  3. The interesting takeaway, is that human ingenuity will find a way...We understand so much of our world these days that we pretty much control large parts of it. Amazing to think that we were once at the mercy of the elements a few years ago...
  4. My interest would be for car use - I have an old Lotus Seven look-a-like that I built a few years ago. It goes like blazes and sounds the business. I can't see any merit in "electrifying" it.
  5. As I like to follow new trends, here's something that may give hope to engine lovers... https://jalopnik.com/porsche-claims-its-synthetic-fuel-could-make-combustion-1846319665
  6. Lol, you're hilarious. I'm already an old git. Do all narrow-boaters have narrow grumpy minds? As far as experience goes...lol again. Like I said to your mate Mrs. Smelly - You hanker for the good old days when you didn't have to learn anything new. If you go back to the origins of this post, I put up a video of new battery technology. Nothing else. Guess what? You're posting to a forum via a computer and the internet. I'm surprised you don't moan that you can't write letters to the editor any more...Ah. the good old days, when I wrote a missive to the County - and Samuel, my trusted manservan
  7. The other advantage I read is that the cost to produce cylindrical cells is less.
  8. I don't use any connection between alternator and the LiFePO4 - they're solar and generator charged. My engine is fitted with a 175A auxiliary alternator, but that's 12V - My LiFePO4 are 24 V. Anyway, in Summer I have no issues - I was fully charged today by 11.30 even - in winter I need the generator for an hour or two depending on the day's sunlight.
  9. This is a primer for the question you asked - https://www.lithiumion-batteries.com/cylindrical-vs-prismatic-cells.php

  11. I think the pics are fairly self explanatory - The stove runs fine - after lighting on an fully open draught control - No. 6, we run the entire day/night on No. 1 - nothing more to see. If the fire dies andd we need to add more logs/coal we just open up the control and then back it down when things have caught on.
  12. I have realised that I owe you all an update. Here it is. It works fine. Still alive... Been toasty warm all winter. Not had any issues at all. I do get a bit of smoke if I yank the door open too vigorously, when filling with more fuel, but that's the norm with or without an outside duct. Do you need pics?
