoon. Extremely few batteries can take a deep discharge-recharge round daily, and the 6-volt golf cart battery is the minimum costly and simplest to catch nearby.
  • As every golf cart battery balances nearly 65 pounds, there are weight concerns too because battery gas venting problems need to be considered.

If you want over the 220 amp-hr. capacities enclosed in all golf cart batteries, I advise moving to the larger “L-16” size traction battery, having a 350 amp-hour score, which could permit consuming less batteries.

Safety Measures

  • Batteries can spend above half of the charge once open to severe temperature fluctuates, therefore be assured your planned battery setting stays in a 50° to 80° F range, or you will want to insulate the battery box.
  • As liquid batteries need restocking and battery terminal maintenance to eliminate decomposition numerous spells every year, the surface expanse chosen should be capable to receive an irregular acid leak and water cleaning.
  • Battery venting is very essential, besides if you form an arena about your batteries, it should be aimed to point all vented gasses towards open-air. Be certain it is placed at the uppermost position in your battery arena where the lighter hydrogen gas will collect.
  • Be definite, it too contains a protected vent cover to bar rain and bugs. Do not place your battery bank close to a gas water heater or other exposed flame apparatus that might flare up any unintended hydrogen buildup.
  • A battery box can be made with average 2 x 4 framing structure, with pressure handled plywood coating the internal planes. A hinged upper door is necessary for intermittent battery upkeep, and must contain a gasket to inhibit gases from penetrating the chamber.
  • As batteries waste ability with lesser temperatures, your batteries had better not be positioned absolutely on an icy un-insulated solid surface.
  • Compression preserved 2 x 4s on edge, spread out every 6 inches and sheltered by a fiberglass coated concrete sheet, creates an admirable stand for your battery box. This hefty sheet matter is retailed in maximum construction hoard stores as a support behind ceramic tile work in wet shower stands, and is generally offered in reduced 2-foot by 4-foot dimensions. By watchful research, you might be capable of consuming the complete piece minus cutting or joining.

If you can pay for extra costly gel or Absorbed Glass Matte (AGM) batteries, you will have further tractability in finding your battery bank; as these batteries do not requisite to be restocked and do not usually produce dangerous smokes.

how do you handle a week’s worth of cold gray windy rainy crappy NC weather?

Ok how do you handle a week’s worth of cold gray windy rainy crappy NC weather? With a pot of AWESOME clam chowder that’s how!

Steam open and save broth from 100 Cherrystone or Mahogany clams. Get them while they are on sale, and freeze the broth in quart containers. Don’t even bother with canned clams, clam juice, clam broth, nothing compares to the REAL DEAL but if you don’t have fresh clams, I guess you gotta use what you can get your hands on…

  • 2qts clam broth with clam meat. Separate clam meat and keep in fridge until needed.
  • 1qt heavy cream.
  • 1 1/2 white onion, finely diced.
  • 3-4 celery sticks finely chopped
  • 3-4 white potatoes, peeled and finely diced.
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped.
  • 1cup yellow corn (if desired).
  • 1lg spring onion finely chopped (also called salad onion, get them in February and March and freeze some).
  • 4slices bacon cooked crisp, drain on paper towel.
  • 3-4 bay leaves.
  • 1tbsp thyme.
  • 1/2tsp mace.
  • 1tsp white pepper.
  • salt to taste.
  • 2/3cup light butter roux.*

In a cast iron skillet fry the bacon until crisp, set aside. In the bacon grease saute the onion until it begins to turn clear, then add celery and corn (if desired) and cook until softened.

At the same time in a separate 3qt. pot, add the potatoes, garlic, and spring onion to the clam broth and bring to boil until potatoes are tender. Add bay leaves and thyme and mace during this time. Add white pepper, salt to taste.

Add the celery, onion, and corn mixture to the heavy cream in an 8qt pot, bring to boil and start reducing over medium heat. Crumble the bacon into the cream mixture.

*After adding celery and onion to the heavy cream in an 8qt pot, melt 1/2 stick butter in cast iron skillet, add wonder flour until you get a light roux, let this brown only slightly.

Add the butter roux to the cream mixture in the 8qt. pot, once the potatoes have reached the level of tenderness you like, add the potatoes and the clam broth to the cream mixture in the 8qt. pot and bring to boil. Boil for 30mins, reduce heat and add clams. Stir and simmer another 30mins then ladle into bowls, garnish with chopped chives or parsley, serve with fresh baked bread!

The financial side of Plexus

The financial side of Plexus is becoming harder for us to talk about because David and I are not sure how to bring it up without sounding like complete braggarts or just flat out liars because it does seem WAY too good to be true. But if you are that person who was like me, who is a momma who worked hard to contribute to their family, who enjoys feeling accomplished and has a strong drive, but also who struggled because at one point had to say no to certain things for the family because of financial reasons, who sacrificed so her babies could have…. listen up. Or maybe you are the dad who worked tirelessly for his family, who left for work before the kids woke up and got home after they went to bed, who did everything just to get ahead a tiny bit but sometimes just wished he had more freedom and wasn’t working for someone else.

