Yeti Lithium Fast charger improvements, 12v + auto charger options, CES 2019 Link + Tank expansion

This is an update to my previous video showing my fast charger setup:

Since my 4x wall charger fast charger outputs close to 300 watts, it generates some heat. My original rubber spacers couldn’t handle the heat so I added some new extruded aluminum spacers from Makerbeam for better airflow to keep things cool. I walk through how I did it.

I have some info for people asking about whether it’s possible to use a standard 12v power supply to charge a Yeti instead of ganging up multiple wall chargers like I did. I also cover some info I gleaned from Goal Zero on upcoming products: a fan-cooled 300 watt wall charger, a 12v 150 watt auto charger, and the upcoming Link and Tank expansion packs announced at 2019 CES for Yeti Lithiums.

Makerbeam 40mm blank anodized beams (40x10x10mm size) I used as spacers:

Speaker 1: Today we’re going to be taking a look at several different types of battery chargers. We’re going to take a look at the similarities and differences in them, to try to help you determine which one is going to be right for your application.The four different styles that we have here today are all good at different things, some of them good at the same thing. We’ve got a Trickle style solar charger. We’re going to have an onboard 12-volt to 12-volt charger, which is pretty unique. Going to have your traditional style, kind of battery charger in a box here. Then, with the CTEK, it’s going to take a lot of the same things that we really like here, adds in a few more features.The larger box style, and the style similar to what we have here like the CTEK, these are going to be the more traditional style battery chargers, something that’s going to have quite a few uses, why don’t we take a look at those firstIf you have any experience with battery chargers at all, you’ve probably seen one very similar to this.

These are all going to operate very similar to one another. In most of these chargers, we have two modes offered, one is going to be a conventional styles, one is going to be a deep cycle, this happens to be the AGM style deep cycle.This is going to offer a two amp trickle charge, that’s just a maintenance charge, that’s just gently going to keep your battery refreshed, so you don’t have any drain issues. The next one is going to be the 15 amp, that’s a fast charge. We would set our battery up, going to monitor it here, this gives us the percentage of charge in our battery, once that gets up to a full 12 volts, then we’re going to pull that off. This one is going to offer, if you go into the 100 amp, that’s going to be like a boost, or almost like a jump start feature.For this style, of course, you’re going to have the alligator clamps.

The biggest drawbacks I see with these, are sometimes the clamps aren’t the right size or shape to fit all types of battery, and you have to gain access to your battery to use it. A limiting factor with this style of charger is that it does require to be plugged in. You won’t be able to use this in more remote locations, unless you have a generator handy.Now, with more advanced styles, like what we get here with our CTEK, this still requires it to be plugged in, the remote application isn’t really going to be applicable. But with this style of charger, most of these are going to recognize what type of battery that we are using, so we don’t have to worry about selecting that.It’s going to offer the charge mode, which is normal, that’s just like for charging up your battery. It’s going to offer the little snowflake icon there as your maintenance charge, that’s going to keep your battery refreshed.

It’s going to give us this supply, which we can use that for jump starting vehicles. But this one goes a step further, and also offers the recondition mode.Though, a lot of these more advanced chargers offer us the recondition mode, which helps to drain our battery down, it uses a pulse inaudible 00:02:46 through it to desulfate the plates, then it’s going to recharge it, so that reconditioning process helps to extend the life of your battery. I really like that.When batteries get drained down, then they get a memory inside of them, it’s good to be able to refresh those.One of the things I like about the more advanced style chargers are going to be the options in connecting to our battery that we have. You see, this one in particular is going to have your alligator clamps. It also has a hardwired kit option, so we could wire this directly to our battery, then simply plug it in when ready for use.They also offer a 12-volt cigarette lighter plugin option, if you didn’t want to access your battery, didn’t want to have to deal with alligator clips, simply plug in the 12-volt adapter, it’ll plug right into your power source.Now that we’ve taken a look at some of the traditional style chargers, let’s take a look at some

What are your Options Regarding Forex Options Brokers?

Forex option brokers can generally be divided into two separate categories: forex brokers who offer online forex option trading platforms and forex brokers who only broker forex option trading via telephone trades placed through a dealing / brokerage desk. A few forex option brokers offer both online forex option trading as well a dealing / brokerage desk for investors who prefer to place orders through a live forex option broker.

The trading account minimums required by different forex option brokers vary from a few thousand dollars to over fifty thousand dollars. Also, forex option brokers may require investors to trade forex options contracts having minimum notional values ​​(contract sizes) up to $ 500,000. Last, but not least, certain types of forex option contracts can be entered into and exited at any time while other types of forex option contracts lock you in until expiration or settlement. Depending on the type of forex option contract you enter into, you might get stuck the wrong way with an option contract that you can not trade out of. Before trading, investors should inquire with their forex option brokers about initial trading account minimums, required contract size minimums and contract liquidity.

