  1. Thanks for another informative blog. Where else could I get that type of information written in such a perfect way? I’ve a project that I’m just now working on, and I’ve been on the look out for such information.

  2. The battery is wrapped in plastic.. I started tearing it off the thought maybe I shouldn’t. I am charging and lights are on so should I still take cover off battery? Thanks… hope this is not a stupid question!!
