    ii and Rick,
    Yep the charge acceptance. I had heard of the discharge curve of course, but I figured by converting to AC the inverter could provide voltage regulation to 110v no sweat. As DI states below running 4 16v batteries should make it doable. The only thing that I saw that would need to be figured out would be starting the engine automatically for a recharge cycle and then shut off again, something I didn't see as being that complicated.

    I am a garage and old farm boy tinkerer and didn't think it would be hard to figure out. After hanging out around here and watching auto and trains for a few years, well, now I know better.

    ii,
    In my innocence, at the beginning of my search for an APU battery setup, I figured a battery setup of 4 batteries converted to AC. With the ac power an off the shelf RV air conditioning unit could be run by the batteries converted to AC or external 110v plug. The PBC fit the bill as when on battery power, when the batteries got too low the engine could kick on to quickly recharge the batteries (high charge acceptance). I was guestimating maybe 3 quick recharges in a 10 hour break. Using off the shelf parts made it a slam dunk. Little did I know.......

    Oh Yeah. An APU set up was the whole reason I was searching for battery solutions when I found this APC years ago. With the anti-idle laws, I spent many uncomfortable nights on the I-15 between Las Vegas and Baker CA. I could let the truck idle and get some good rest while worrying about getting a ticket or slowly roast unable to sleep. Of course the company was split on it as they wanted well rested and safe drivers, yet didn't want to waste the fuel or have drivers that lost points on their CDL ( or have the added cost of a small genset).

    Hiya BK,
    There have been videos shot from an R/C quad copter That's probably the reason for the angle and focus.

    Well, we have been tasked with something that I think we can do in a way that is positive. We all invested b/c we believe in the technology. So I will begin this list with general info that I know (remember off the top of my head).
    Anybody else feel free to amend with any specifics we do know

    * super capacitor-like charge acceptance and discharge characteristics.

    *thousands of partial state of charge cycles with no (or little) detrimental effects to the battery.

    *"king of the string" natural battery equalization that simplifies a BMS.

    *a charging algorithm and charger that refreshes the batteries for longer life (thanks Ed B)

    *quick response for frequency regulation

    I have to go to work now, but this is a start.

    Is it too early for a drum roll?

    PBC,
    Many things are debatable, especially opinions. Most are not, however, worthy of debate in the manner in which you approach them. My "beliefs" are simply my opinions as I previously stated. As to rights, we all have the rights on this blog that APH allows us, there are no others.

    PBC,
    Do you understand the "Rules of Debate"?

    I can only speak for myself here. In the sense that I am here for an exchange of information which leaves little room for debate except for how to apply such info and doesn't need any aggressive debate tactics over minutia and things we have no control over anyway. I find your posts to be better fodder for a politician or a college debate team that doesn't care which side of the debate they have been assigned, only the adrenalin rush they receive from the battle. I have always seen this as a waste of time and energy since there is really nothing to be gained by trying to convince knowledgeable people to shift their thinking.

    Your local college should have a debate team you could join to satisfy your urges and aggressiveness.

    ii,
    I could've been rich, just thinking of all those butts I threw in the trash the last 45 years.

    Hi WT,
    I read and lurk to learn as much as I can. As a small potato casual investor I study as much as possible and then have to follow my gut instincts. My gut is not a happy camper lately. I can see that traders can do well in turmoil while casual investors working with the medium to long term investment strategy can get hurt very badly with the market as it stands now. If I had the time I would rather be a trader in these times. I have recently moved to all cash except for 2 small cap spec stocks that I only have enough in that I can afford to lose if they don't work out.
