Well, my old marine battery had a cell that failed and shorted out the battery, thus removing power from the system. Well, I took that old battery to walmart and got a cheap lawn tractor battery to replace it since the project doesn’t use that much power…well, the lawn tractor battery was DOA and would not take a charge. So back it went. I’m going to be running the battery from an SLA that I know can’t run it for long, but hopefully long enough to get pictures to upload to the gallery.
I am going to keep an eye out for a high reserve capacity battery from CT or MAP to get the project back going again. Lot of R&D setbacks are starting to crop up now that we are trying to run the field tower nonstop.
