RE: Electrical Question

All I know is that most all alarms will sound if low voltage is detected

RE: Blow-by Yamaha ef3000ise

Above is a perfect candidate for blowing oil all over the place !! Some engines will tolerate it, some won't......trust me ! What the hell is the dipstick for.

RE: Laptop battery difference Metal hydride vs Lith ion

Ok I contacted the seller about returning it, and he said the new battery actually is a lion battery and it is perfectly safe, He said if it fails to operate correctly he will replace it w/ the same. And it is operating to full satisfaction, including capacity performance. How can I complain......a $11.95 battery that seems to be operating to full performance. So I give it up. Thanks for all the replies.

RE: Blow-by Yamaha ef3000ise

Confusing statement about the oil level. Are you filling it by capacity or dipstick mark ? No matter what the place where you got it says, NEVER fill above dipstick level or you could get the problem you have

RE: How many volts....

Depending on the soc of the batteries, anything from 12.7 to 14.1 Where did this come from ? When you obviously don't know the answer, don't answer ! Most anyone knows that 12.7 is not a charging voltage. Charging voltage would be between 13.2 and 14.6. Any charger that shows a 12.7 output is junk. BTW, wasn't that the question ?

RE: Laptop battery difference Metal hydride vs Lith ion

i would return it, not going to be even close to the performance. Humm, I thought 5200 ma would outperform 4600 ma.

RE: Laptop battery difference Metal hydride vs Lith ion

Assume you received a Nickel Metal .hydride ( NiMh ) battery.....older technology.....reliable but less capacity than a LiOn battery and perhaps a different charging profile. Personally I'd be a bit perturbed to receive them in place of the OEM Lithium-ion battery. Strange thing is, the new MHD battery is 5200 MA, 800 more than the old Li ion at 4400 ma. So, while all seems to be operating well, my guestion is still about the safety of it all. I am glad that its not the other way around, because those li ion batteries can be very scary if all is not correct. The other thing I am thinking, why do the 2 completely different chemistry batteries fit ?????? Very strange situation, at best ! But I'll hope for the best.

RE: AM/FM antenna wiring

I am in the process of replacing my TV AM/FM antenna and want to use a Winegard Air 360.  One problem is that Winegard recommends using coaxial cable to run from the antenna to the radio.  The existing wire is just that, wire with audio plugs. Will plain wire be an adequate substitute for coaxial cable for this purpose? coax cable is used where there mite be a problem w/ noise or interference. So if it works w/o it you don't need it. But if its not difficult I'd pull new coax rather than wish I had. Are you sure its not coax, because most audio cables are using coax for the same reason

Laptop battery difference Metal hydride vs Lith ion

I received a new battery for my Dell, It fit fine, charged up fine, both 11.1 volts pc runs fine. But after installing I noticed the new one is an MHD, and the one I took out was a Li ion. Does anyone know if this is safe or could cause any damage ?

RE: Mintance Free Deep Cycle

So you want to buy really cheap batteries and then ask if they will last and perform well? What is cheap about this ? Quote: 711.00 for four, I believe was the price.

RE: AGM Maintenance Questions

And at the end of all your spending money on hi $ batteries and way overthinking the charging aspect of it all, you are going to find, as many have already, that your hi $ Agms will not last any longer than the cheap ole LA 6volts from cosco. And when using a PD converter charger, batteries just don't use any water. Under RV deep cycle use, AGM batteries will dry out in a relatively short life, and no way to replace water. So, at least do your expensive overpriced AGMs a favor and charge them w/ a PD charger,.......the only charger that has real technology built in !! Yeah, lets talk abouy those that don't have a clue ???

RE: Cleaning out a DIY septic tank

RE: Six Volt MH battery in a tractor...

You could use all 4 in parallel if you want more crank time

RE: Do flooded batteries prefer 10 percent or higher discharge?

I to would wonder why you would be discharging a battery for no reason ?? If you think that is somhow beneficial to a battery, you are grossly misinformed

RE: 6 Volt RV batteries

" An amazing statement! If they took a long time to get that bad, and you kept using them till now, then it would seem you might only need one 12v battery to get the job done. Why buy four new 6s if you only actually need one 12v batt? This is all very peculiar! This statement is both amazing and peculiar !!

RE: Black Water Tank Missing Capacity

It is what it is. Capacity calulated from dementions, and usable capacity from real life reality, can be 2 very different capacities. Its always been that way.
