  2. Hey Brad, Download the Picaxe Editor software here, then you can program the chip from there. https://picaxe.com/software/ PS, took a quick look at your boards, but haven't had a chance to test them. Will try and get that done this weekend.
  3. How do you reprogram or program the 08M2 with the PICkit 2 starter kit from Microchip.
  4. So, I still have old DXG125v builds up and running and had been running everything off 18650 batteries. Recently, I cam into possession of Tesla rechargeable batteries and they are so much more efficient and long lasting. Here are the battery holders. They do require some soldering of wires to run them at the 12v. Been pretty fast shipping to get to me. https://www.ebay.com/itm/373661902443?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=642691391491&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649. The fit right in the same spot and only take up a marginally larger amount of space. tesla model 3 2170 lithium io
  5. I just looked real quick but it looks like ebay, amazon and walmart online all have them
  6. Where can I get batteries for the W100 Sony? Ebay ones I bought about 5 years ago are dead and won’t charge. bill
  7. Sorry man, life has been crazy and I just saw this. I did have an issue with email a while ago but it's resolved now. JDH is correct on the SS1. It has a 5V regulator, so you would probably have issues if the voltage gets below 5.2V or so. The SSII and the BF can both run on 5V though.
  8. Appears to be one of the best analyzing chargers out there. https://www.amazon.com/Powerex-MH-C9000PRO-Professional-Charger-Analyzer/dp/B08DJDQ4Y8/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=maha+c9000&qid=1615045187&sr=8-3 Review: https://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?386814-Test-Review-of-Analyzing-Charger-Powerex-MH-C9000 Bill
  9. Wow!! Thanks for the update. Bill
  10. They are the only batteries to use! $2.50 each here in Australia, they last many times longerthan an alkaline battery and a rechargeable. I can put a set of 8 in one of my cameras and it take 30,000 images, yes 30 thousand and last 2 years.
  11. They are AA. My wife bought them at WalMart and I don't know what she paid for them. I am going to shop around and see what I can find. Going to use them in my deer feeders and some long term deployment cameras. Bill
  12. Pretty interesting article from XTAR. Bill https://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?472146-How-does-a-charger-know-Ni-MH-Ni-CD-or-Li-ion-batteries-get-fully-charged
  13. Thanks for the review. What size and best price?
  14. I have been using Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries to power a wireless thermometer in my freezers. They have been in the freezer at well below zero temps for almost 2 months now. So far the thermometers still work as they should. Don't know how they would hold up powering a camera using more power but it is still interesting. Bill
  15. Thanks to everyone. Having recently moved to Alabama I will be exploring the area looking for new areas for deploying cameras. Got spoiled on my Church Buddy's place in Oklahoma. The backbone of my fleet of cameras is still the Samsung A503 and the Sony W100. Thanks johnnydeerhunter for turning me on to the W100. Bill
  16. If you are using the Schottky diode to prevent discharging of the battery when there's no sunlight on the panel you may not need it if using a solar/charge controller.
  17. To attach files (images) at the bottom of the page next to the paper clip click on "Add Files" click on "my files" choose either "sd card" or "internal storage" choose you image provided it is no more 250kb's you can post it straight away, if not you will need to downsize.
  18. I have been out of the loop for a couple years as well. Solar systems are pretty simple in general. You need a solar panel, a Schottky diode, a charge controller, and a battery. For 18650 and 6v sla, I use 6v panels that put out 700-833mah. I forget what the watt rating of them are. I would strongly suggest using the biggest solar panel you can safely get away with hiding. That way you get maximum charge with even limited sun. And having the charge controller assures you need not worry about over charging. And remember solar panels are all but worthless if not in full sun for at least 4-
  19. Everything in general. Been out the loop for a while. Bill
  20. After getting back to this post. Are you asking about what solar panels? Or what charge controllers? Or everything in general? And what cameras and batteries are you attempting to charge?
  21. I bought a cheap solar charge controller off of ebay. For the SLA batteries. And a charge controller for 18650s as well I am about to head out of town. I will try to remeber to put a picture up next week. Works quite well as a charger as well when fed with a constant source.
  22. What is everyone using to Solar Charge their camera's batteries? Bill
  23. I will have to look into Camtrapper. I am not a member there. Thank you for the suggestion.
  24. Both or the external phone batteries I have put out 5.0 volts. Garys email for his website is out of order. Returned my email undelivered. Both the SSII & Bigfoot do run on 5v no problem. Haven’t tried the SSI yet. But neither board draws enough power to keep the external battery from shutting off. If I left the P32 powered on with the screen on, it would stay going. Until the camera shut off after a few minutes.
  25. I suggest you put this post on Camtrapper, Jeff (the admin.) will definitely have the answer.
