Re: Atoning for my Sins as a Test Hoarder

Kinda bs in my opinion. All us test hoarders should unite as one and post it on our little private chat. Getting rid of sins to other test hoarders. Yeah, this would be pretty scummy. Posting tests without deliberation is impulsive, but still with good intentions. I cannot say the same for your pro...

Re: Mission Possible C

Regardless, they would not count as another "battery source" so you would be good for the bonus. So even if they’re being powered off of ambient light and they’re powering another thing within your device, they don’t count as a power source? For reference, they’re kind of like mini solar cells. The...

Re: Final Action

For those of you who have been using those small recordable devices, how have you gotten around the fact that most of them have (lithium) coin batteries? As far as I know, none of those recordable devices run on regular non lithium batteries (although at our regional, the event supervisor didn’t as...

Re: Chem Lab B/C

Answer:|C. Temperature is constant during a phase change and is proportional to average kinetic energy of the particles. This question was on an invitational test: and I am pretty confident though my answer was marked wrong. What do you think: As a substance undergoes a change from the solid to the...

Re: Hovercraft B/C

Can anybody provide a link for connectors? I'm trying to find a way to connect the 8.4 v NiMH battery pack to the rest of my circuit. There are tons of different types, each with advantages and disadvantages. Amazon, ebay, hobbyking, other hobby shops, etc. Some examples to look up are xt60, turnig...
