Then i must have misunderstood it. The switch is where it should be. :)
Please use a fuse with these 18650s. They can deliver about 15 amps of current when shorted. That will melt your cables and could possibly start a fire. If I am not mistaken, your positive lead from the 18650 is soldered to the powerswich? So you need to leave the device switched on while charging then.A better way is to put the switch on the output of the protection board.
My thoughs exactly.
A car's roofplate is quite thin steel. Some common sense and caution should be used while transporting this way.Having said that: This is a brilliant idea! Thanks for sharing!p.s. That poor Civic has a rough life...
This stand looks brilliant!There is 1 drawback. You can't display bottles with a real cork for a longer period, because the cork will dry and the wine will go bad.With these twist-cap bottles though, this problem doesn't exist. :)
Count me in.Workshop, tech and outdoor.
How to Make Arduino VU Meter ( LED Logo)
It would be nice to see the outcome of that. :)
Thanks for your wonderfull comment! :)I agree with you completely on the privacy topic. It's best to protect your kids somewhat for the drawbacks of internet exposure.

Nice one!Maby I will try this. Cheers!
Make a Cool Light from a Whiskey Bottle
Always a pleasure to help.I don't think connecting your kit to a multiplexed car will do harm. You maby end up with some fault codes.Make sure if you load the wires with high power resistors to use cables that are rated for the load.We use a 'dummy trailer' in our workshop. Nothing more than a board with trailerlights corresponding with the 13 pins on the cars socket. Works on all cars. :)It's a great thing cars use these multiplex circuits. A lot of luxury features on modern cars are not possible or would requier a lot more wires. A great topic indeed!
How are the LED's performing on this car?Most younger cars have trailer lights controlled through a electronic computer with diagnosis possibilities, a CAN connection and a warning system which detects broken light bulbs.If that's the case, your LED's will perform somewhat funny because not enough current is drawn from te electronics.
Thanks for sharing.I have one in my reciever as well. It's powered off my mediastreamer's USB port. The main use is to stream the audio from my laptop to my reciever since it has no HDMI.
Nice one! Another cool project would be a 3D recreation of the Queen 1 album art. With led spotlight. ?
Oh, that's not quite what i meant...In step 4 you also placed a video where the blinking leds are visible. I totally missed that one. :)That was more my question. What the endresult would look like. I guess we were lost in translation somewhere. :) Thanks for the effort in putting together the 2 extra video's.
Nice project. But do you have a picture of how the LED's are placed? It's not clear to me now. I'm working on something similar. still awaiting parts. I will share the 'ible here when i'm done.
How To Build a Birdhouse from Pallets
You can buy a bluetooth OBD2 interface for around $4,- on Ebay. search for ELM 327. Works perfectly!
DIY Aux Input for Stock Car Head Unit
Good luck with that. I'm interested in your result. Please leave a message if things worked out as planned. :)
FM transmitter is ok, but the sound quality is not all that.
Noise-dampening Bluetooth Headphones (15$)
Love the idea. I am tempted to brainstorm about a solution that does not need tubes at all. :)
LED "Vacuum" Tubes
That's some dedication! If i would build my kids one, it will be a lot smaller since my house isn't big enough for this beauty.Who knows. :)
My wife told me if I would run out of inspiration to build a similar house for my two kids.This one is amazing! Full of inspiration. So if I would ever have too much time on my hands...
I'm sure you'll find a way in the end. Never stop fiddling around. :)
Wood Barbie dollhouse
If you use the keywords as described you will have no trouble finding it...
Nice fix for your problem.My laptop is also connected to my TV. My amplifier does not support HDMI though, so I was not able to get the sound from my laptop to my amp.With the stick used here it is possible. Power comes from my mediaplayer. But most TV'S have USB so you can also use that port.A 3.5mm to stereo tulip cable is plugged into my amplifier.Best of all is you can pair your phone to your amplifier as well. Highly versatile!
Thanks for your input.The himbox I found is priced around 20 pounds? that's rather expensive compared to my $2,- solution... You can always choose to order such a stick and use it like it was originally designed. I wrote about this in the ible.
Goed zo. Ben benieuwd!Deel je resultaat maar als reactie. :)
Thanks! It would be a nice project to transfer it from breadboard to PCB and give it a nice enclosure.I just bought me a breadboard a few months ago and expect to be fiddling around with it in the future. :)
Buying a new head unit is the easy way. But where is the fun in that? ;)The kind of head unit i have sells for around $60,- here. If you'd like bluetooth, you pay around $100,-You could buy a cheaper make and model, but you get what you pay for.This Instructable can be used as a base to build your own mod into your head unit. Also, what if you got a factory radio that's embedded in your car's electronics? With information in the central info display for example. Maby someone can upgrade a factory mounted unit with my idea. I will surely try so if i would buy a car with a factory head unit without bluetooth.
The device is listed as unbranded/generic.Search for "bluetooth music reciever" on Ebay and you should find it.

Make sure your discs are thick enough to withstand another 60.000 km or so. The discs i come across everyday wear out at the same pace the pads do. Or are just above the minimum thickness.Please use a tourqe wrench to tighten the wheels.If you are unsure about your work, ask a mechanic to inspect it.
