    Default THANKS TOM

    Just finished building the battery eliminator. Adjusted the voltage to 1.499VDC, pump seemed slow. Upped the voltage to 1.67VDC. Pumping and purring great.

    Want to thank CANEPOLE for the inspiration and help in building this project.

    Will reduce the amount of voltage converters, pumps, wires, air hoses that I normally carry when using minnows.

    THANKS AGAIN Tom.

    My pleasure as always.

    I set mine to 1.65V. My motor draws 33ma on high speed and 31ma on low speed. Not much of a savings in battery power (less than 10%). The slow speed is accomplished by switching in a germanium diode in series with the battery power to the motor. The germanium provides about a .33V drop to the applied voltage.

    I don't usually turn the pump on til the ice melts though.

    Just a little tech info.

    Default made adjustment easy

    I made two battery eliminators and adjusted the voltage to 1.65 VDC. Placed in the bubblers and thought that I could get a little extra volume of air if I increased the voltage output.
    With the unit closed, it requires disassemble, so the cure for that was to calculate where the adjustment screw is on the pot, drill a hole large enough for a small screwdriver over the potentiometer.
    Now the voltage can be adjusted while a load is placed on the battery eliminator.
    THANKS TO CANE POLE for the project. .

    Thanks Canepole, you sure are an invaluable member here a Crappie.Com I think the crappie boss here should fix this site so that all your neat tricks & ttips go into a special folder for future reading.
    or at least assign ssomeone to place it in a special Canepole TIPS & THOUGHTS site at the beginning(?) of this site.


    Good fishing to you & Brenda. jax

    While replacing my 'd' cells thought there has to be a better way. Thanks for the way. Will build when parts arrive.--shu
