Sadly, no. I've had to spend far too much time working lately.theWebalyst wrote:Any projects in hand? Aspirations?
Only the occasional tinkering with the B3, some new script or such things.
Likely less efficient, as it still requires a DC input and some loss should be expected in that step as well. On the other hand, that input does not have to be regulated so in terms of efficiency that would be as high as you could possibly get (and at low price as well).Ubi wrote:I was contemplating this just now. This looks very interesting indeed. How much more energy-efficient is it compared to separate PSUs?
I'm truly sorry about that. Point being that what you can calculate using theory may in fact be completely different in practice. Savings might be better or they may in fact turn out to be a loss. All 'n all it is $100 plus a battery for something that does what you already got. Assuming you could save 5% on your electricity bill that would count up to about €2 per year where I live and unless you're some kind of green fanatic that just doesn't cut it. I on the other hand am tempted and I wonder if I could use the unused telephone wires inside the CAT5 cables to offer that 12V DC throughout the house.Cheeseboy wrote:Thanks for your feedback guys!
That OpenUPS thing really looks interesting.
But what Gordon wrote in his last post made me a bit dizzy in the head for a while there.
You just did. I was just editing my last post, when I got an email about you already responding to it.May I do it again sometime?
