RE: Powermax 75 amp converter/charger

A precision 10 ppm zener diode can be used as. A go no-go tester. Need an adjustable power supply and No Meaning Zero ripple

RE: Firman W02981- Any feedback?

I ran a generator 24/7 for three months. A Yamaha 5500. Even on 15 cent gallon diesel it was costly because of 90 mile runs to get 200 gallons of fuel. Constant A/C is no trivial matter. I was diving the Chinchorro reef near Belice.

In the age of cigarette smoking, I used to blanch in horror at the enormous size of the blue clouds especially if they were backlit by sunlight. I remember how far the smoke traveled if the smoker blew the smoke or coughed. The analogy is useful. If the virus was like smoke I remember gagging as I threaded my way through the bar to the dining room. Supposedly the virus is like the smoke: Only when the concentration the density of smoke gave a person a headache: The virus can be deadly. i remember

RE: Onan Marquis 5500 put out too much voltage

The motor would have to be screaming fast to put out that voltage

RE: Foam air filter disintegrating, clogging carb, alternatives?

Put it in storage with a new dry filter and change to genuine KN filter oil.

#8 in the first Salk Beta trial Hayward, CA. March 1953. We were called "Pioneers". If a person needs "proof" just how reckless our immortal youth are, spend an hour on You Tube, and see the immortals performing some of the stupidest stunts imaginable. Covid? Masks? Distancing? Be wary where young people may congregate

RE: Preliminary 7.5 earthquake

Whatever one does, put socks and shoes on if the ground is wet. Park utilities are underground. The wires are *not* connected correctly. Electrocution can happen with bare feet and an insulated trailer skin that has a ground through the hookup. Avoid rumors. Especially regarding Tsunamis. There have been a pair in recent history -- one that flooded lowlands in Zihuantanejo, the other in La Manzanilla Jalisco. Both were so slow residents carried furniture to higher ground. The offshore trench is so close it does not allow a surge to build up.

RE: Decent inexpensive modified sine wave inverter

Since I started preferential choosing of low voltage accessories feeding highly filtered DC to accessories of the same voltage has lessened my concern. I still use the Trace 4024 for the freezers when public power fails during a tropical storm. But the Respironics BIPAP is fed straight battery at night. That is one accessory that I am over cautious with. I wish the stupid SOLA line conditioner did not consume 107 watts quiescent.. Over a 60 day period it knocks me into the 200% tariff rate. My Respironics 12 volt brick becomes distressingly hotter when used with the Trace inverter. But I circumvented that. The cost of running 150 meters of 4 gauge cu underground is beyond my ability. The ground is 80% rock.

RE: Trick the WFCO converter into not entering 14.4v?

Switch WIFFLE off Switch a genuine power supply on Megawatt 400.cleaner more stable output.

Too Much A Novice To Ask This On Electronics forum

Conversion to wireless sound? BLUETOOTH I realize a little chip can allow a PC or laptop to broadcast a bluetooth signal. Does another gizmo exist that will turn an amplified speaker into a wireless speaker? Like a Polk 10" subwoofer?

RE: Decent inexpensive modified sine wave inverter

I agree! But fussy me likes PSW. With a group 31 dedicated Lifeline battery and Megawatt I have a poor man's UPS. I chose a Samlex PSW because long ago the MSW inverters created distracting visual artifacts on my monitors. Is this still the case?

RE: Preliminary 7.5 earthquake

A lot of México is built on landfill over an old lake. A jolting sets the land wiggling like a bowl of geletina. Hills like chapultepéc and pedregal (rocky) are indeed rock and barely feel a shaking during a major quake. From Salina Cruz to Acapulco fill ground can shake badly. If traveling right after a quake be very careful. I rounded a curve on Mex 200 south of Puerto Angel in 2003 and found 80% of the roadway gone -- slid away into an arroyo. I eased past then flashed 3 times with headlights at an approaching "pipa" a tanker truck. He jammed on his brakes. Chofers de traylors (truck drivers) use the 3 headlight flashing as a universal danger signal. Repeated2-flashes seem to be "I have the right of way" Believe it.

RE: Space Station Lithium Batteries

Internet inconnectivity. Well solar cells started out stupidly expensive. Link was white paper with regard to resistance to harsh environment.

RE: Refrigerator Interior fan ?

X5 CPU fan because they are ball bearing not sleeve fans. I have one inside my 24 volt freon refer and all 120 freezers. Reduces cold spot freezer burn. 2 watts 40mm

RE: Bad Converter Charger

Charging CONCORDE LIFELINE at their max rate makes their cost worthwhile. Five hours versus ten. Then stare at the several thousand dollars for the generator. Myself, I stare at the thirty two dollars for fuel each time I need to drive to the gas station. Plus time plus hassle This isn't a set piece evaluation. You need to do your own audit. Yes, half an acre of solar panels is neat until a tropical storm brings a week of dense clouds or golf ball size hail greets glass.

RE: Bad Converter Charger

Configure the cost Generator wearout Fuel including transportation Intangible: extra time babysitting running generator Against the money and time installing new batteries What do you come up with? Versus saturated voltage bulk charging? Prepare yourself for a shock.

Space Station Lithium Batteries

RATZ I LOST THE LINK..... The space station lithium batteries they are EVA changing today have 3.7 times the capacity per pound as commercial lithium batteries. Designed to last 10 years with daily cycling. I post this with the hope that this technology will follow in the tracks of solar panels. When I got the panels for Quicksilver, I remarked that $300 for a 50 watt Kyocera was sorta steep, people laughed and said "Don't hold your breath"
