ravijojila801135dWhat kind of led uses that much power =)
Mousey11897135dHah that's awesome, weirdly enough I was watching the episode of West Coast Customs last night where they modified a Slingshot so Shaq could fit in it (spoiler - they had to cut the frame in half and add about 10" of extensions to it).
The EL wire's a great idea for visibility, would probably work better than a hi-vis in the dark
zymk937135d@ravijojila yeah the Battery life is cap because there is a tiny inverter (I think that’s what it’s called) that coverts the 3.7vDC to 120vAC for the EL wire to light up. I’m thinking that the inverter circuitry might not be super efficient cause even the default double-AA battery layout only lasted like 8-10 hours and I think they were 2200-2500 mAh batteries in parallel. (?)
I’m a serious noob at this, and I can’t remember off the top of my head right now, if series or parallel doubles capacity and keeps the single battery voltage?
ralnivar1245135d@TerraNimbus-io You could measure the voltage of the cell when it is empty", if the voltage is around 3.1 then the battery would be empty.
Series = combined voltage and parallel = combined capacity.
N0-Flux-Given1401134d@TerraNimbus-io Yep, also with parallel batteries you could draw more current (all more load) at same voltage.
