    Building Battery Pack with AA batteries

    Eneloops are now on my shopping list. Any idea how these are put together? what other parts/connections would I need? I would imagine the set up would be similar to something like this: If so, what kind of connector would I need? Are you guys able to tell from the pictures from the original...

    Building Battery Pack with AA batteries

    Skillz, thanks for suggesting the batteries. Unfortunately I don't have the current pack anymore, can you explain what kind of internals I would need? What materials and if there is a DIY guide somewhere I may follow?? Thanks.

    Building Battery Pack with AA batteries

    Hi [H], I current own a rebranded TDK A360 wireless speaker. The battery died out awhile back and I have been searching for a replacement. I found one off ebay, exactly pictured in the description (green), not the main photo (in blue). But if possible, I'd prefer to avoid buying refurbished...

    [help] Best way to "cast" device to TV

    hmm, sounds like I'll go with chromecast/fire stick. I'll do research and pick between those 2. I'm a bit confused about Miracast. Do I need a 'miracast compatible' device like the Surface Pro 4 (win 10) along with a 'miracast compatible' TV ( HDMI dongle )?

    [help] Best way to "cast" device to TV

    Ideally, I'd have an SP4 to control and play videos/movies. And this "solution" would work for both my desktop in another room, and the SP4. Walking to another room to start a movie or stream wouldn't be an issue for me though..

    interesting, did not know the chromecast can do that. Would you recommend I wait for the chromecast 2? Any other suggestions?

    [help] Best way to "cast" device to TV

    This thread is about mirroring, extending, and casting your screen to a TV. I think this falls under Computers & Gadgets, but if not, mods please move to the correct sub forum.. Hardware-wise, I have a old custom PC, hooked up with ethernet. Old laptop, planning on upgrading to Microsoft's SP4...

    dual monitor puts stress on CPU

    @d50man, LOL you'd be surprised how quiet it actually is. At 100% on full load it never passes 60C @mikeblas ...:(

    dual monitor puts stress on CPU

    @Araxie, interesting suggestion! Turns out chrome already had the 'enable hardware acceleration' already on. I turned it off, reset, and got it back on. (a little IT trick :D), but no improvements. I played 1080p and 1440p videos on both my monitors, tested it out on chrome and FF. Turns out...

    dual monitor puts stress on CPU

    Sorry guys, I haven't been able to respond as quickly. But, I've been viewing these videos on youtube. One will be youtube, and the other may be from another embedded streaming player, or a quick gif, and such. This is running on the latest chrome browser, I'm on a different computer right now...

    dual monitor puts stress on CPU

    I have a fairly relevant GPU, nVidia 750ti My CPU is pretty old, a Q6600@2.4GHz. But I was still surprised when I was running 2 monitors with 2 videos and it was lagging. For example I was watching a 2k video on one, and some gifs on another, and it would lag immensely, CPU is definitely...
