I am a science teacher in western NY. I enjoy projects and learning. Music is wonderful. The world outdoors is essential for human perspective. Technology is fascinating (almost to a flaw!). My interests and personality resonate with the sparkfun community. Thank you!

  • has anything come of this?

  • I appreciate your service and perspectives~ Thank you.

  • TimCole,
    do you have any resources that you can recommend for working with lipo batteries in series and parallel? I would like to design a battery system that utilizes 3.7v 200mAh single cells in various series/parallel arrangements to increase voltage and maximize mAh. I would also like to charge the system with a standard usb port if possible. I know lipo batteries can be dangerous so I’m hesitant to experiment… can you help?
    Thanks for your time!

No public wish lists :(
