It still works?!? That's crazy haha! Did you ever let the countdown get to zero? There's an easter egg in there for you... ;-)
Here's a video of what were talking about if anyone's interested
I wonder if one day, these cheap marketing platforms will ever get a grip on the false advertising which plagues them.
Take these 18650 cells for example (do not buy these!)
They're being advertised as 63000mah which is so far from technically possible, it's...
Pro tip for ESR on the MCC.
If a cell fails the workflow because of high ESR, take the cell out, clean the ends and re run the test.
After almost 6000 cells tested through my MCC's, cells with high internal resistance will fail twice on ESR, cells which simply have dirt, glue and crap on one or...
Any fellow Amateur Radio operators out there?
I'm buying my big inverter in a couple of weeks and I'm just accepting the fact that it's going to generate noise on the HF bands.
I'm wondering if anybody has panels and an inverter and is NOT receiving RFI from it? If so which brand and...
Video discussing the changes I've made to cell processing now that I'm using the Megacell Chargers and an RC3563
@Wolf gets a shout-out as well! ;-)

I used Google Translate on my phone to change the language to English in the settings and to have a quick scan through the manual.
Doesn't tell you actually how to use it which I found quite strange but what was interesting is that it said most new 18650s have an IR of 30-60.
Cheers Daniel. It's working perfectly now over USB and I've created a dashboard. I'll have a play with this for a while then I'll revisit the serial link in a couple of weeks. Nice job on the ISO, thanks for all your time and hard work on this (y) 🍻
My turn :-)
Downloaded the ISO today, couldn't get serial comms to work through the uart despite making the max2323 adapter so resorted to USB and /dev/hidraw0 which works reasonably well but with a few errors. I have a cheap clone inverter!!
I have basic comms now with inverter but the link to...
Ah ok. Well in that case, heres another theory. Could it be possible that, with the packs being stored on there sides, a heater cell can get so hot that it melts the solder which in turn runs down the positive end cap onto the negative wall and causes a dead short. This would explain the fuses...
