    Source for good and cheap half cell panels (320...500 Wp) in Germany?

    Hi guys, looking for a good source of new(ish) panels preferably in half cell technology of high efficiency. Only need 1.5 - 2 kWp, so 4...6 maybe 8 panels. Can be new, can be used but not too old (max. 5 years i guess). For flat roof montage and not too big so that one person can handle them...

    Correlation of internal resistance (IR) and self discharge

    Hi all, it is generally agreed (i guess?) that there is a correlation of a li-ion cells quality (Soh) and its IR. In most cases an increasing IR indicates a decreasing Soh, decreasing capacitance and increasing self discharge rate (SDR). I recently tested all my salvaged 18650 with my new...

    New category:"Cell recycling and testing"?

    Hi all, i am missing a section/category for general Li-ion cell recycling and testing procedures. There are only categories for different cell chemistries, for testing equipment and chargers but nothing for the testing procedure, workflow of recycling. I concider this a major point for...

    Cause of heater-effect at around 4.0V and high self discharge at full voltage (4.2 ... 4.0V)

    Hi all, you probably all know the problem of so-called "heater cells" that tend to get (very) hot when charging above a specific voltage? Typically this voltage (when heating starts) is around 4.0V - sometimes a bit lower, rarely higher. On the other hand there are cells, that don't keep their...

    Account disappeared - and all my postings?

    Hi all, i already registered yesterday and posted a few posts, but in the evening my account had disappeared suddenly!? I was not able to log in nor was my username (the same as now, "paddy72") found by the machine. Also all my posts seem to have disappeared. What happened here???
