Power Wherever You Are

Apr 12, 17 Power Wherever You Are

Posted by in Technolgoy

Getting it to start the first time is always a problem many aircraft and marine mechanics face, especially when dealing with older craft and more power sensitive vehicles. However, with the advent of modern technology in battery pack design, many of the problems faced by mechanics decades ago are now problems best left in history books. With powerful lithium gpu or ground power units, starting a big vessel or powerful turbine helicopter is as easy as a snap and click. With lithium technology present in modern 28 volt battery pack systems, you can have the same amount of starting power and capacity as that of a large array of lead acid batteries at a mere fraction of the weight and bulk. Gone are the days of lead acid water testing, specific gravity balancing, and cell-cycling, as these new self-contained lithium cells are maintenance free and need no outside intervention. Checking up on the lithium cells are as easy as clicking a test button on your power pack and the cells are individually tested and health state reports are either shown on an LED panel, or LCD screen. Using these self-contained systems also allows for minimal user intervention during cycling and battery balancing so you can spend less time worrying about your power pack, and more time working on more important things. Charging lithium technology battery packs are also as simple as plugging them into a mains outlet and allowing the computer controlled charger to fully charge and maintain the lithium batteries....

Deciding Whether or Not a Refurbished Smartphone Is In Your Best Interest

Apr 11, 17 Deciding Whether or Not a Refurbished Smartphone Is In Your Best Interest

Posted by in Mobile, Technology

Written by: Omar Amanat Summary: Smartphones are all the rage today. But, if you want a deep discount, you could consider buying a refurbished phone as an alternate investment. The concept of purchasing used or refurbished cell phones can either be a match made in heaven or fill you with the unfulfilling feeling of not having a brand new smartphone in your hand. So, is purchasing a “revived” smartphone actually worth it? Here are some opinions that will help you lean towards buying or passing on a refurbished model. The Right Time to Buy a Refurbished Cell Phone As you may already know, refurbished phones are obviously sold at a discounted rate. A used cell phone will almost always be cheaper than a new cell phone. If it’s not, well, you’re being scammed. Remember, in the world of consumer electronics, you get what you pay for. If paying for something that someone else already used and then returned, a second-hand phone will come with a relatively steep price drop. Another reason why a refurbished phone might right for you is the eco-friendly nature of making this decision. And, you can never go wrong when it comes to karma points. Another particular reason you might want to invest in a refurbished phone is when your old model crashes and dies. Sure, it may be out of style, but it’s the model that you’ve learned to love and created a special bond over time. And, purchasing a new one would just sever the relationship you had with that specific model. When Buying Refurbished Phones Goes Wrong If you’re the type of individual that upgrades to the newest model every year or so to reap the benefits of the newest features, buying a refurbished phone may not be in your best interest. Even if your purchase feels relatively new, it may not be fulfilling enough for you to be satisfied with your purchase. And, there’s nothing like going into a store and unboxing a “sterile” smartphone straight...
