    SELLING Li-Ion prismatic cells

    Why does that first picture look like the battery was chewed on? It's all dented and dinged up?

    New porn page.

    I had DNSBL disabled as it was causing too many false positives. I've turned it back on. We'll see if/how well it helps.

    Voltage(52v) showing between earth and neutral on output from inverter

    This is the key here. You can't just hard-wire the N+G bond because then when you're running on utility, your ground wire between mains panel and inverter becomes a current-carrying conductor (very bad). The N+G bond after inverter can only happen when running in off-grid mode (utility...

    We have ignition. TP5100 fiery fail

    The dodgiest RaspberryPi UPS in existence

    I have a few RPI that have lost power many times without UPS. I've never had one corrupt, guess I've been lucky...

    [Aus] Possibility for some cheap cells from these things.

    I'm guessing probably prismatics and not 18650s in there?

    Lawn Mower Starter Battery Part 2

    Highly disappointed with Battery Hookup

    Nope, don't get "preferential service"... When I order things, I wait for shipping just like everyone else. Sometimes orders arrive in a few days, other times I wait 2+ weeks. I've had good packaging and bad packaging. I've had my orders (multiple times) delivered to the wrong address by FedEx...

    Shed temperature

    You're asking about 37C? If I didn't open my container doors during the summer, it would probably hit 55C+ in there. I'm currently working on a solution to this and plan to install a small 5000BTU AC unit that should be able to handle it super efficiently. I'm also adding solar panels to cover...

    2170s without a tab

    Nope, that doesn't look fun... The 2170 cells I've used, the companies recycling and selling them laser-welded a cap on the positive end so it looks like a standard cell. I wouldn't even know what to recommend in your case unfortunately...

    Ups why tease me?

    That's happened to me before... Usually by that point it ends up flipping over to the next day unfortunately. It's a real letdown when you're excited waiting for something.