There are a number of different forex option trading products offered to investors by forex option brokers. We believe it is extremely important for investors to understand the distinctly different risk characteristics of each of the forex option trading products mentioned below that are offered by firms that broker forex options.

Plain Vanilla Forex Options Broker – Plain vanilla options generally refer to standard put and call option contracts traded through an exchange (however, in the case of forex option trading, plain vanilla options would refer to the standard, generic option contracts that are traded through an over-the-counter (OTC) forex dealer or clearinghouse). In simple terms, vanilla forex options would be defined as the buying or selling of a standard forex call option contract or forex put option contract.

There are only a few forex option broker / dealers who offer plain vanilla forex options online with real-time streaming quotes 24 hours a day. Most forex option brokers and banks only broker forex options via telephone. Vanilla forex options for major currencies have good liquidity and you can easily enter the market long or short, or exit the market any time day or night.

Vanilla forex option contracts can be used in combination with each other and / or with spot forex contracts to form a basic strategy such as writing a covered call, or much more complex forex trading strategies such as butterflies, strangles, ratio spreads, synthetics, etc . Also, plain vanilla options are often the basis of forex option trading strategies known as exotic options.

Exotic Forex Options Broker – First, it is important to note that there are a couple of different forex definitions for "exotic" and we do not want anyone getting confused. The first definition of a forex "exotic" refers to any individual currency that is less broadly traded than the major currencies. The second forex definition for "exotic" is the one we refer to on this website – a forex option contract (trading strategy) that is a derivative of a standard vanilla forex option contract.

To understand what makes an exotic forex option "exotic," you must first understand what makes a forex option "non-vanilla." Plain vanilla forex options have a definite expiration structure, payout structure and payout amount. Exotic forex option contracts may have a change in one or all of the above features of a vanilla forex option. It is important to note that exotic options, since they are often tailor to a specific investor's needs by an exotic forex options broker, are generally not very liquid, if at all.

Exotic forex options are generally traded by commercial and institutional investors rather than retail forex traders, so we will not spend too much time covering exotic forex options brokers. Examples of exotic forex options would include Asian options (average price options or "APO's"), barrier options (payout depends on whether or not the underlying reaches a certain price level or not), baskets (payout depends on more than one currency or a "basket" of currencies), binary options (the payout is cash-or-nothing if under does not reach strike price), lookback options (payout is based on maximum or minimum price reached during life of the contract), compound options (options) on options with multiple strikes and exercise dates), spread options, chooser options, packages and so on. Exotic options can be tailored to a specific trader's needs, therefore, exotic options contract types change and evolve over time to suit those ever-changing needs.

Since exotic currencies options contracts are usually specifically tailor to an individual investor, most of the exotic options business in transacted over the telephone through forex option brokers. There are, however, a useful of forex option brokers who offer "if touched" forex options or "single payment" forex options contracts online where an investor can specify an amount he or she is willing to risk in exchange for a specified payout amount if the undering price reaches a certain strike price (price level). These transactions offered by legitimate online forex brokers can be considered a type of "exotic" option. However, we have noticed that the premiums charged for these types of contracts can be higher than plain vanilla option contracts with similar strike prices and you can not sell out of the option position once you have purchased this type of option – you can only attempt to offset the position with a separate risk management strategy. As a trade-off for getting to choose the dollar amount you want to risk and the payout you wish to receive, you pay a premium and sacrifice liquidity. We would encourage investors to compare premiums before before investing in these kinds of options and also make sure the brokerage firm is reputable.

Again, it is fairly easy and liquid to enter into an exotic forex option contract but it is important to note that depending on the type of exotic option contract, there may be little to no liquidity at all if you wanted to exit the position.

Firms Offering Forex Option "Betting" – A number of new firms have popped up over the last year offering forex "betting." Although some may be legitimate, a number of these firms are either off-shore entities or located in some other remote location. We generally do not consider these to be forex brokerage firms. Many do not appear to be regulated by any government agency and we strongly suggest investors perform due diligence before investing with any forex betting firms. Invest at your own risk with these firms.


Hyundai Kona EV home charging options

Test charging my Kona using both the Granny cable (ICCB) supplied with the car and my Zappi charger.
Rates, times and efficiency. Additional test including an extension lead in front of the ICCB.

For accuracy I charged the car to an even 10% boundary before starting, letting the car cut off using the charge limit feature. For each test I again used the charge limit to charger just 10% . This seemed to be the most accurate way to compare multiple charges methods.

Of note the plug of the extension cord was quite warm, not hot but definitely warmer than that of the Granny cable on its own.
