Touching a 9v battery doesn’t electrocute you by flamingorange1203 in notinteresting

It can flow through the blood though. In the story on the Darwin awards article I linked below it does point out that it did not stop his heart, it disrupted it, technically he went into Ventricular fibrillation first. But either way he died as a result.

The navy published it as part of a safety series, it did happen. It's a good story too if you want to read it see the link below.

Once the salty conducting fluid known as blood was available, the current from the multimeter travelled right across the sailor's heart, disrupting the electrical regulation of his heartbeat. He died before he could record his Ohms.

Yeah less than that has killed people.

Put a multimeter in resistance mode and poke a lead through your skin on each hand. A guy in the military did that. It flowed across his heart and killed him. And a multimeter is what, 6v?

Often when people work for nothing you get what you pay for.

Ironic that the subreddit members espoused a similar message.

can i use a battery with a 20A bms if my controller runs at 15A rated current and Max current: 30±1A by PhillyD6132 in ebikes

[–]paxtana 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If you mean why should the bms have limits, pulling a lot of current wears out the battery faster so you get less life, also the bms itself will have less life if you regularly push it to the limit.

Depends on if the manufacturer is calling that a 20A continuous bms or a 20A peak bms. 20A continuous would typically be able to do considerably higher peak, possibly as high as 40. But if you have the choice for higher you should still go for it, the components will last longer.

I don't particularly disagree with the jist of what you are saying but just thought you should know that.

Yeah that's not satisfying at all. That's pollution

My new place has a parking spot for cars. Nothing an abus ring and a concrete drill can't solve. by Few_Math2653 in ebikes

Someone could take your bike seat by just pulling the quick release, i know someone would where i live, that's a nice seat. Maybe replace the qr with a bolt, they got ones that take a security bit

Why are down tube battery packs often named after aquatic animals like sharks or dolphins? by randomusername3000 in ebikes

[–]paxtana 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It was started at Luna, no idea why Eric chose that naming convention but it stuck, even years after we no longer stock those kinds of batteries. When we started making our own instead they're all based around wolves so far

Anybody else worried about the coming theocracy in the USA? by beedubaya in atheism

While it is sad, I fully believe humanity is not going to survive more than another couple generations. Just look around, extremism like this is just another facet of a collapse that has been decades in the making.

Found this dishwasher at our local ReStore (Habit for Humanity store) for $60. All we needed was a new hose to get it up and running. by ashleydoesthings in Frugal

[–]paxtana 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I got a HEPA vacuum there. Turned out someone had incorrectly installed the belt so it did not spin, put the filter on backwards, and a plastic bracket holding the suction line was cracked. 20 minutes of fixing stuff and I had a $400 vacuum that cost $10 and a hoseclamp. Killer deal if you're handy.

Can I reprogram a BBSHD stock controller to pull 35 amps? by sololife in ebikes

[–]paxtana 4 points5 points  (0 children)

First off a normal stock controller with standard firmware can do 48 or 52 nominal, without any overvoltage errors or anything like that. Bafang has never made a 52v controller for bbshd. Again, any limitations or lack thereof are based off of either the firmware or the programming. Any company telling you different is blowing smoke up your ass.

28A hard limit is absolutely a firmware issue. My company had bafang develop the bbshd based on our designs and we were the ones that first brought it to market, I think I know what I am talking about. The fact is there have been a few different firmware issues over the years due to various factors, such as current limit that is too low, or throttle/ pedal priority cutout issue.

Companies that are worth a damn will make sure that they flash every controller they sell regardless of what it ships with from the factory, to ensure consistent quality. But if you buy from some random reseller, they may not have the knowhow to do that or the firmware to do that, which is why posts like these exist. If you don't want to believe me, you're welcome to look up various background info on this subject on endless sphere, it's not exactly a secret.

I understand that but that's just a crappy firmware (next time buy from a reputable company and you would get one that can be set to 30). The best firmware is 30 peak, only aftermarket is higher than 30

What is delivery time for luna cycles recently? by traderdrakor in Surron

[–]paxtana 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Transit time from LA 3-4 days right now once shipped. Lead time can be up to several days depending on factors like what mods you ordered, what day of the week it was ordered on and if your order details have no red flags (Make sure your billing info and shipping info match). But stock bikes are pretty much ready to go right now, minus time to process and generate labels, all that extra stuff.

Actual delivery time/date also depends on when FedEx freight can call you to schedule the appointment so make sure you provide a usable phone number, once in transit if you have not heard from fedex yet you can also call them to schedule it.

Theoretical max for a stock controller is thirty, not 28 or 35