I’m speaking directly to that mom and/or dad who dreams of something more, something bigger. Who believes their family, not just her or him, is destined for something more. I never dreamt of being a real millionaire or someone who had ZERO financial worry. I mean, that would be great! But what I wanted more than anything was to be able to buy my family things they wanted/needed and not cringe at the cost. I never wanted to say no to something my kids wanted to pursue because I couldn’t afford it. I never wanted to have to say no to going out to dinner because of our budget. I never wanted to have to tell my kids why we couldn’t take a family vacation this year. I never wanted to have to pray to make it to next payday and eat PB & J at the end of the pay period to survive. I wanted to be able to go to dinner and actually get tea if we wanted it instead of water, or buy that precious new dress for my baby at Target, or not have to space out my gas in my car. Little tastes of financial freedom..

I wanted that for my family. Plexus gave us freedom. I will be eternally grateful for that. I can’t even begin to put into words how that has changed our lives. If you are a dreamer, and you want that, please don’t wait any longer. Do this for you.. do this for them.

Praying for this poor baby!!

I don’t know where his posts keep going, so I am posting another to update on Thor.

11/4 at 9:20am: Just received a call from the vet. She said he is about the same. He continues to have a lot of saliva and mouth erosion. He is also jaundice due to liver failure (most likely, as she put it). She explained that force feeding him is uncomfortable for both him and the staff and wants to put in a feeding tube. She explained that he is high risk to go under the anesthesia due to his low WBC count and poor liver function, but if they don’t do this, he is even a higher risk of fatality.

So they will be putting him under tonight and inserting the feeding tube. She believes this will allow his mouth to heal and bring his levels back up since he will be getting more adequate nutrition. They are discounting this for us, but we still need any assistance financially for this. Please keep sharing Thor’s story and his youcaring page. Or contact Dr. Savino’s office directly.

UPDATE 3:40PM on 11/4:
Spoke with the vet. His feeding tube was inserted. She said that his throat is very swollen. She explained that she is very concerned about his mouth. When she touched his gums, even gently, they began bleeding profusely. She said this is not normal or good. She is giving him Vitamin K. She is hoping the feeding tube provides enough nutrition to reverse his liver failure, but with the bleeding- she thinks he might have sepsis. She explained that she will be running more blood work today to see if his levels improved from when I brought him in on Monday. She kept asking me on the phone if I knew what toxic substance he ate. She stated that various poisons can have bleeding effects such as this. She told me there is no guarantee that the feeding tube will work, but will be doing everything they can to save him.

As always, you guys have done so much. And I can’t thank you enough. Thor really is this communities baby! Please continue to share his page. More donations would greatly help this little guy!

UPDATE 11/5 at 9am:

Thor remains about the same. They are still awaiting the results of his blood work. She said that he seems to be doing ok with the tube. She explained that he stresses very easily- possibly due to the trauma his body has been through, and going under the feeding tube procedure was hard on him. She asked me to call around 4 for the results of his blood work. This will provide us with a more comprehensive understanding of what’s next. Keep sharing and donating! Ask your friends to share too! Thank you all

UPDATE 11/6 at 11:20am:

Spoke with the vet just now. She said he seems to be slowly improving. She said he is sitting up and breathing well. They pulled his IV line today because it was tweaked and uncomfortable for him. So they will be hydrating him by hand. She said that his lungs sounded clearer today. She explained that we are not out of the woods, but his blood cell count has been improving, as well. She will be rechecking his CBC tonight.

Good update guys! I’m gonna go visit after work. Keep sharing his page and sending good vibes to Thor!!!

UPDATE 11/6 at 4:45pm:

Just got to visit with Thor. Everyone in the office is saying what a fighter he is. Vet warned me that he is going to look bad because I haven’t seen him since Tuesday, but he looks good to them versus where he was yesterday. She said his jaundice is resolving, the feeding tube is doing its job. His counts are still up. His lungs/esophagus/breathing are still in rough shape, due to the swelling and bleeding of his gums and esophageal tissue. I got to pet him- he tries so hard to purr! He is such a sweet baby. Vet said he’s so used to being handled now, due to being handled by the staff, that he doesn’t mind it anymore. There are updated pictures in the post below.

UPDATE 11/8:

Got a call from the vet. She said Thor is doing great! His mouth is no longer bleeding, although there is still irritation there. She said he has been purring and trying to get pets from all the staff. She is going to do one more CBC, but stated that Thor can go with his foster VERY soon. We have a balance on the vet bill (I will know more tomorrow). So please continue to share and if you can still donate, every little bit helps.

You guys are wonderful. Thank you so much for the support, financially and emotionally by wondering and keeping up with this little mans health.
