What Is A Deep Cycle Battery?

A lead-acid battery that is designed to be deeply discharged during use is called a deep cycle battery (DCB). They are re-chargable and meant to be used over and over again.They differ from starter batteries (CS), like those in an automobile, that are designed to deliver short bursts of high current to crank an engine to start it. They rarely use more than a small portion of their stored capacity. A DCB may be used as a CS, however, with the lower "cranking amps" it puts out, it would generally need to be over-sized.Deep-cycle batteries are generally 50-80 percent discharged during their normal cycle of use. They may be cycled down to as far as 20 percent but this decreases lifespan and increases cost of replacements. It is not a recommended practice.As a rule of thumb, 50 percent discharge is the optimum rate to get the best service out of these products. This is linked directly to the number of times they may be charged/discharged over the useful life of the battery.The main difference between deep cycle an...

 


Portable Air Compressor to the Rescue

Last week I decided to help my Dad power wash the cedar siding on his house. It has been about 15 years since it was last done, and it was really showing signs of needing help. The mold and darkened surface was significant. Anyway, I decided to use a regular gasoline power washer to clean the wood. It worked like a charm, and before lone, the job was done and sitting there dry. Since it needs some time to fully dry out before applying stain, I had some time to consider how I wanted to apply it. Of course, brushing is probably the very best way to really get the stain into the wood, but I was also interested in saving a little time. I preferred to just use a sprayer to apply the stain. My search soon revealed that a portable air compressor was something I would "need". Funny how our wants and needs intersect at times, isn't it?I found a nice air powered air gun at a local hardware store. At first it seemed just perfect. I was about to buy it when I noticed on the little description card that it was not recomme...

 


Assessing the Quality of Storm Doors and Metal Gates

Anyone who wants to protect their home knows the value of installing storm doors and metal gates. While all manufacturers will tout their products as being of the best quality, this is not always true. As such, it is important to know how what to look for when buying storm doors.It is also important to know that cost is not necessarily an indicator of quality. Some metal doors while not expensive can stand up to the elements and break-in attempts. Conversely, some expensive storm storms will not live up to expectations.When checking out storm doors you need to think about security, weather protection, or both as these will play a part in any buying decision. If security is the main aim, then look for those that have security grills as part of the design. If weather protection is the prime concern, bear in mind that some types of material such as wood, will not stand up to lots of rain.What to Look For in Storm DoorsThere are many ways to learn what to look for when evaluating the quality of storm doors and me...
