ANGELIQUE / HELLRAISER BLOODLINE
how to make your pc look like ironman's computer
I've now rebuilt this desulfator with a switch that disconnects both the live and neutral mains lines and added a small PSU board from an old phone charger that runs an LED. I now plug this into a 24hr timer set to turn on for 30mins then off for 1 hour.I'm currently looking into adding a temperature activated switch that will sound an alarm and cut power to the desulfator side if the temp rises too much. I am however trying to keep it as simple as posible with as little cost and electronic assembly as possible.
Persiverance+your guide+new charger = restored batteryThe Honda battery is now holding an almost full charge, roughly 90-95% but good enough for me. Had to replace the original charger as it failed to power up. After further investigation it turns out the new charger can only charge batteries between 20Ah to 50Ah max so anything below this and the charger thinks the battery has failed and cuts the charge.Battery charged up, connected up 2 20W hallogen bulbs and both are still bright 20mins later a big thank you, Eslam Eldeknawy
erm... another update. I... err... I may have killed the batteries, used them in an R/C car in parallel for more amps. Long story short, the rear drive of the R/C got bust/destroyed so the car in storage till i could rebuild. took it out today to check something out and, like a Doofenshmirtz, had forgot to disconnect the SLAs. Going to have to scrounge parts and rebuild defulfator (stripped it for another project) and a try a few other techniques first then this. fingers crossed.

Doofenschmirtz here forgot what CCA was. Confusion over, it cranking amps. As soon as I hit google I remembered before i could type it in. (Hey its late and I'm tired) (=)

Found a Honda GTX9-BS battery with a confusing Rating (to me it is). Reads like this 12V 8Ah 8.4Ah(20HR) / 135A (CCA) Also found a generic 12v 5Ah SLAGeneric is now charging as normal now. The Honda is not. Charges for 20~30 mins then charger says its full. When tested it only lasts 3~5 mins tops. By the look of it it may have had it but, until it stops charging altogether (or explodes on me, in which case I won't have a choice), I'm not giving up.Great 'ibble!!!
