Re: (ET) How NOT to check your batteries... Battery Charge / Monitor / maintainer
We need to find an 'inspired' Microcontroller Engineer (meaning EE & CS
skills) who wants to design PIC (or similar) microcontroller into a charge
controller with real time clock, alarm (piezo buzzer, etc), voltage readout,
and maybe temperature and current monitoring. [adding more features adds
some cost in hardware, and tedious software testing]
Or we could put a zener diode (try 6.2 volt, 5 watt for starters) on the
table, attach it to a PR2 bulb with solder, and attach one end to b+ and
one to B- on each battery.
B- Diode Bulb B+
Really. Since we have big T105's we could attach two per battery.
