Replacing a dead iPhone battery

About a week ago, in preparing to run some errands, I plugged my iPhone 4S into the charger in my car so that I could stream Pandora while I drove. Oddly, a “this accessory may not be supported” message appeared on-screen; when I unplugged and re-plugged the iPhone to the charger, it didn’t reappear, so I didn’t think anything more of it … until a half hour later, when the iPhone again alerted me, this time ...

New electrolyte promises to rid lithium batteries of short-circuiting dendrites

Dendrites – thin conductive filaments that form inside lithium batteries – reduce the life of these cells and are often responsible for them catching fire. Scientists working at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) of the US Department of Energy claim to have produced a new electrolyte for lithium batteries that not only completely eliminates dendrites, but also promises to increase battery effi ...

Mini Digital Barometric Altimeter

I found on Ebay very nice, small 12v 23A battery holders for PCB mounting style and decided to fit the SMALL DIGITAL BAROMETRIC ALTIMETER just on the back of the holder. So basically this is the same schematic as the SMALL DIGITAL BAROMETRIC ALTIMETER, however I moved some of the connections to different MCU pins because of PCB space limitations. In spite of the small size the functional remains the same. – ...

Lights off ! WiFi home lights monitoring and control

Story Idea and reason One of my long running projects, “lights off” comes from the need to know : “Did I turned off my bathroom light?” ; “This light are on for too much time, I wonder how much I am paying for it”. Without wanting to rewire my house, I came up with designing the WiFi switches, battery powered. Switch unit  To do so, the wall switch is controlling the Mega’s inputs that is setting and resett ...
