⚡️DIY Powerwall Project – ep4 – Opus BT-C3100 Fan Mod & Test (2019)

Power2Spare has large, brushless fans for keeping the Opus BT-C3100s cool while you are processing cells. They cut the cycle time down vs the stock fans and work even better on the 1,000 mAh setting. The mod is simple, but I did have issues. Also shows test results.

⚡️DIY Powerwall Project – ep3 – Processing Cells (2019)

I walk through my cell processing process to sort cells into groups and answer a question about lead-acid vs 18650s.

🥧Raspberry Pi 3B3B+ USB SATA/SSD (2019) 🥧

Steps to boot an SSD SATA hard drive w/USB adapter on a Raspberry Pi 3B/3B+ and manually resize the partition to fill the drive. Not needed for Falcon Player, but useful for write-heavy applications. The drive and adapter I used are on my Amazon Affiliate page.

⚡️DIY Powerwall Project ep1 (2019)

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Kicking off a new year and a new project, but this one is not lighting related. Don’t worry though, I have plenty to do with the display this year and will work on those at the same time.

I had some time this past weekend to work on one of the props bothering me a little. The new frame did what I wanted. After reaching a stopping point, I noticed something really bad.

EDM/Dubstep RGB LED Christmas Light Show (2018)

This is the sequence I spent the most time on last year and added the new 2018 props to the mix. The music is two custom songs I created on my iPad. Also trying out the multi-camera feature of Premiere – I like it. I hope you do too! Camera is a Sony FDRAX53/B 4K HD camcorder (https://amzn.to/2Qu24CQ).
