Battery Charger From A 555 & A Handful of Parts

Best survivalist electronic design I have ever seen. Imminently useful.

All it needs is a shunt that can be tapped for monitoring by a PC somewhere in there.

Another thing that is interesting about that video I posted earlier, is the guy suggests to elements within Israel, they get rid of Bibi, just as they got rid of Rabin.

Then he wonders why he was canceled from that show.

Bob -

I wish I was a better electronics engineer and could come up with designs like this one. The guy that did this had a profound understanding of the components involved. Luckily people with this kind of talent are willing to share innovative ideas with others without even trying to charge for them.

"555 Timer Applications Source Book: With Experiments" is available at Amazon. The range of uses is amazing. I used one in a phase shifter circuit, from Popular Electronics, for a guitar playing friend, back when (sounded horrible). Your comment is on target - to create your own application of the device shows technical mastery.

A little bit of tech humor for a Friday, from the sad but true department:

Something you might want to consider adding to your survival supplies: coconut oil. Virtually non-perishable at room temperature, super antioxidant (therefore somewhat protective against radiation damage) and you can buy it by the bucketload. You could probably make "ice cream" with it using condensed milk and sugar.

Tex-

I wholly agree. its one thing to simply copy and build and another to thoughtfully design something towards a specific outcome.

Not only did Mike share his design but he also simplified it to make it easier for the layperson. praiseworthy indeed.

Tex, look into the Raspberry Pi.

HalibetLector said...

I like the BeagleBoard, myself. Faster than Raspberry Pi, been around longer (better supported), and uses just as little power.

GlucoseBoy-
The other benefit of coconut oil (which is high in lauric acid) is that, combined with vitamin D and a high protein diet, I've found that my hair is regrowing, with colour. I found that if I drop off either the Vitamin D (4k IU per day) or the coconut oil (we only use it for frying), then my hair would fall out again. Both my grandfathers were bald, so I had really resigned myself to losing the lot, but after 3 months I started to see a difference, and now 12 months later its much thicker, and now I have coloured streaks in my grey! While losing my hair doesn't worry me, I find it fascinating that this is occurring.

GlucoseBoy said...

L- that's unsurprising given how well coconut oil supports cellular energy production.
