      So where’s pt 2?

        Sorry, I had to get some sleep. The Youtube uploads take longer because they are much bigger files. Part 2 was available as a direct MP3 download, so those who watch that way (iTunes ect) have already seen it! Uploading to Youtube now.

      Hi David, I love the eps where you actually open something up and give a brief description, would you mind giving a short description of how diodes can be used to detect temperature?

      • Lionel

        With silicon diodes, Vf changes with temperature in a very predictable way, so they make a great “poor mans” temperature sensors. They’re not so good for measuring absolute temperature, but they’re very reliable for measruing temperature differentials (eg; ambient vs local). Check the data sheet for a 1N4148 or 1N4001 for details.

      Hi Dave. Well done on the blogs. I especially loved the rant 3:00 minutes into #35 with the Star Trek & Stargate references as did my 17 year old son. More of these humorous bits please 😉
      Anyway great job, keep them coming!

      Bought a Varta 15 minute NiMH Battery Charger and got to say maybe I should not have purchased one. The leds are shining in red with the batteries it came with.

      most battery chargers do not have an automatic termincation if the batteries are fully charged already ‘
