  1. The suicide rate will increase!!! For people who struggle with depression etc it will be a hugely challenging time. As always there will be people 'taking advantage' of the situation but there will be a lot of people who need help, not just shopping, but help to stay mentally OK. PS I didn't read the articles.
  2. LiPo is Lithium Polymer. Li-Ion is Lithium Ion. A lot of battery packs use 18650 Li-Ion batteries . I believe for long term storage (months) it is best to store at 40-50% capacity. (3.77-3.87V per cell). I'm not sure how you would do that on a pack as normally you can't see cell voltage but overall pack voltage. A fully charged Li-Ion should be 4.2v per cell. Nominal voltage is 3.6v so your pack is probably 10 x 18650 in series and a number of 10 in series connected in parallel to get the 15Ah. So I am guessing fully charged your 36v battery is more like 42v! So at 3.80 (50% ish) your pack should read about 38V. Sorry if it's too complex. But just don't store them fully charged if possible.
  3. Not sure which tech the new battery will be but if it's lipo best to keep it 50% charged if possible.
  4. Silly question but if a new battery comes with 6 year warranty is the original one covered by a 6 year warranty and is it young enough?
  5. Looking great, well done. I assume you have cables in for roof lights?
  6. I think it would need way more resources to keep things up to date better, especially at the moment. It's probably best to err on the side of caution and send more letters than maybe necessary. Hopefully more people will stay at home but if the traffic outside my house is anything to go by there are still a lot of 'necessary travel'!!
  7. Do you not consider it necessary to have travel insurance yourself to cover your potential losses? What if the companies went bankrupt before your arrival? As someone who was an accommodation provider and still run tourist business I am self employed as many small businesses are. So far we have zero income, the possibility of a mortgage holiday ( interest compounding) and no other help at all. What do the terms and conditions state that you agreed to say? I'm not complaining as we all have to pull together to get through this. I feel sorry for your financial loss but there are bigger things at stake here.
  8. Supermarkets are telling suppliers to reduce their lines. So less number of different sizes or types. I think it was Tesco who said instead of 20 varieties and sizes of pasta they are going down to 6. I just hope they are not doing it to enable them to increase prices by stealth!
  9. I used to regularly get wax blocking ears so I bought one of these Wax Removal Syringe from Amazon. It squirts water at 90 degrees to the ear drum so shouldn't cause any issues. With softened wax it should work great. I do mine about once every 6 months.
  10. If there is no issue in Russia why are they building special hospital for virus? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/world-europe-51945855/coronavirus-temporary-hospital-being-built-in-moscow
  11. You are quite right the wheels wont travel very far at all. I did say it might be me over engineering things. One thing is the load they may have to support could be significantly higher than normal nose weight on coupling up! They may have a large amount of load when people are using motor movers, maybe even up steep slopes, surely the load could be quite high? I would guess manufactures are making them to appropriate standards, so should be OK.
  12. To be honest I'm not sure. Traditionally things with plastic bearings were not as good at those with metal roller bearings. Things may have improved and maybe nylon is fine for the loads they are quoting. It's probably me just over engineering things Let us know how you get on with the new wheel.
  13. No idea if there are any better ones but both you listed seem to have nylon bearings!!! Not sure that is best for reducing rolling resistance.
  14. I think they might have to relax the requirements for highly trained intensive care nurses to run the machines. They will have to train other staff in basic operation of ventilators and have the fully trained nurses having more of a supervisory role. If it's a choice between life or death, at least a ventilator monitored by someone less skilled with skilled backup is better than no ventilator!! Which would you chose? I think we have to realise things have to change for the good of everyone. We all have a part to play, following official advice is the best we have.
