    Holy shit, I've been looking for this all fucking night. 

    While this is traditionally used for vehicle and bike parts, this lube is great for keyboard stabilizers.  I'm gonna add some to my Kira, the stabilizers could be a bit smoother. 

     

    @Den-Fi.com Not sure if you know about this stuff or not.  It's perfectly safe on all plastics and is 10 dollars on Amazon.

  2.  

    These will make great little batteries for portable projects.  They seem cheap enough online as well, they are LG branded batteries.

     

    Anyway, search "lgdbmg11865" to get these batteries. 

     

    @Windows7ge Tagging you again, although I think that you already found them.  Sorry if my tagging you is bothering you.

      @Windows7ge Don't worry about it, I don't get the terminology right often as well.  But buck/ step down can be used interchangeably, as well as boost/ step up.

       

      And yeah, in theory that should work, it would still be in your best intrest to put a resistor on the positive or negative part of the LED though.  Even if you have the right voltage, fluctuations in current can still fry it, and a resistor mitigates that.

       

      Not sure if you have the money for resistors though.

      The website I buy the stuff from is crazy cheap but I have to wait about a month for the parts to show up. I have a box full of goodies. Cost me about $100. If I know what value resistors I need getting them cheaply shouldn't be hard.

    4. Skanky Sylveon

      Skanky Sylveon

      I just buy a variaty package, there should be a calculator online that gives you the best resistor value for your particular LED and voltage value @Windows7ge.

  3. Alright, fully charged lithium batteries. 

    20190420_160231.thumb.jpg.40a55275b14dbe82db6bcaf6d65764ae.jpg

     

    So they are probably 4.2v batteries, since the cheaper millimeters have a bit of resistance in their cables and circuitry.

    Gonna charge 4 more.

    That universal charger can charge several types of batteries simultaneously. 

    20190419_202212.thumb.jpg.05ba22596ae1007d63d9cd53a8ef42eb.jpg

     

    As can be seen, it is expensive at 50 dollars, but worth every penny. 

     

    Tagging @Windows7ge because he seemed intrested.

      @Windows7ge These are actually 11865 batteries, which from my measuring seem to be about 5mm shorter then 18650 batteries.  They seem mostly compatible with 18650 housings though, and when in doubt, aluminum foil is your friend. 

    3. Windows7ge

      Windows7ge

      That was a laptop battery pack right? I wonder why they opted for those. Maybe the width of it required the use of shorter batteries.

       

      All the batteries I've saved out of battery packs are 18650s of varying brands.

      @Windows7ge My assumption would be that, keep in mind that this was a relatively recent laptop (cat destroyed it by peeing on it) so if you are mostly taking apart old laptops, it may be a recent change. 

  4. Well, yeah. I didn't really bring that up because most people that can't afford a new pair of headphones probably can't afford a new phone either, but there are factors like having to replace a damaged or stolen phone. So yeah, budget is a huge deciding factor as well, perhaps the biggest.

    @ARikozuM Is this how religion works?

      I think this is a satirical video. 

      The fact that they referenced Dr. Robotnic and not Eggman confirms that they are serious as all fuck.

      @Jtalk4456 The big black man has already atoned for his sins involving barns.

       

      Telling the fake scientists off and throwing the trigonometry baby into the ocean. 

       

      We should all thank god for the big black man.

