    Default Would anyone be interested in battery training?

    Hi Guys,

    I have been watching all the battery threads with great interest. It seems there is still a lot of misconceptions out there about charging/ discharging etc.

    I may be able to organise a course at an established battery company on the east rand for those interested in understanding battery technology, charging, discharging, lifetime and so on.

    It would be conducted over the course of one to two working days and is usually followed by an open book test whereafter you will receive a certificate of successful completion.

    If enough people are interested I will set the wheels in motion and get pricing per person. This will include a textbook for future reference, snacks and drinks and a tour of the facility.

    Some more motivation:

    I attended this course about ten years ago and the knowledge you gain is incredible.

    Eskom regularly send people to the course as it is so comprehensive.

    They cover the following:

    All the different battery technologies and the application thereof.

    Charging efficiency.

    Charging characteristics.

    Different charging technologies and the effects on batteries.

    The effect of temperature on lifetime of a battery.

    Commissioning of dry cells.

    Troubleshooting and diagnostics on batteries.

    and much more.

    I will need to get at least 20 interested people to make it viable in terms of cost to attendees. I will not be making a cent out of it myself.

    This course will be of immense value to people who want to understand batteries as well as those business owners who sell batteries and related products.
