[19:38] <phatmonkey> jcoxon: what lithium batteries did you use?
[19:39] <jcoxon> energizer
[19:40] <jcoxon> AAA Energizer ultimate lithium
[19:42] <phatmonkey> do they last for ages?
[19:42] <phatmonkey> I might just stick a bunch in parallel for our parcel
[19:43] <phatmonkey> it doesn't really matter if they run out!
[19:43] <jcoxon> yeah, seems so
[19:43] <phatmonkey> I guess as many as is reasonable
[19:43] <jcoxon> they powered pegasus III and were still running 6 hours later when we collected it
[19:43] <jcoxon> not sure how much longer they would go on for
[19:43] <phatmonkey> yeah
[19:43] <phatmonkey> I'll just stick loads in
[19:43] <jcoxon> hmmm, not my fault if the post office get upset
[19:45] <phatmonkey> I'm having trouble getting the wireless network card working
[19:45] <phatmonkey> might just stick a gps in
[19:45] <phatmonkey> they're 3v per cell aren't they?
[19:45] <jcoxon> nope 1.5v
[19:45] <phatmonkey> ah, ok
[19:46] <phatmonkey> the 5v slug should run fine on 6v I guess
[19:46] <jcoxon> yeah
[19:46] <phatmonkey> everything is working fine pwoered off usb, which is very neat
[19:46] <phatmonkey> wireless card and gps work just with usb power
[19:46] <jcoxon> cool
[19:59] <phatmonkey> why did you use AAA?
[20:00] <phatmonkey> http://www.battery-force.co.uk/show_Lithium_Batteries.html
[20:00] <phatmonkey> there AAA and AA are the same price
[20:00] <phatmonkey> and AA have twice the capacity
[20:00] <jcoxon> yeah but aaa are so much lighter
[20:00] <phatmonkey> alright
[20:00] <phatmonkey> weight is no issue for this :D
[20:01] <phatmonkey> I'll just buy loads of them I guess
[20:01] <phatmonkey> and fill up the parcel with batteries...
[20:01] <jcoxon> bbl
[20:01] <phatmonkey> well, not too many, or it'll be terribly expensive
[20:01] <phatmonkey> they're cheaper than I thought actually
[20:01] <phatmonkey> ok
