Re-Use, Individual Cells from 18V NiCad

Seems that with a bit of randomnity in mfging, some cells in an 18V battery might fail before others. With that in mind, I'm trying to re-use individual cells after a pack craps out.  Test 1  Battery pack from a "drill master" which I got for  ~$2 at a thrift store. Google informs that this is a harborfreight tool, so expectations are low.  Upon disassembly of the pack, 1 of the spot-weld connections between cells had broken.  Since I don't currently have a 1.5v source, I'm using a 3v  source to charge 2 cells in series. Only charging for a few minutes at a time. Currently, this 2 cell set will light a couple xmas lites for a few minutes after charging for a few min. I'm uncertain of the calibration of my v-meter, but it currently indicates 2.65v for these 2 cells. Depending upon the source, NiCads should max out at 1.45 to 1.65 v per cell. Test 2: Pending- Ryobi drill batteries I'm uncertain how to get a good read on the accuracy of my meter without a high-end meter to compare against. Suggestions? Hopefully, I can find a proper 1 cell nicad charging device.  Thoughts? concerns? insights?

Farewell - Jules Verne's fiery demise.

Europe's first Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV) Jules Verne successfully completed its six-month ISS logistics mission today with its controlled destructive re-entry over a completely uninhabited area of the South Pacific. Following a final deorbit burn at 14:58 CEST which slowed its velocity by 70 m/s, the ATV entered the upper atmosphere at an altitude of 120 km at 15:31 CEST. It broke up at an altitude of 75 km with the remaining fragments falling into the Pacific some 12 minutes later. The words and pictures are from the ESA website, but I got first notice from SpaceWeather.

Elefanternas passion för matematik och naturvetenskap - Edublogs

Http://isabellica.edublogs.org/2013/03/09/elefanternas-passion-for-matematik-och-naturvetenskap/ UB studenter att göra lärande mer hands-on, tillämpliga för pre-collegiate studenter Den endast lärande hinder Lavone Rodolph stött på gymnasiet försökte kombinera vad han lärt sig i klassrummet med det verkliga livet, sade han. Då var utbildning ibland immateriella bortom tjäna ett betyg. “Om jag lära ett koncept i klass, fysik eller kemi, ibland jag inte visste hur jag skulle använda det i mitt personliga liv eller jag visste inte nytta av lärande det än passerar en test,” sade Rodolph. Rodolph-nu en doktorand i datateknik – försöker förbättra lärandet för studenter vid sitt alma mater, Hutchinson Central teknisk högstadium i Downtown Buffalo, så de inte behöver möta den samma problem som han gjorde. Rodolph arbetar med tvärvetenskaplig vetenskap och teknik partnerskap (ISEP), ett femårigt program som leds av UB. Dess huvudsakliga fokus är att förbättra upplevelsebaserat lärande i naturvetenskap, teknik, teknik och matematik fält (STEM) för studenter i Buffalo offentliga skolor. Forskning har visat att en betydande andel − − 33 procent av barnen börjar tappa intresset för vetenskap så unga som 8 år. Av middle school ökar andelen till nästan hälften av dessa barn, enligt National Center for STEM grundutbildning. ISEP syftar till nytändning i en passion för vetenskap och andra STEM ämnen genom att erbjuda mitten och gymnasieelever en mer praktisk, tvärvetenskapligt förhållningssätt till lärande. Det innebär planering studiebesök att stärka förståelsen av lärande material och utformning laboratorieförsök som illustrerar abstrakta begrepp. Dessa aktiviteter gör lärande STEM ämnen kul, ett mål som Rodolph anser vara högsta prioritet för ISEP. “Huvudmålet är nr 1, att göra något kul STEM fält på högstadiet nivå,” sade Rodolph. “Sätt från högstadiet nivå, de vill fortsätta det på gymnasienivå. Och igen, målet på gymnasienivå är att göra det roligt och utmanande, så från gymnasienivå, de kan fullfölja ett STEM fält på kollegial nivå.” Som en examen assistent, har Rodolph hjälpt med samordna lärare i flera projekt. Dessa inkluderar undervisning Android-programmering, instruera eleverna på att skapa kol-dioxid-drivna racecars och planerar en resa till Buffalo Museum of Science att se hur DNA kan användas i rättsmedicinska undersökningar. Sedan starten 2005 har expanderat ISEP från två pilotskolor till 12 hög-behov mitten och gymnasier. Under 2011 fick det $9,8 miljoner euro i finansiering från National Science Foundation (NSF). − och andra stödjande partner som arbetar med tre viktiga partner − Buffalo offentliga skolor, Buffalo State College och buffel Museum of Science Roswell Park Cancer Institute, ISEP syftar till att uppnå sitt mål att förbättra elevernas lärande genom att samla resurserna. Lärarutbildningen är en stor del av ISEP’S plan. För att bättre förbereda lärare att göra STEM utbildning mer relevant för eleverna, kan ISEP och dess partner lärare att bli studenterna själva. Under somrarna, lärare utveckla deras professionella kompetens genom att arbeta med UB doktorander och tillägna sig färdigheter inom forskning och utredning undervisning. Under läsåret, både akademiker och studenter hjälper lärare utforma och genomföra mer hands-on lärande i klassrummet. “[ISEP] mål är att ge lärarna en ökad professionalisering, öka utbildning lärarna själva, så de kan få sin utbildning tillbaka till skolor och skapa bestående fördelar för studenter, säger Phillip Tucciarone, en junior kemiteknik stora. Han har varit involverad i ISEP för tre terminer och designar främst och genomför “hands-on laborationer” samordna lärare. ISEP har gjort framsteg sedan dess tillkomst, enligt UB News Center. För exempelvis studenter i ISEP klassrum på Native American Magnet School, en av de två pilot skolorna, har varit ungefär “30 procent mer sannolikt än distriktet jämnåriga att uppnå kompetens på den åttonde klass stat vetenskap examen”, enligt UB News Center. Innan sådan förbättring, var Native American Magnet School på listan skolor Under registrering granskning (SURR). SURR skolor är lågpresterande skolor som inte uppfyller statliga normer, enligt New York utbildning utrikesdepartementets hemsida. Native American Magnet School kan vara stängda, sade Joseph Gardella, chef för ISEP och John och Frances Larkin professor i kemi vid UB, via e-post. Native American Magnet School togs bort från listan i 2009, fyra år efter det blev inblandad i ISEP. Se skolans akademiska förbättring bland åttonde klassare har varit en av de många minnesvärda upplevelser för Gardella.

