Could you please provide a LINK (URL) to the thread you reference, Jim?

At least, identify a FORUM, and a TOPIC, so the thread can be found?

To capture and transmit a link, go to the thread in question; HIGHLIGHT the address at the top of your screen on the address bar; COPY the address; then . . . post it (i.e., PASTE) on this forum, so we can see what you're talking about.

(Not that anyone DOUBTS your account of discussion on .net.)

Sorry - you got there before I did. I have been trying to tell folks this for years and they looked at me as if I was nuts! Couldn't convince them that a charger did NOT put electrons INTO a battery. Looked up battery charging on GOOGLE today and it tried to convince me that a charger forced electrons backwards thru battery....WRONG! They won't GO backwards....

Thanks for how to make link - wrote notes, maybe I'll remember.

Well, that just shows how stupid they are. Everyone knows that a charger is putting magic smoke back into the battery. All electrical stuff runs on magic smoke and when the battery runs out of it, or you let the smoke out from somewhere, nothing will work until you fix the place where the smoke got out or you put more smoke back into the battery.

There are a few good people over there, but the rest of them - sheesh - they have no technical expertise.

I've heard that magic smoke is good stuff. Anyone know where I can get some?

New batteries come full of the stuff. My F-250 uses the largest battery commonly made for passenger vehicles. It's got enough magic smoke to do Woodstock all over again.

Not so much of a poo-poo, it's just that:

1. No one except rocket scientists found it very interesting;
2. As long as the bike is rideable, we are out riding not discussing what would potentially happen to a battery if Saturn's rings tilted this way or that;
3. Like another guy posted: I'll compare this to an oil, tire or battery thread. I try not to participate in those either.

I hope that isn't more poo-poo, but them's the facts, Jack.

Er, Jim...

(Plus it's boring stuff.)