      its surprising how good some songs sound in a whole new format

      i recommend 10 second songs

      also this one gets me every time

  9. Now that you mention it, it kinda does. I feel that at this point arguing with OP is pointless though. He clearly just wants to live in an echo chamber. Samsung still makes phones with headphone jacks, but we are talking about Samsung here, they aren't exactly the saving grace of the smartphone industry. Honestly, after my discussion with @mr moose I really want a phone that has a 40 pin GPIO connector on the back. That design would actually be easy to make water resistant with some epoxy over the exposed PCB and having the phone detect a short like my note does. It would make a very large amount of peripherals available for the phone on the get go, and no shortage anytime soon. Thoughts on that idea?
  10. I think that the main reason why previous designs failed was due to the lack of any standards. The ATX form factor for example is a standard that the vast majority of motherboards use. That allows pretty much mostly universal compatibility for PCIe peripherals. For a modular phone design to gain any traction there will need to be a widely accepted and adopted motherboard standard that several phone manufacturers must agree on. I actually discussed a simaler concept with @TopHatProductions115 a few months ago in regards to laptops. This is unfortunately unlikely to happen due to the vast changes in phone motherboard design due to the desire to make phones thinner among other things. Not to mention the challenges of making a design like that water resistant. It's just a shame, I see many addons available to the raspberry pi via the 40 pin GPIO, and I have thought to myself many times "damn, I really wish that there was something like that for my phone" several single board computers also have identical GPIO pinouts simaler to that of a raspberry pi, so it's becoming somewhat of a standard in the single board computer realm. I went off on a tangent tbere didn't I?
  11. @food158 I think that wireless makes a very good compliment to wired, and can be a good replacement in certain instances. Emphasis on certain. The removal of the headphone jack is part subjective and part objective. The subjective part is that many people perfer certain headphones over others, and most of the better sounding headphones (subjectively speaking of course) tend to be wired. The objective part is that apple removed functionality that doesn't have a proper replacement, and that wireless audio has a lot of disadvantages as well, many of which are convenience related. The problem with OP's logic is that he's assuming that wireless audio is competing with wired, which is far from the truth. Many wired speakers are geared toward the outdoorsman, having features like water resistance and portability, while a wired pair will focus on sound quality and ease of integration. While there is overlap they are largely geared towards separate audiences. One isn't inherently better than the other, it's purely dependent on the individual's needs whether or not wireless is more valued then wired technology. Apple shoving what they think is best down everyone's throats is what people largely have a problem with. If apple cared about this planet then they would be in support for right to repair, and I'm not even talking about legislation, I'm talking about supporting independent repair technicians repairing what would normally be trashed by apple. E-waste is a rather large problem. @mr moose While phones are hardly a good device when it comes to backwards compatibility I would like to see some kind of standard across the board such as the ATX standard on desktops. Don't need a headphone jack? Great, populate that module with more storage or RAM. I've seen a few single board computers that have an EMMC slot for adding whatever amount of storage fits your budget. I would imagine that a slot with simaler dimensions could be used as a PCIe slot for phones of sorts, perhaps only an x1 connection, but that would still provide an insane amount of flexibility and customization to one's mobile device.
  12. What the hell does them being a brand have to do with them pushing technology forward? All that I can see is that you are defending a choice that apple made which heavily inconvenienced thousands of people. People have a right to be mad about that decision, and to be frank, I don't give a damn what apple is. All I care about is if they make products that I'm interested in. Nothing more, nothing less. If you saw the ifixit teardown image that I linked you, you would see that the apple watch actually uses less adhesive. https://www.permabond.com/technical_support/temperature-effects/ https://www.hotmelt.com/blogs/blog/how-temperature-changes-can-affect-hot-melt-adhesivbuy-1080-gtx A quick Google search will give you the information on the stability of certain adhesives at various temperatures. Furthermore, the anecdotal evidence strawman can be taken apart due to the fact that adhesive performance can and has been understood for decades. It doesn't matter on what device the adhesive is applied to, they will perform the same if they are in identical environments. A gasket design isn't real thin, but if you actually had any experience with taking electronics with you when diving you would know that pretty much every waterproof (not water resistant, actually water proof) camera case uses gaskets and screws with a specific torque specification. Gasket designs are also particularly expensive, phone manufacturers didn't remove screws because they were inferior to plastic clips, they were removed due to them adding thickness and price to the final product. Also,calling me a kid when you are using "u" instead of "you". Priceless. No, we wouldn't be waiting forever, take firewire for example. Don't group the entirety of humanity in the same relm as your line of thinking. Doing so is an insult to just about everyone who isn't a shill for their favorite company. Also, apple isn't even a century old, so no, we wouldn't be a century behind if your favorite company didn't exist. I REALLY hope that apple is paying you good money to spout your nonsense, because if not, you're a rather sad individual.
