Holy Smokes - These things are awesome!

I was going to make some rope tensioners when I thought maybe Amazon has something cheap that I wouldn't have to waste good poly-carbonate and get a heat stroke in the garage. Then I found these. 7$ and came same day. I was a little disappointed when they came in. They came in a large jiffy pack and the contents were smaller than the palm of my hand. The first cord was a struggle as it was the larger normal size, but worked well. The rest of the cords were the smaller 25ft ones I bought at Dollar Tree and they fit perfect. Took about 10 minutes to string up all 6 cords on my 29ft end feed vertical, but took only a few seconds to get the vertical straight. Very good buy.

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.
