Hello /diy/, any electrofags here? so i got this little powerbank right here and it only charges my devices for like 3 minutes and then it stops charging. now this happened from one day to another, so the other charging cycle before that it worked fine and charged for hours. the battery also merely has ~80 cycles or so. being the technology illterate faggot I am I opened it up, which was easy as fuck by the way, that thing has a screw thread and the plastic cap was just held in place by some foil, and measured voltages. the battery was at 4.15V after I emptied it and that's fine voltage, far from empty. weirdly the thing output 5.3V which is alot for USB isn't it? Anyways, I charged it up again (which only took a few minutes of course since it already was at 4.15V) and then measured the battery's voltage while it was charging my phone. it dropped very fast. so fast that after 3 minutes it was at 2.7V and at that voltage it stopped charging again. then the voltage of course rised very fast, up to over 4V. What is happening and how can I fix it?
Hey /diy/. Battery question... 7 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey /diy/. Battery question here, I know you guys tend to know your stuff. I'd love some help trying to get a replacement battery for my laptop that lasts longer, and actually understand what it all means/how it works. Current battery: 11.1 volts 3500mAH 39wh Rated for 3 hours max life, I get 2. Need it for school, fixed it myself, and need it to last longer. I understand larger mAH should help, as would a higher wh. But I'm sure there's other considerations. I've found a few that say they're for the same model laptop. (vaio vpcee32fx) but have different specs. Wondering which one would work, work best, and why, if anyone can break it down for me. Others I found: 11.1V, 5800mAh, 64Wh 10.8V, 6600mAh (doesn't list Wh) 11.1V (10.8V OK) 5200mAh (doesn't list Wh) Again, some help in understanding would be awesome!

Good afternoon gentlemen of /diy/ From watching and reading a lot of reviews on products i started thinking, how do they get their stuff and how much they make a month? I've seen PewDiePie getting a brand new Razer laptop, but okay he is too popular.. other people, bloggers, get bikes worth of 3k to review, pretty awesome. So how does one get into a business of blogging?

Hey guys I'm planning on making an RC fan powered car. I was wondering if you had any suggestions for where I could find what I'll need. So far I'm planning on just getting an RC car from the store and then taking the top off, removing the motor, and attaching the fan. My main concern is wiring the fan to the circuit board and a brake system. Any help?

this board is filled with idiots but i'll ask anyway. i need to make a gasket to mate two metallic chambers that will be under mild pressure - 10 to 30 psi. i think i can put a shitload of rtv on one surface, and place spacers here and there, and put a shitload of pressure holding the two together while the rtv cures. any ideas as to how i could improve this?

Complete /diy/noob here, can someone tell me if this is a pump... I'm pretty sure it is because it looks like one and one section says "out", but can it be used for water? Also how the hell do I connect this to power? See pics related

So I am getting frustrated with finding batterys for my projects. I was wondering how dangerous it would be to chop off the USB element of a cell charger and stick that into my breadboard. Seems like it would be safe to me, but I am asking DIY so I don't get myself killed.
Hey /diy/I have nowhere else... 6 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey /diy/ I have nowhere else to go with this and google isn't bringing up much helpful info So I bought a second hand 3ds from a gamestore, They gave me a receipt and all that but the reason I bought this 3ds secondhand was because it had 4.5 software which I needed for the Gateway 3ds I was going to buy for it. After all of this, I was playing a game a few minutes and realized something The mother FUCKING niglet who had this 3ds before me fucked up the X button somehow and it's unresponsive unless I push on it hard. Is there anything I can do besides take this back and start a search for another rare as fuck 4.5 3ds?
