I had a need for a large 12v battery charger.
I made this 100 amp 12v battery charger.
I took the charger to Baldwin Battery Service in Omaha, Nebraska which is known for quality service.
The battery specialist and I tested the charger.
All I wanted was 35 amps of power and we peak at 100 amps.
The charger was tested holding at 50 amps on a bad battery.
Baldwin Battery Service can test any battery and tested my custom homemade charger.
I appreciated his help.
Yes we have 1200 watts on that meter.
I can build a battery charger for my electric motorcycle or electric car.
Technology Experience and Future
This happen at the October 03, 2009 Child Saving Institute Omaha Touch a Truck event.
I was at the October 24, 2009 Earth 350 event in Omaha, Nebraska.
I am showing the Mayor Jim Suttle my solar display.
I found myself with dead batteries in my digital camera.
Thinking outside the box I took apart one of my cordless drills.
I picked some cordless drills up from garage sales. Many for less than one dollar.
Most of the time the chargers to the drills are lost or broken.
I know my camera use two AA batteries so I am using three Nicad batteries.
Alkaline battery have a voltage of 1.5v and a Nicad battery have a 1.2v output, that is why I am using three Nicads for my camera.
The key for me is the number of batteries the the camera use and add one more battery if you use Nicads.
This works for digital cameras using four batteries of less.
If you do try this it is at your own risk.
The photo of the drill and Nicad batteries was taken with my digital camera attached to the Nicads
You can see the wire coming from the Nicad batteries and going to my camera.
I also used a solar panel to charge the Nicad batteries.
One can say I now have a solar digital camera.
I am converting this riding lawn tractor to electric power.
I will name this tractor Lightning Volt.

What do we do with a trash can filled with parts?.
We will make a robot out of the parts and will use the trash can too.
This robot will move, talk, it will see in black and white, and hear.

As I get parts the robot will get better and do more things.
