+ - SPAM: Basic Knowledge Of Battery And Battery Carrier

Submitted by povto
povto (2978765) writes "The electric cigarette / e cigarette vaporizes liquid called.
To evaporate liquid, which energy needed comes from a rechargeable battery.
In principle there is a electric cigarette battery and evaporator . Both are available in a variety of design and function.
The market is determined in large parts of the so-called clones. So it happens that, under the same name different e-cigarettes are offered. But are offered under various names also the same electric cigarettes. Here, the only active users with a forum to expose these things very quickly. Most manufacturers come from China, where the electric cigarette was developed in today’s form of use.
You will look around on the market, there are many names ,such as VV mod or mod + hit. Many devices have been modified and improved since launch. This should bring the supplements expressed. Slowly, it becomes cluttered with the names.
To avoid misunderstandings. One speaks of a battery are meant two things. Once the battery is meant as a single rechargeable battery and comes with battery makers to use.
The other time one thinks a battery unit is also rechargeable. This battery unit consists of a battery to the electronic unit. Both are firmly fitted together and can not be readily separated . One would therefore rather speak of a battery pack, but with this keyword to get more either in forums or in the search engines.
Battery (battery unit, battery unit)
Electric cigarettes often have built-in battery units that are equipped with electronics. This battery has a specific charge cycle, so keep a certain number of charges on, usually there are between 300 and 600, or more. Eventually, the battery is on its service and you have to dispose of everything. Hobbyists can build with skill and re-install the electronics somewhere. Before such a battery is disposed of, it makes sense in a forum in a hobbyist board to ask whether someone needs.
These batteries are often found in the so-called electric cigarette starter kits. These are, for example, eGo-C, eGo-T, ego Cab, ECAB, Biansi Imist to mention just a few appliances. The battery can be charged via a USB port or power outlet. These batteries are smaller and lighter than the battery carrier. The downside is that the battery runtime. Today, devices commonly found between 600mAh and 1100 mAh. The latter may, according to custom, rich for a day.
One has the standard 650mAh battery needs to be at least 2 pieces to get through the day. Also, since it is very close.
Special forms of these batteries are permanently installed batteries so-called twist. So you can adjust the Voltage.
Batteries as a permanently installed unit are significantly cheaper than battery carrier.
When purchasing a product from Joyetech Starter Kits have proven to be safe and of high quality. There are one or the other report that Nonameproduktion batteries from the load can explode and cause significant damage.
Battery Carrier
A battery carrier can be compared with a flashlight. It consists of a shell (body) of the battery (battery) and an electronic unit with switch and bulb. The electric cigarette requires a different electronics for other tasks instead of a pear and an evaporator.
Battery carrier is available for various batteries (battery as rechargeable battery). The loading capacity ranges up to 3600 mAh. This is one of the main advantages of battery makers. The energy ranges much longer than in permanently installed battery so often have to 650mAh.
Some battery carrier allow the so-called poling, ie the succession of turn two batteries, for example, the size 18350th From the punt is not advisable. There must be a lot of attention, always take for example two identical batteries of the same charge level, and much more.
Since battery carrier are greater, even more electronics can be installed there. This is often done in the form of display and the possibility of variable voltage. Then one speaks of a VV (variable volt) battery carrier.
Each evaporator has its voltage range where he concentrated on the best and tastes. It depends on the evaporator and the liquid head. With adjustable voltage range (variable voltage, VV) you can get the best out of a vaporizer. You can generate more steam or more flavor. This voltage range is usually from 3.0 to 6.0 and is adjustable in 0.1 increments.
Usual standard batteries provide about 3.2 volts. This is enough actually. But variably adjustable Voltage is an increase of steam consumption.
There are so-called mechanical battery carrier. They have nothing more than an on-off switch and completely eliminate other electronic controls. Furthermore, there is the battery carrier are minimalist in their regulations. Let us here mention the King Kong of Joyetech. These devices range from mostly full. Due to their simplicity, they are sturdy and durable. These are, so to speak, the reliable workhorses.
When the battery makers are also extremely high quality devices. Golden Greek or ProVari be mentioned here that there is also gilded. These devices are of the highest quality. Whether the output of several hundred euros worth of such a battery carrier, just for starters everyone must answer for themselves.
Battery makers at a disadvantage, the size is felt. Here one is far from a cigarette. Man holding a slim “flashlight” in hand.
Batteries – Batteries
The rechargeable batteries (rechargeable) used in battery-makers. There are protected and unprotected (protected and unprotected) batteries.
Protected batteries are slightly longer and protect themselves outgas before. This can happen if the battery is overwhelmed. If you use unprotected batteries, they should be present in the battery carrier vent holes. Otherwise, the battery carrier might explode or outgassing battery cause serious damage to the electronics. Vent holes are frequently found in the screw cap.
Since protected and unprotected batteries are of different lengths, these fit even in different devices, and other accessories necessary to obtain, for example, an extended end cap (extented cap). The dealer should know about it, what batteries fit into their respective devices. When in doubt, always ask.
Generally, a battery is protected preferable. This increases safety while loading and during use. This applies not only to electric cigarettes, but on any device with battery operation. With the electronic cigarette we are dealing with the special feature that this device is in front of our face.
The most common battery is 18650 and 18350er batteries. The 18650 is the larger of the two. A 18350er battery is not sufficient in all cases throughout the day. Therefore, I tend to devices with 18650 protected (protected) battery.
Some battery carrier can be operated with protected and unprotected (protected and unprotected) batteries. As the batteries are of different lengths, it is important to make sure that the springs inside the cover are accordingly present. Some devices are shipped with different sorts of caps to be prepared for both batteries.
Chargers
The charger determines how safe a charging process is and how long a charging needs. Devices by 7 € to 10 € are certainly not the best thing you can have. between 15 € and 25 € you get already very reasonable chargers.
Devices? are currently being evaluated as very good. Whether it always have to be expensive just for a start, you have to decide for yourself. With complete sets is not always the best recipe and the best battery charger. But to test for the beginning to the last of these accessories in any case.
Automatic or Manual?
The delivery of electricity, whether battery – unit or the battery carrier is done manually in most cases. That is, a button is pressed and the liquid is evaporated.
There is also the automatic battery. By pressurizing the battery is activated and the liquid is burned. There must therefore be no button pressed. This automatic batteries are the smoke the smoker feel nearer, that developed only by the steam train on DripTip. The disadvantage of this automatic batteries is that they can stick together when the liquid runs in automatic mode. Automatic batteries are used to find the use of lightweight devices and for example in e-cigars (cigars electric), E-light equipment such as pipes or to the SD keyring maxi.
Further Terms
Regulated Battery: that means the battery is constantly the same power from. If the battery charge falls below a certain value, the battery is switched off.
Unregulated battery: this means the battery is initially a high power to the evaporator from. The longer it is used, the less the power that arrives to the evaporator."

