  • Repairing a dead Tronic Power Cube (KH 3106)

    My Dad gave me the ‘gift’ of a completely dead Tronic Power Cube that was bought at some point from Lidl. It should be a useful portable battery for camping and power outages. It has a 12v Cigarette Lighter output, and 3v, 4.5v, 6v and 9v barrel connector outputs on it’s front. On it’s rear it has a set of 12v Banana plugs. It also has a good deal of surge protection, with both an output fuse on it’s front and an input fuse on it’s rear. It takes a standard 12v 0.5a input barrel connector to charge.

  • Building a homebrew LTE Router Part 1

    Living in the country-side close to a small city (Limerick/Ireland) means that my access to high speed broadband is pretty limited. I do have a ‘mom and pop shop’ fixed wireless provider that does for netflix and spotify, but with erratic pings and at a times highly contended network, it was proving to be unsuitable for work. VOIP, Google Hangouts, Lync screen-sharing were all becoming problematic at peak times. I needed an alternative solution.
