Re: [EVDL] Battery theory + advice on charger

Yep!

I have 18 BB600s to play with now, and I am going to get 2 good
floodies as well. I'll have a 24V floodie pack and a 21V NiCD pack to
play with then. I can get an inexpensive 24V controller, and a big
nasty resistor as well as a pot, and do some real experiments to test
out the idea of a hybrid pack.

By the way.. Lee (or anyone else!).. what is a good brand/source for a
charger I can use for the NiCD -and- the floodies? Obviously, I don't
need to have anything that is automatic, just be able to control
voltage limit and current limit, etc. so that I can run numbers. In
fact I don't want it to be automatic. Just to have a couple of dials
and meters.

Re: [EVDL] Battery theory + advice on charger

I've charged my BB600's using an HP6269B power supply,

50V max and 60Amps max. Find one on ebay for a
reasonable price. This gives you lots of flexibility
for a range of battery voltages. I can do constant
current or constant voltage by tweaking the knobs on
the supply.
