    Re: Warning - Hyena inside Lower Sabie camp

    Thanks guys for all the posts. I am sure a lot of us will be more awake in Kruger.

    How about a short few points on how to behave/do when confronted by these wild animals roaming the camps.

    Re: Balancing 2x Lithiumís in series

    This seems to work fine.....

    Re: Lithium vs Lead Acid

    The 1st time I see some lithium must not be charged for longer than 8 hours.
