"....Hi Dodgy, welcome back👍 I see you've been tickling the grey cells. Brainstorming👍 "The web is full of low-battery detection circuits ... "..."
Yes - I've been thinking about reversing Taycols. The diode rectifier method is very simple, but does drop a volt or two, and I was wondering about a more elegant solution - which I think I have now. Unfortunately no one else has ever wanted to do this, so there are no prior examples on the web that I can find. Apart from this one now...
I will put something up on another thread, because it's only peripherally connected with battery back-up....
On a slightly more relevant note! DHL advised me they'd loaded my bits n pieces on the truck this morning😊 So Experiments continue at the weekend. Cheers, Doug 😎 PS now 19.5° in the shade and climbing. Sky gone from duck egg blue to haze grey. The USN gets everywhere!😉
Young at heart - slightly older in other places 😉 Cheers Doug
Only 18c here today in SA - sun shining with no cloud although winter is our rainy season in the Cape - minimum never lower than 10c at night and when "Berg Winds" blow - anything up to 24c midwinter during the day. Weather a bit better than I recall in Bournemouth.
Once again we all seem to have hijacked a thread !
