Testing LiFePO4 Batteries

Well I will be selling them based on their performance. The job bought me this charger to get them going and tested. Took a bit to figure out as the instructions only covered operation and not connection. On airsoft battery chargers they just plug in on the 5 pin cable. On this it charges from the big cables and little cable do the load balance. Very weird way of doing things but no big deal. The instructions should very much have this picture to explain that. Not sure why the indicator on the charger doesn't jive with the meter I have direct to the batteries.

FAQ

Who I am

ULS and other logbooks show me as Aaron, but I go by my middle name Brian.

I've been in the DFW Metroplex since the mid 80's. Before that all over the world. I got into the communications medium then by hosting Club CPU BBS and running Hub 1000. At that time I was connecting the Mac's to the PC's in fidonet. I got into CB's for a time and after I got a little older got lost off in a few(many) different theaters(in all different walks of life) before reaching my early mid 30's to finally settle down in Burleson and start raising a family. Now I spend my free time either on the radio, making music or doing airsoft milsims for fun with my children.

My current rig:

  • Radio : Alinco DX-SR8T and TYT TH-9800(desk) QYT KT-8900D(truck)
  • MFJ-945E Manual Tuner, Homemade sound interface. Not the module in the picture anymore.
  • Antenna : HyGain AV14AVQ see antenna here, 40m Shakespear fishing pole see here, Open stub j-pole see here

All this(minus the 2m/70cm) is crammed in a homemade 4u portable rack. (rack not made by me) It's made of of wood and kit rails and angle brackets. The high denier outer skin is an unknown. Picked it up at the Irving Hamfest 2019 for 25$ see here for that day

 

My Frequencies

I can be found on 444.100 during drive time. However I usually have one of my radios on all the time. I will usually will be just lurking while working on my projects around the house or at work. Or check me out on QRZ for my contact information.

On HF I'm usually on FT8 or PSK31 on the 40m or 20m bands. I may do phone eventually, but don't feel confident enough for that yet.