Re-using 'company logo' shirts; I have a number of shirts, both polo/golf and button-down with logos over the breast.

I'm looking for some way to re-use the shirts, as they are pretty good quality shirts, so  don't want to just cut them into rags.  I'd rather get some wear out of them, but not advertise the company.  The emroidery is very strong, so picking it out destroys the base fabric.  Other than something else to iron over or taking them to a commercial embroidery machine, how else might I use them?

battery with easy charging method? Answered

I am looking for the best way to implement a battery supply for my project. It needs to be able to fit in an enclosure measuring 5 x 2.5 x 2 inches. It needs to have a voltage in the range of 7 to 12 volts and have a fair amount of capacity. (maybe around 1500 - 5000 mAh?) The battery(s) also should be easy to charge, such as through a regulated voltage supply, with no complex control circuitry. It can be multiple batteries. I am mainly looking for the best type of battery here. (NiMH, SLA, Lithium, etc.) Any suggestions?

Ideas for restoring a steamer trunk on a budget?

I acquired this great steamer trunk today with the intent of turning it into a coffee table/storage trunk for my growing collection of jadeite glassware.  However, I was so excited about finding it that I didn't inspect it as closely as I should have, and as a result, I've now got a very rusty steamer trunk on my hands - in some places the rust got so bad that it ate through the metal entirely, showing the wood beneath.   Now, as a college student, I simply just don't have the budget to get it professionally restored, and I'm okay with that; I'm looking at it as more of a stopgap than an investment.  But, I was wondering if there was something else I could do to fix it up?  I considered stripping off the remaining tin sheeting and using a rust-stopper on the hinges, etc, priming the exposed wood, and then simply painting over the entire thing. Any suggestions, tips, etc, are very much appreciated!

The motherboard needs to be there in order for anything to work. I am wondering if there is a pin I can short similar in fashion to a computer power supply.  Any suggestions?

I will gladly admit that there are a lot of people out there that could not handle a car that was even a little bit more complex because they can't handle a car now.  You might ask "Why fix what isn't broken?"   Why make cars faster?  Why use GPS if maps work fine?  Because it makes stuff easier.

Customized Alarm Clock

What I want to do is this, -get rid of my alarms stupid sounds -insert a custom sound -do it cheap -and make it small enough I can still put it in a custom casing (the casing is the easy part, I'll have no issue making that.) I have looked around and have seen several ways to hack alarm clocks but I can't see how any of them would help me out with this particular problem. The way I see it I will probably need to rewire the clock so that it sends power to an external device when the speakers are supposed to go off. The only other way I can think of is having a small computer with one of those pre-programmed clocks but that would be more expensive than buying the sound recording clocks and a bigger pain to fit into the casing. I also think I heard someone talk about making homemade circuits, I don't know if that would work at all but it's worth mentioning. I would like to be able to find easy to follow instructions that are CLEAR and not super complicated. Any help would be appreciated! BTW, yes, I have looked at the sound recording clocks online and they all look like crap or are way to expensive to bother with.

Cellular NiMH battery pack; can they be charged directly ?

I have some perfectly good Nokia battery packs from useless 5165 phones (Model "bms-2s"). They are 3.6 - 3.7V NiMH and have 4 flat copper contacts which 'make' with the phones by sliding on. The Phones have matching 'teeth' and happily 'smart' charge either these or the newer LI batteries. (Clear pic here: http://www.jpldisplays.com.au/catalog/images/CPB-BLS2N.jpg ) I want to know if it is OK to simply connect the matching output from the charger across the +/- terminals (the 2 outer ones AFAIK...) and charge them directly ? These work great to power LEDs and I already made a 5165 LED torch, but it was a pain to do and I'd rather just use the batteries naked. Thanks for any info !

Knowing the use of it is another way to know where to find it.
