Hashing with Batteries!
#1
Solar Crypto Mining is sorted

Been slack but finally got my BatteryHasher cracking, need to load test the DC to DC converter that I'm using its an eBay job, 730watts 48v to 12v converter 
https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/48V-to-12V-D...2749.l2649 


Running an old mainboard with a RX470 Card for now & if it works i'll go to three RX580 8gig cards

This pic is a bit old now but the only one i have, card has been changed and cleaned up a bit but bloody happy so far.

Very Nice. Pete

What is step down converter that you have plugged into the power connector of the Motherboard? Ie Model that's a great way to get all of the different voltages to the motherboard

Working on the next 7s40p packs     ~2.5kWh

Waiting on 2000 Cells of unused Sony vt4 (2000mah 30A) ~ 15kWh      hehehehehe  More Power

I use one of these PICO's https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/NEW-DC-12V-2...2749.l2649 that some community members recommended, also found that some of the larger cloud mining companies also use them with there server powersupplies to run their rigs also. 

After a few hours run time looks like there will be an extra three months or so ROI about 2 dollars a day income for a 200 dollar outlay aussie dollars.

Yes, was waiting on new ones - that's this weeks task! They sent the wrong 'stud pattern' on the fan mounts so will have to mod everyone but the upside is they have a fatter motor and wider blads and blow heaps more air at lower rpm

Input - 5.75A @ 53.62V = 308.32W, Output - 21.8A @ 12.3V = 268.14W, Efficiency is 268.14 / 308.32 = 86.96% efficient
