You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Sailing Dog - I believe that only you fail to see that this thread is an ego thing with you. How about we let Sailing Dog win? You certainly have more tenacity than any other poster on this thread. Get over yourself already.

Maybe A Break In The Mystery????


CJoe...reading your "technical summary" post above it occurred to me that there may be an alternate explanation for our disagreement. Let me highlight in bold the section of that post which I refer to AND a segment of the BlueSky controller description you posted yesterday and a couple of other quotes you made in the last 24 hours that got me thinking:
CJ-"I will once again submit that I saw a maximum of 79.9AH out of the SolarStik"
"I stand by what I have reported all along. 79.9AH maximum in one day. 0AH after the sun went down"
"I measured the output of the panels AND the output of the charge controller buy observing the digital meter ON the charge controller."


BlueSky-"The display shows battery voltage, solar panel current and output charge current"
************************************************** ******
Here is the new possibility:
Since you have stated that your measurement was only done with the charge controller display...you simply READ the display wrong at some point on that sunny day and momentarily were reading 7.99 AMPS rather than 79.9 AMP HOURS.


THE BLUE SKY DISPLAY DOES NOT AND CANNOT MEASURE AMP HOURS...It only measures output charge current which is AMPS!!

Tell me I am right and we can forget the last gazillion posts. If I am wrong then we...
1. Need to know how YOU measured AMP HOURS since you stated the charge controller was the only device used and that is where you got your reading.

2. Need to give you 30 lashes for once again confusing electrical terms.

Susan-

I was actually interested in finding out whether Conchy Joe is really an "uncompensated" product reviewer, and what his qualifications are. His basic errors with the fundamentals of electrical theory had me wondering about whether he was at all qualified to write a review about a product. The fact that almost all of what he wrote was either cribbed from the SolarStik marketing materials or factually questionable made me wonder what is really going on.

It didn't help his case that whenever anyone had a pertinent and relevant criticism, he accused them of attacking him personally.

Finally, he said that the military was able to get 100 AH out of one in Kuwait during a 16-hour day.
Quote:

Just an FYI.
However, due to Kuwait's geographic location, unless the Earth stopped spinning for a bit, it isn't possible for Kuwait to have a 16-hour day—ever.

So either he is lying through his teeth or exxagerating to the point where there is no real difference, which seems to be the more plausible option, or the Earth miraculously stopped so that the military could get 16 hours of sunlight in Kuwait...

Or, finally, he read the display on the BlueSky controller as Cam has pointed out and is too ignorant to realize the difference between Amps and Amp-hours... which is quite similar to a mistake he has already admitted to.

BTW, I am not attacking Conchy Joe, even though I am using words that are less than glowing to describe him... but describing the situation as I see it, accurately.

Conchy Joe-

I've already answered those questions, and most of the people on this site know my credentials, and I've posted on a wide range of subjects on these forums.

LeLaLu...LOL...THOSE AREN'T MY WORDS YOU QUOTED...the post you attributed quoted from me was actually a quote from your buddy CJOE in several posts above mine. Are you turning on your friends now!!??

By the way...I don't have any experience directly with time machines either but I know they don't work as claimed by some either.

Cam-

I'd also point out that CJ did clearly attack me...he called me British... damn.. that's almost as bad as being called French... or Portugese...

SailingDog...you are wrong about Cjoes website stats. It is entirely possible to have 25000 hits and very little traffic. Many people mistakenly associate hits to mean VISITS to the Site by individuals OR Page views. Neither is true and NO ADVERTISER pays for HITS.
A hit is a download of a specific element on a single web page!! Looking at this web page just once by one person would generate perhaps 100 or more hits.
So...I think you need to withdraw your charges about CJoe being a compensated commercial poster. He has said he is not AND I can tell you that NO advertiser is going to pay for space on a site with 100 registered users and 400 posts. As he said...it is a young site so that is not a slam. Just the fact.
