8.5 mile drive


It was a really brutal RC truck drive in the 95F heat, set to 10 min/mile. Got cramps, nauseous, & dehydrated. The 1st charge with the accucell revealed it could probably go 12 miles on 5Ah. Consuming constant power instead of constant current would give slightly less range for the last 2 Ah.

The accucell uses the main power leads to measure voltage, so it measures slightly above the voltage from the balancing leads. The resistance in the balancing leads doesn't seem to impair it, though it could use a test to see how much current is going through the balancing leads.

The passive matrix display brings back memories of the very 1st laptops, 30 years ago. That was as good as it got.
