Non-honoured misprice is a waste of everyone's time though.

Yes Freakstyler easy to set up with a bit of research... Could power the Shed, Garden Lights everything you said with just one of these, can attach a 12v Battery as well to store the Energy.

Only Available on Back-Order now... Might be worth the Wait though

I have a couple of cheap eBay charge controllers, go for one with an lcd screen rather than led's as they use less power plus you can monitor voltage and load easier. A 20w panel will maintain a fully charged battery with a few hours direct sunlight per day with occasion use of the battery at low loads, I have a 20w panel in the garden maintaining a 75ah battery and use it to recharge powerbanks, other batteries, phones, iPads etc and voltage never drops below 13v.

Original Poster

Yes I got mine from "Said" Site, though not set it all up yet, plus have 5 which I can join together. Will need some MC4 leads as None come out of the Panel, though with a bit a research could be a good investment for Garden Lights etc. Or keep one and sell the rest for £20 each on "Said" Site

Ah ok. Thanks. Do you know where I can get a suitable charger?



That's an awkward question to answer without knowing your bike battery and whether you intend using the charger for other uses such as a car as well. Also depends on what fly lead you have connected to your battery, you have not said which type and if you are willing to swap the leads connected to your battery for TM or used a converter to TM if you intended on using this extension lead.

Sorry, you really are going to have to be more forthcoming with details for an answer.

Just to clarify the cable connected to your battery is not an Optimate … Just to clarify the cable connected to your battery is not an Optimate cable, there is no such thing...you may have an Optimate branded cable of either an SAE or TM connector but that fly lead can be changed or converted to any battery charger that you wish to use.

I didn't criticise anything and I haven't voted either way. They're … I didn't criticise anything and I haven't voted either way. They're clearing out old stock that's why it's so cheap. I simply pointed out it was for older Optimates. I work in the trade and the amount of people that assume all Optimate products fit their chargers is unbelievable. I was trying to help people but you've obviously got it in your head that I'm slating the deal which is incorrect.



Well considering you came into the thread to criticise rather than vote then yes, it is useful for anyone that has a charger with a TM connector like myself, or for that matter anyone that wants to convert from SAE to TM....

As for them clearing out old stock, and you being in the trade, I am afraid you are wrong, because the item was out of stock a few weeks ago (as I was going to order in April) and back in again, do you work for RS Supplies to know they are clearing out old stock? Do you know that Accumate/Optimate have actually stopped manufacturing and supporting their chargers (some are still being sold with TM Connectors) with these cables?

I see you took umbrage a few years ago with people voting cold on your battery charger deal.....how about you actually think outside of the box and realise this is a bloody good deal for anyone that needs a TM connector extension lead, whether it be an older Optimate model or not. And as already said I am pretty sure the photos I provided as well as a clear description in the heading was enough, but I did also add that disclaimer about newer Optimates...but bear in mind this extension lead is not just for Optimates.....

Just because its branded Optimate does not mean that is all its compatible with as already stated. Tamiya connectors are used for many purposes from battery chargers to car connections to radio controlled cars etc.

So happens that as stated I have an Oxford Oximiser 900 their 3 metre OF705 cable with TM Connectors retails for £10, this Oximate TM73 2.5 metre usually retails for around the same price.

Correct! Media centres need to be hard wired Wi-Fi is terrible at streaming.
A Pi2 is great at running kodi especially if you overclock it, it's smooth and stable.
I haven't found anything else that is small enough to go behind our wall mounted kitchen TV that uses the TV's remote via HDMI CEC.

People that expect the world for £30 quid annoy me, for what they are the Pi2 is excellent.

Better late than never (?): usually just have to short the USB data connections to remove the current-limit.

I ordered a couple of these which got delivered quickly to work (I'll pick them up in the New Year). In the meantime, I'm powering my Pi 2 with a 2A adapter that came with my Samsung Tab S 10.5" with no problems (and all 4 USB ports occupied with a USB 3.0 stick, a USB Freeview HD tuner, a keyboard and a mouse) - no sign of the rainbow square indicating under-voltage.

As a fun experiment, I just ordered a 10000 mAh Xiaomi Power Bank from GearBest for 7.95 quid (that price only holds for 4 more hours after this posting though!), but it's coming from China so probably will turn up in 1-2 weeks. Yes, there'll be a scratch-off code with it to confirm it's genuine (no way am I using it without confirming it's not fake - this power bank in particular is known to have many fakes). If it makes my Pi 2 portable for several hours, I'll be happy, otherwise I'll just use it on the phones/tablets I already have.

I have the Xiaomi and and cannot recommend it. They have it locked down so that it can be used only with their buggy app which is largely in Chinese. They have also disabled RTSP which kind of misses the whole point of an IP camera. A Russian forum is working on a hack for the 2.1 hardware version but it's far from done.

how easy is to load Kodi on this please? (for dummies)



For dummies? You got it!

You need an sd card or a micro-sd with an sd card adapter and you need to be able to plug it into a Windows PC (to follow my guide), so do that first so the PC/laptop recognizes it. If not you can't continue with my guide.

Download OpenELEC image (efficient Linux OS with Kodi): http://releases.openelec.tv/OpenELEC-RPi.arm-5.0.8.img.gz
Download Win32DiskImager: http://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/

When that's done. Extract OpenELEC-RPi.arm-5.0.8.img.gz (with WinRAR or another archive software) and install Win32DiskImager. Run Win32DiskImager and locate the drive (Device) where the sd card is located. Then locate the image (Image File) you extracted and press "Write".

Once that's done. Plug in the Pi (as you should know how to do that already). It will boot up OpenELEC and Kodi will appear.

Love my B+, and this is great price. If you have any low cpu intensive projects ie. VPN, NAS, FTP, etc.

Choose the Pi 2 if you're thinking kodi, the B+ makes the UI borderline usable at times.

how easy is to load Kodi on this please? (for dummies)
