Forbidden Planet: The great machine
 
04:08
this is my favorite scene from Forbidden Planet, i believe it is the best special affects scene to come out of the 1950's the great machine filled roughly 1.2 billion square feet and had the power to transmit solid matter to any location on the planet. it was also what caused the extinction of the Krell civilization. i'd love to see an MST3K episode about this film.

The Black Hole: USS Cygnus
 
04:50
This is a compilation of the notable special effects in the film The Black Hole. i love this film...well atleast the first half. they started filming the movie before the script was finished so the ending could have been better but its still an awesome film. but i really like Dr. Reinhardt and wish those astronauts hadnt messed up his plans tbh either way, this film had some awesome visuals and audio!

DIY Revive Lithium 18650 cells
 
02:49
here is how to revive an undervoltaged lithium cell. if you try to charge an undervolted cell with normal charge current, most of them will short out and break. if you don't have access to a universal power supply you can use a very high resistance resistor to limit the amps going into the battery.

06:26
some random clips that couldn't make a youtube video by themselves. well today i did a lot of things that might be considered dangerous like cleaning up my yard and the thing that got me into the ER was....my cat. this kinda proves my point about me taking enough safety precautions with my projects. because its the more mundane things that get you, not sulfuric acid and lithium explosions. i just started filming what i was doing for no reason and well my day got more interesting, maybe its the curse of the camera. also a question for my viewers. are somewhat random update/vlog videos such as this entertaining enough or should i stick to just documenting my projects/autopsies?

in short, it didnt help. it seems this battery's electrolyte is already reactive enough, epsom salt would only help it if the electrolyte was weak,

this was a very very very fun build. maybe i'll try golf balls next....and someday real cannon balls. i never knew about this until Adam Savage built one on Mythbusters. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBY3Z4F0dxk i'm going to work on it more and try to get it supersonic. and i will prolly make another video just firing it at things and getting cool camera angles. in this video i was too focused on getting it to work so i didnt get the best video angles.

DIY Rechargible Copper Zinc Battery with Epsom Salt
 
10:16
today i was in my shed and saw the Voltaic Pile i'd made when i was 8-9 and wondered if that battery chemistry was rechargeable or if i could make it rechargeable by changing the electrolyte. simple answer is yes. a Voltaic Pile doesnt actually work too well with a sodium chloride electrolyte. upon charging and discharging the plates corrode a lot. whereas with an epsom salt solution it only corrodes the plates minimally then by applying a charge you can reverse the reaction on the plates. each charge/discharge cycle does create a small amount of Copper Hydroxide witch falls to the bottom of the cell but it is such a small amount that i could prolly get many cycles from this battery before the plates fully corroded. this cell's terminal voltage is about 0.8v after sitting for a while and has about 7mah of capacity. it would be interesting to experiment with this battery chemistry more if only it would supply more amps and a higher terminal voltage. the song is "Lung Bubbles" by Professor Kliq. video still didn't come out how i wanted but fuck it i'm not spending another 8 hours on it haha.

Super Capacitor Amp-Hours?
 
05:38
today i test the AH rating of my 2.7v 400F capacitors. they only cost 5$ each from china so am tempted to buy more. they have proven to have much more capacity than i expected. when i got them in July i just played with them and set them on the shelf and forgot about them, i originally bought them to build a spot welder to put tabs onto 18650 cells. song is from Vectorman for Sega Genesis

Does Epsom Salt Revive a Battery?
 
09:47
results Epsom Salt raises voltage. this can help to stop sulfation. Epsom salt raises conductivity and increases the amps a battery can provide. Epsom salt does not desulfate a battery over a short time period. Epsom salt does not increase AH/capacity over a short time period. and lastly Epsom salt seems to give the battery an overcharge capability. this is far more evident in my video "DIY opening a car battery and repairing with epsom salt" when i discover the battery goes from 11v to over 12v after i short out the terminals. in other words charging and discharging the battery quickly within a short amount of time seems to raise capacity temporarily.

Do Desulfators Restore Amp-Hours? Lead Acid Battery experiment
 
04:18
so i left my desulfator connected to this Trojan T-105 golf cart battery for 2 months and it seems to have no effects. previous video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngfeqY1Z5ZE the discharge results in that video where 52.9 AH the results in this video where 53.5 AH. the differance is just the normal variations between charges. so this does confirm my suspicion that desulfators might not do much, but it needs several more in-depth tests to show for sure. after all the desulfator i got was cheep and it arrived broken so i had to fix it. music: Gremlins 2 on the Nintendo Entertainment System

DIY 55$ 24AH Lithium-Ion 18650 E-Bike battery 100+ Mile Range: complete build
 
29:00
Previous E-bike Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYXreeuv3Jw in this video i build the second 24v 24ah lithium battery block for my 48v 24ah bicycle battery. i built this pack from low quality 18650 cells. each 6 cell pack cost 4.99$ so thats only about 85 cents per cell. even if they are low quality that is wonderfully useful. in this video when i say a cell is "unstable" i mean it is more likely to short out when it's voltage is dropped due to metal buildup on the plates. the main differances between good quality cells and poor quality cells such as these are due to the cheep cells being made of lower quality materials. some of the differances include 1: lower chemical-electrical conversion efficiency 2: lower capacity 3: faster self-discharge rate 4: shorter life span these characteristics dont ruin their functionality though, they are wonderfully useful even at the worst quality. ~~music used~~ Zelda Wind Waker: departure Scrapheap Challenge (junkyard wars) background music several songs from Jersey Devil for playstation 1
