This memory jogging discussion got me to thinikkng about my poor dead 1300 Graphine pak.
So with youthful abandon I just plugged it into a raw 12v power supply.

Ta da I got enough cell volts to GET PAST the Charger checks !

So I let it go for ~ 1/2 hr Each cell was reporting a reasonable 4+ v but !!!
as I leaned in to check it ... IT WAS HOT yet not distorted.

I'll check it again this evening to see if there is life on not.

Crossing my fingers ! ;>}

Interesting. I had a 3 cell relatively new that had one cell get hot on charging. It didn't seem to have original capacity after that event. Ymmv, but I would suspect something similar to happen with yours.

Some news outlets are toxic and didn’t like it at all cause it showed pride in OUR Country.
I enjoyed it all because I love this Great Nation.

However PBS is covering the fireworks and entertainment, including Carol King...
Did you know that the rockets have microprocessors and are launched over a local network by a host computer?

We were at a friend's place and were searching all over the 300plus channels for the feed, found it on Cspan, but the camera work was awful. But, you guys are all right it was a great history lesson and tribute to the US , our founding philosophy and our military. Another great Trump speech!
