05:09 PM XXCoder: i just read about new charger tech that can do recharge in 5 minutes
05:10 PM roguish[m]: a lot of the charging time is tied to cooling of the batteries while charging.
05:11 PM XXCoder: i hope that 5 min thing is a success

05:11 PM CaptHindsight[m]: just need 400V batteries to keep the current low

05:21 PM _unreal_: but I had already grabbed it.... I didnt answer the door becusae I heard two very faint taps WTF???
05:21 PM _unreal_: went to the window saw them walking away after like two knocks

05:45 PM Tom_L: :)

05:46 PM JT-Shop: there's a lot more to being a chicken tender than just cleaning poop and feeding...
05:46 PM Tom_L: of course. you gotta sing em a lullaby now and then
05:48 PM Tom_L: 2nd round of mud on the surround

05:55 PM aaroncnc: @CaptHindsight[m], Yea i know about it, i have one and its on its 3rd trans...
06:59 PM infornography: go to ebay, search for "Tomrach"
06:59 PM infornography: lol
07:00 PM infornography: It won't be long, Tomrach with return more results than Tormach
07:25 PM unterhaus: I have a batch of misspellings in my saved ebay searches
08:07 PM CloudEvil: Indeed.
08:07 PM CloudEvil: Also fuck ebay for removing wildcard searches.
08:07 PM XXCoder: they removed boolean search in general
08:08 PM XXCoder: its shitty trend along online stores
08:08 PM XXCoder: only amazon you still can do it i think
08:10 PM CloudEvil: A depressing number of my interactions with smart websites ends up at wget -r and then sorting the catalog sanely offline
08:39 PM roycroft: i just received a nice machine lamp
08:40 PM roycroft: 1200 lumens, led, good, stiff goosneck that stays in place
08:40 PM roycroft: but it's 250vac, which i wanted/needed
08:40 PM roycroft: however, it comes with a wall wart for the mains input that has a standard 120vac north american plug
08:40 PM roycroft: what's up with that?
08:49 PM Tom_L: step up transformer?
08:49 PM Tom_L: what's the wart measure on the output?
08:49 PM roycroft: it does not say
08:49 PM roycroft: i suspect it's 12vdc
08:49 PM Tom_L: your meter would
08:50 PM roycroft: yeah, if i took it apart
08:50 PM roycroft: the wall wart is hard wired to the lamp
08:50 PM roycroft: i need to run it on 250vac anyway
08:50 PM roycroft: and the machine it's going on has a 120vac north american receptacle for the light
08:51 PM roycroft: but when i rewire the motor/switch to 250v, that receptacle would carry 250v, except there's no way i'm going to do that
08:51 PM roycroft: my intent was to replace that receptacle with a proper 250v receptacle
08:51 PM roycroft: and by "proper", a european style would be fine with em
08:51 PM roycroft: me
08:52 PM roycroft: perhaps i'll disassemble the wall wart, elminate the receptacle completely, and hard wire the lamp to the mains
08:52 PM Tom_L: somewhere it gets converted to dc
08:52 PM roycroft: i just don't get how one would ship a product with stated 250vac input and put a 120vac plug on it
08:52 PM Tom_L: and doubtful that would be 250v
08:53 PM roycroft: i'm 99.999% positive that it gets converted to 12vdc inside the wall wart
08:53 PM roycroft: i'm that confident having not disassembled or tested it in any way
08:53 PM roycroft: but i could be wrong
08:53 PM roycroft: it could be 24vdc
08:56 PM roycroft: i also suspect that the lamp will work on 120vac
08:57 PM roycroft: i should probably test that
08:57 PM roycroft: but it does not say "125vac-250vac", it says "250vac"
09:34 PM roycroft: and it does work fine on 120vac
