I think you might be correct!

I have never charged any RC nicad or nimh that had a lot of cells, nothing over 12v. Looking at the charger now, I see it can charge up to 25 cells! WOW! It should be pretty good on a 100w 12vdc...

48v bdgr - nmc - 80ah - 3.9kwh

After testing the old 48v pack, I found the old 12v Duralast batts might still be pretty good. The cheap HF tester showed 400 to 550 Cold Cranking Amps. These are rated at 800 CCA new. So, I plan to...

Since we lost our heat-pump hot water heater, we've been burning oil to make hot water.
The burn runs are done on demand "Google, turn on hot water" when we have extra demand.

48 volts still there?? 10 years later?

We had a winter storm recently and lost Grid power.
I wondered if those old 12 volt car batteries (marked October 2010) still had any juice in them.?.
The back-up system still works! Got some...

This thread is not as old as me, but it's old!

I rarely use the attic fan these days. The basement is nice in the summer.
(Still use the basement fan, if the Radon gets too high).
We keep it dehumidified and the slab is cool enough that's it's...

Yeah, that's where it's at, on the floor. That's why I keep my detector down
about 8 or 10 inches off the flood.
My home was built in 1956, so we don't need to pump IN any air. LOL!

Yeah, some people call them Radon Fans, but I'm not a fan of that.

Radon, it's not safe!

Wow, 13 PCi/L is too high for comfort. Means you need some air moved out of your basement. My kid's house had about those readings and one radon pump fixed it.

My son-in-law had this one for a...
