Nokia 3310 Review, Will This Wireless Charger Kill My Phone??? G Suite Help, EcoTank & INKvestment Ink Tank Inkjets!
00:38 Wireless Charger Help!
Jim’s new Fossil smart watch, “charges via a magnetically connected Qi charging cord. While this works it works slowly, taking nearly 3 hours to fully charge from 50% to 100%. I briefly placed my watch on my Samsung Qi charging puck that I use every night with my Note 5. Not only did it start charging the watch, but it was charging faster. Is this dangerous for the watch? Can I use any Qi charger for my watch?” Answer in the video, along with tons of info on wireless charging and chargers! (BTW, here’s that ComputerWorld article, “Is Wireless Charging Bad For Your Smartphone.” https://www.computerworld.com/article/3229750/mobile-wireless/is-wireless-charging-bad-for-your-smartphone.html
10:18 Inkjet Printer Help
Mike emailed email@example.com, “I was in a Sam’s club and saw a Brother MFP which has the refillable bottles for very low consumable costs. My concern is that, with my print volumes, would the ink clog up in the nozzles and ruin the printer over time. Is this a valid concern?” We think it’s a valid concern with -any- inkjet printer, not just EcoTank or INKvestment models… find out what we do to keep our heads flowing in the video!

16:32 G Suite Tips and Tricks
Frank emails, “I’m a former Office and PC user who just joined a company who uses G Suite for everything on my shiny new MacBook Pro. What programs and/or tips/tricks do you recommend I should use as I get used to doing everything from a browser?” “An integrated suite of secure, cloud-native collaboration and productivity apps powered by Google AI. Includes Gmail, Docs, Drive, Calendar, Meet and more,” G Suite is showing up in offices more and more. Shannon talks about G Suite’s Learning Center, GSuiteTips.com, and some of her favorites (like keyboard shortcuts for Docs and Gmail!) in the video!

29:33 Do Something Analog
Like @cjammer, who tweets, “@Snubs @patricknorton sometimes you have to do something analog! Almost 40 yrs in computing arena.” Pix of a MIG welding torch, a couple of locking C Clamps, and a freshly built welding table in the video. Nicely done, CJammer!!!
Steps I took to upgrade the stock WFCO 8955 converter / battery charger in my RV to a better one: the Progressive Dynamics 4655.
The WFCO is famous for almost never switching into bulk mode (fast charging mode) no matter how low of a charge the batteries have. Because of this limitation, it’s impractical to dry camp – unless one plans on having to run their generator all day and night.
I haven’t gotten the new PD4655 to output 55 amps to the batteries just yet, but it’s already preforming MUCH better than the WFCO. I’m certain that once I upgrade the battery cable gauge from AWG #6 to AWG #3, I’ll get an even faster battery charge – in a matter of a few hours instead of 12+ hours. Even without upgrading the wiring, the PD4655 is already charging the batteries much faster.
NOTE: Tech support gave me instructions for fixing the problem with the green status LED not working. It turns out that the conductors in the 4-pin connector were in connected (at the factory) in the wrong sequence. I’ve posted the simple fix here: http://public.fotki.com/kevinkey/misc/
How does a battery charger or charge controller recharge a lead acid battery? Here is the simple explanation.
In this video, I will describe the 3 stages of charging a lead acid battery as well as the equalization process. We get spoiled by advanced battery chargers nowadays but it still very beneficial to understand how it works and how to tweak the settings of your charger based upon the specific recommendations of the manufacturer.
Please help support my channel! Here are a few ways:
** Check out my favorite solar kits at Kits.com ** https://kit.com/LDSreliance
** Donate to my Patreon for perks and news **
** Subscribe to my channel for more great content **
In this lesson we’ll learn about different lead acid battery charging methods. We’ll discuss single stage constant current charging, trickle charging, multi-stage constant current charging, constant voltage charging, the modified constant voltage or fast charging method, float voltage, gassing voltage, charge efficiency, and the equalization process.
