  3. Hello admin and mods, can we have a dark mode or dark theme option to choose from? Thanks.
  4. So far not experienced it. My s9+ battery was swapped earlier this year and it wasnt swollen.
  5. Installed iRoad X9 in my car last year. Had set the voltage threshold to 11.8 V. Went for a vacation for 7 days. When I came back I could not unlock the car with smart key and could not start the engine. The iRoad had drained the car battery. So it looks like after it detects 11.8 V it does not disconnect the power. It still draws power from the car battery. Lesson learnt. Remove the power plug and USB cable from the camera if you are going on vacation. I don't know which workshops can install the battery pack that is discussed in some forums.

  10. I was almost locked out of my car after dinner and tried multiple times before the key finally worked. I also realised that the key in my fob is a dummy key and I cannot unlock my car door using the traditional key lol. I've had to replace the CR2032 battery twice in less than one year of ownership. The previous one was a Mitsubishi branded one which lasted slightly more than three months. Right now I'm using this cheap $1 Maxell one which I bought from a random convenience shop that was still open last night. Three questions: How long does the battery in your key fob usually

Battery science is a pretty undeveloped field, which is why we're still using lithium-ion instead of ultra-efficient metal air or sodium chemistry. During the period when burning fuel to generate power was always the easiest option, there wasn't a motivation to make storage a priority an

  18. My Hitachi car battery in my Honda Shuttle Hybrid died on me a few days ago. Sadly, it lasted only 1.5 years, and could not start my engine after I WFH for a few days. Luckily, I managed to get a nice guy to come down within 20 min to re-start my car for $25. Thereafter, I went to a car workshop to change to a new battery. Initially, I wanted to install the cheaper advertised Amaron car battery ($70). However, the technician looked at my hybrid engine and recommended the Varta Blue car battery ($110), which he said was specifically for the start-stop engine. He said it could easily l

  21. Hi I just change my Amazon battery less than 10 month ago from AA, however, yesterday the batt is weak and I could not start and get AA mechanical to come down and check, he managed to jumpstart and check, his reason was the car electronic fault and not the battery, the car electronic eg: Sound system, light, video camera etc are drawing current from the battery even through the car engine is off.

Toyota is partnering with Panasonic to put solid-state batteries into limited production in 2025, but don't expect them on your Toyota vehicle that soon. For one thing, the automaker still needs to solve the problem that plagues solid-state batteries: a short life span. Toyota has chosen to focus on hybrid and hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles as the cornerstones o
  24. Talking about battery, I realized those dry cell batteries these days lifespan getting shorter and don't last as long as before. It seems like I'm changing battery like once a year. Recently, the AD advised me that the battery voltage low already, time to change a new one. Wonder should I switch to those need to top-up battery liquid type? Heard from friends that they tend to laster longer. So whats your experience with car battery these days? Regards
