Razor E300 — The Next Step

Data point clouds, smoothed plots, and most importantly — SOC estimation!

Sensors were recalibrated and the wheel wobble was very painfully removed by de-centering the wheel sprocket. Go figure. 1.58 AH expended on this drive.

This telemetry was transmitted wirelessly from my E300 Razor Scooter and recorded by a laptop in my backpack. The end goal? To create a tiny little velcro box to attach to the handlebars to provide a ‘gas gauge’. Because when you have to kick-scoot back home, its no fun!

All I need are more MSP430 chips which are in the mail.

Red dots and Blue Lines are battery current
Red lines and Blue dots are battery voltage
Pale thick blue line is amp-hour consumption. At 15 Amps average rate, the pack offers ~5AH of capacity.

XMI X-mini II Speaker: Woo-Boost
Laptop Battery

Image by amchu
This is my most recent purchase and it’s absolutely fantastic. The XMI X-mini II speaker system is one of the best mini speakers I’ve ever heard especially for the sub £15 price tag.

If you normally use laptop speakers and you’re looking for something with a little more kick then one of these should do the trick. It’s small enough to take with you, the rechargeable battery life lasts for hours on end and it’s incredibly loud. No more ‘tinny’ sounds for me when I’m on the go.

Best gadget buy of 2010 so far I think.

This was taken on Broadway, between 87th and 88th Street.

Note: for some reason, this photo was published as an illustration in a Sep 2009 Squidoo blog titled "Honda Scooters." It was also published in a May 22, 2011 blog oddly titled "Nice 87 Honda Scooter Parts Photos."

**************************************

This is the continuation of a photo-project that I began in the summer of 2008: a random collection of "interesting" people in a broad stretch of the Upper West Side of Manhattan — between 72nd Street and 104th Street, especially along Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.

As I indicated when I started this project in 2008, I don’t like to intrude on people’s privacy, so I normally use a telephoto lens in order to photograph them while they’re still 50-100 feet away from me; but that means I have to continue focusing my attention on the people and activities half a block away, rather than on what’s right in front of me.

I’ve also learned that, in many cases, the opportunities for an interesting picture are very fleeting — literally a matter of a couple of seconds, before the person(s) in question move on, turn away, or stop doing whatever was interesting. So I’ve learned to keep the camera switched on (which contradicts my traditional urge to conserve battery power), and not worry so much about zooming in for a perfectly-framed picture … after all, once the digital image is uploaded to my computer, it’s pretty trivial to crop out the parts unrelated to the main subject.

Thus far, I’ve generally avoided photographing bums, drunks, crazies, and homeless people. There are a few of them around, and they would certainly create some dramatic pictures; but they generally don’t want to be photographed, and I don’t want to feel like I’m taking advantage of them. I’m still looking for opportunities to take some "sympathetic" pictures of such people, which might inspire others to reach out and help them. We’ll see how it goes …

The only other thing I’ve noticed, thus far, is that while there are lots of interesting people to photograph, there are far, far, far more people who are not so interesting. They’re probably fine people, and they might even be more interesting than the ones I’ve photographed … but there was just nothing memorable about them.

This was also taken in Verdi Square, on one of the wooden park benches — and obviously, this guy was sound asleep. I had actually been sitting right next to him, on his left, when he approached and plunked himself down right next to me. I was intrigued by his unusual choise of clothing: plaid shorts, and a striped shirt … so I got up, positioned myself in front of him (which he didn’t notice, since he was sound asleep), and took this picture.

This is part of an evolving photo-project, which will probably continue throughout the summer of 2008, and perhaps beyond: a random collection of "interesting" people in a broad stretch of the Upper West Side of Manhattan — between 72nd Street and 104th Street, especially along Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.

morning stroll across the Brooklyn bridge
Computer Battery

Image by Andrea [bah! la realtà!]
this is still from my second day walking around Manhattan, like all the photos I have been posting lately… walked from Battery Park to the Brooklyn bridge, and then across.

by the time I got here, the fog was starting to lift, and it was really nice! can’t wait to go again on a better day, it must be really stunning

there is something about many of these pictures that is funny… I’m not sure whether it’s the light, or the extreme depth of field and clarity of this lens at f/8. but some of these pictures look like computer graphics :-)

I am happy if you like my pictures, and I’ll be honored to add it to your group, but please no big or animated invite badges.

A battery technology that was touted nine years ago for notebooks may finally get its day in the sun.

Notebook makers will “likely” soon choose to incorporate lithium polymer batteries over the current commonly used type, lithium ion batteries, Sony battery Electronics President Stan Glasgow said during a meeting with reporters Wednesday.

Lithium polymer batteries use lithium as an active ingredient. Lithium is a volatile material, but the lithium in these batteries isn’t packed into cells as it is in lithium ion batteries. Instead, it is contained in a polymer gel. These gel batteries can’t provide the same sort of energy density as lithium ion batteries, but that’s now a plus.

Manufacturers, and in particular Sony battery, have pushed the energy density (or capacity) of lithium ion batteries. When an internal short occurs, it can set off a chain reaction and start a fire. Dell battery, Lenovo battery, Toshiba, Apple Computer and others, in conjunction with Sony battery, have offered to take back millions of lithium ion batteries shipped with particular notebooks in the past two years.

“There is not too much more power we want to cram into lithium ion,” Glasgow said.

Historically, polymer batteries have not been able to provide the long battery life manufacturers and consumers demand. Mitsubishi put lithium polymer batteries in its ill-fated Pedion notebook in 1997. The notebook sported several design novelties–it was far thinner than contemporary designs and was the first notebook with a shiny metallic chassis–but it cost nearly $ 6,000 and had some mechanical problems.

Despite their struggles, industrial designers have always liked lithium polymer because gel packs can be squeezed into devices’ empty spaces. Lithium polymer has also improved over time. Some manufacturers are using it in phones.

Several companies are responding to the hazards of lithium ion by coming out with nonlithium batteries. Zinc Matrix Power and PowerGenix, for example, are promoting zinc-based batteries for notebooks and other devices. Zinc Matrix says it will start shipping batteries in 2007. Glasgow asserted that that these Asus laptop battery technologies could take a little while to get to market.

“I don’t think anything new is going to be available in the next 12 to 18 months,” he said.

MTI Micro Fuel Cells and others will also try to popularize fuel cells, which harvest battery for HP battery notebooks by passing methanol through a membrane.
