Some thoughtful modelers have gone to magnificent lengths
to incorporate some of my battery dissertations in their home pages. With all this "disserting" I have neglected
to gain the requisite skills to make up really fantastic home pages, ergo I am obliged to direct your concentration to the
links provided below.
Basic Ni-Cd Stuff....The seminar presented to commercial customers around the world. At the incessant urging of a number of visitors
I finally added the charts and graphs. Long overdue. Thanks for your patience, now I can get back to gluing balsa together

Mark Venis, Vencon Technologies, collected some of my
random rantings on batteries. Comments on Ni-MH are somewhat dated. Things have improved
significantly over the past few years with this technology. from the the newsgroup, rec.models.rc.air, saving you the trouble of going to Google and searching them out. Mark

The Battery Discussions in the Archives linked at the top of this page are in
no way intended to denigrate the work of others on the subject of batteries. However, it is not uncommon for errors to creep
into battery related articles since the industry has done a rather poor job in educating the end users with the result that
many battery myths have filled the voids. Since retirement I have made it my undertaking to share as much battery information
as possible with the modeling public, information which until now been held back by the industry for "marketing"
or "commercial" reasons or perhaps because the average consumer could care less.
