    Thanks for sharing.

    John I had to run so low because of what I was trying to achieve with the low voltage cap dump. The issue is that once the battery is full I need the bleeders to pull off excess to maintain the 14.6 voltage. If I crank up the front then they cannot keep up and the voltage rises too high at the end. I described it a few posts back but I know it's not as clear in your thought as it is mine since your not working on it. I can charge them very fast relative to this run if I want but I have to catch it at exactly the right time and turn it off or they go way high at the end which is really bad for LifePO4. It's really just a matter of having a bleeder on the back that could drain off however much current I push once the top voltage is reached. I am trying to make it so that at no point in time the voltage those cells goes over 14.8 or so.

    I have thought about taking a zener diode and putting on the gate of a FET with the drain and source connected to the battery with a light bulb between. Put the zener to the pos and when the voltage is reached to pass through it then the fet closes and the light burns off the extra. Basically the same as the small bleeders do but across the whole battery. If I could get something like that working then I could increase the draw to as much as the bulb could keep up with.

    I have kind of set this aside for now since I am building the new 3D project and my commercial lifePO4 charger works fine.

    why not try the "linear current amplifier" link I sent you a couple weeks ago... check ur PM's anyone can search and find...

    anything i've posted like this on this sight gets taken down fairly quickly.

    Great idea Patrick. I watched the video you posted. I'm not sure how close that guy is to Bedini's circuit but it does look pretty effective.

    I appreciate your sharing that video and it is interesting for sure.

    A few things I want to mention however. I did watch that video and the other part three that guy had. In part three he gets the dials working and had some LED's showing his voltage control. That's good but it leaves a lot of the problem on the table.

    As I said in my first comment about Mr. Bedini's video, what does he do with the surplus energy when the voltage has been reached. This guy in the video is feeding his circuit at least in the part 3 with a battery, we all know a battery will only give what the load asks for but hooking up a running SSG is quite a different beast. That energy is going to come and keep coming no matter what and you must do something with it of it will destroy itself. Think what happens if you disconnect a charge battery while running or hook up a shorted battery.

    Well automagically switching off the charge battery would be the same result. The problem boils down to the same thing I am already looking at and that is burning of excess energy once charged (unless your there to stop it). I did not do the run in my video on extremely low settings because I could not control the voltage, I can run very high and have the same voltage control with timing adjustments, I ran low because of the finishing phase.

    It is not totally about the last cut off voltage though. If it were then I could cap dump or run normal mode one until reaching 14.6 and cut off if I had the way, but no this is about never showing the anode more than 14.6v, in other words dampening the spike before it gets to the LifePO4 chemistry. That is why I am buffering with that cap and not just running full on to the battery.