Commercial fossil power stations already drive their stack gas temperature about as low as practical via various heat capture methods, reheat systems, etc. The limiting factor generally is not recovering more energy from stack gasses but the desire to never drive the stack gas temperature below the dew point in that exhaust gas, doing so causes all sorts of negative chemical consequences for the stack itself, pollution control equipment, etc., increasing maintenance cost and reducing equipment life due to aggressive corrosion of stack components and structure. Plants I operated were strictly kept from dropping below dewpoint on the exhaust for this reason, not to mention temperature input constraints for effective operation of some pollution control equipment, you CAN recover more energy from stack gasses, but doing so hits a cost negative and reliability wall. Always remember that waste heat/energy for a utility station equates to large $$$, if there's a practical way to extract more energy from a given amount of fuel, they are likely there as quickly as they can implement it. But the carnot cycle and other less heat cycle related limitation put up a pretty tough barrier to going further, Perhaps this is useful for more "pure" exhaust gas or waste heat streams, but I don't see it happening for commercial fossil power stations

There's a difference between knowledge in your head and detailed knowledge written up as evidence. Yeah, I have a general idea of the governing philosophies of the ruling parties of most countries through history. I doubt you had to go put together an economic and political analysis of Venezuela before making your comment about they way they do things. Your premise there is false. I'm happy to have you present your contradictory evidence to my conclusions, though. If I'm wrong, I'll readily admit it if you show me.

the goal of socialism isn't necessarily to have things as a collective, but to provide (and ensure) things for the collective.

I'd have to disagree here. You could have an anarcho-libertarian state with it's members believing that it's the best way to organize for everyone's benefit in that state and it fits a goal of ensuring things for the collective, but you would never call it socialism. Socialism is more about the means to the goal, rather than the goal itself.

There are still some Germans around that would need to talk to you.

If you're familiar with history, you know that the National Socialists were competing with the Soviet Socialists for world power. Sure, they hated each other as part of that competition, but if you look back at newspaper and historical accounts of the time, you'll see that socialism was widely considered to be the modern, scientific way of governing for the future and the Germans were considered just as socialist.

Many Americans (and some very famous ones) considered the National Socialists the future of world socialism. It wasn't until they were on the other side in a war that they lost that retroactively they were written as non-socialist. You have to rely on more contemporary accounts, rather than accounts written by the winners.

(Just a note here, to not be misunderstood, this is by way of explanation. I don't support the ideals of either the National Socialists, nor the Red ones, and certainly don't condone the massive massacres done in their names.)

It's not a coincidence that many South American countries, like Venezuela, act more like the National Socialists. There was a heavy German influence there, both pre-war and after they lost and many fled from Germany.

having things such as public roads are inherently socialistic and very, very few people would argue that (proper) roads are not important to an economy.

There's a long history of private roads, even in the United States. Typically, they are better roads than public roads, so it's interesting that you seem to conflate "proper" roads with public roads. It's also funny you bring this up at a time where despite all the other moves towards socialism in the U.S., roads are one of the few areas where the technocrats are starting to consider privatizing much more as the latest fad in city/state management. Public roads suffer from many of the same issues as public commons, having a difficult time balancing over- (congestion) and under-use (waste), fair payment for them, determining when it's efficient to build more or expand them, etc... Privately owned and managed roads are starting to be seen by governments as a solution to those issues.

we should be systematically looking at what design works for what specific industry or goal

To quote a famous economist, "Markets are flawed, use markets." There is definitely an issue when a central planner believes they have the knowledge (socialist calculation problem) to design what works for an industry, or even knows what the "right" goal is for companies in that industry to pursue. Back to the original corruption level discussion, per public choice economics, that also leads to conflicts of interest related to possessing that power that end well for the politicians, bureaucrats and their cronies, but not for the rest of us.

Well that nearly always seems to be the case. The law of entropy applied to governments. And even a revolution is no guarantee of stopping the decline. See Egypt. Maybe the USSR was a rare exception since IIRC there was no actual civil war before the change. Even if it is not impossible the odds are not good.
