Recently, my grandmothers lift chair stopped working (well the charger for it) and we need to replace it.
Did some googling, and it's a 24v 2 amp charger.
>commonly used in; On-board and Off-board applications, specially designed for electric scooter, power wheel-chairs and patient lifts among others.
I don't know what happened to the unit, but the "error" light comes on when I hit the power switch. so im sure it's something internal that can be fixed.
a new charger (OEM-2402) is $136 shipped.
Is there a cheaper, power wheels charger I can get?

Hi all. I'm wondering about making incense at home, from myrrh, cedar, sandalwood, whatnot. My library has two relevant books both of which think my efforts will be improved if I learn about chakras, faeries, worthless bullshit like that. Can anybody suggest a source for a rational person? Many thanks.
Pic would be related if I could imagine a related pic.

I'm thinking about making a still, but setting aside the building of this still fore some further date, due to the complete lack of money.
I have an electric stove, and I was thinking about getting thermometer that can be placed inside the pan to keep the temperature at a steady 80C (or 176F for our SI-challenged friends).
My question is that if I have a pan with 23 litres of mash in it, how much will the temperature vary?
Does an electronic stove with six different settings keep at a steady temperature or do I have to get an alternative heat source?
Also I hope that this doesn't go in the category about discussing drugs or drug paraphernalia, because hey, "its just alcohol."

I'm REALLY confused and I need to ask you... WHAT THE HELL do I need to a flash a LiteOn 93450c?
I mean, the whole package, not just "the probe and ck3 mini" only to find out later I need some sort of special SATA card.
I don't have anything at all. So I need to know what do I need to buy. I've searched everywhere but most guys already have something or the info is simply incomplete.
I don't have much money, but I need something to extract the key, I need something to power that key extractor and the drive, I need something to connect the drive to my PC and I need those to be cheap. And that's pretty much everything, I guess.
Oh and I can't really buy a USB360PRO since it costs a fucking fortune. It's to play offline and I really need it under 30€.
Also, there are only a very few shops that sell that kind of stuff in Europe, so if you have links to those things, that would be GREAT.
Please, /diy/ I really need help on this one

I'm a senior in a science and math High school, and for the whole year we are working on a project to invent or improve upon an item not previously patented, that we could market or patent ourselves need be. I am wanting to do something with electronics, Mostly hardware if possible but I am aware of how to use C based languages from having been in school robotics.
My issue is, after browsing instructables, hackaday and miscellaneous sites in the stickied thread on the front page i have not yet found something inspiring to create.
So my question to you all, is what are some items that are relatively exotic, that if a market had been formed for these items you would purchase them, or make them yourself? (It is /diy/ after all).
Examples of other peoples projects are an inductive mouse, A table that when the cup is placed on it the table injects a drink into the cup, someone last year made improvements on a cigarette filter, one person made a quadrocopter from scratch, one student created an xbox 360 into a laptop and fashioned a carrying case into a portable power source that still held the xbox with a 4 hour battery life and safely shut down when power began to run low, and another person built an electric guitar with a built in speaker.

What kind of clock jitter values can I expect from a typical computer RTC?

Hi /diy/! I'm making an RTC board for my RTC-less router. Right now, I'm researching the oscillator circuit and I'm hoping you can give me some information here or at least share some experience.
What I have right now is a DS1307+ (yeah, I know it's old, but it's the best I can get that works with I^2C) on a breadboard (yes, I know that they are a source of all evil and wrong things, especially when oscillators are concerned, but the layout isn't ready yet) and the frequency counter on my scope tells me (via DS1307's square wave out pin) that the oscillator's frequency is 32768 Hz, as I'd expect.
What concerns me is the falling edge of the square wave output. There's some jitter on it and the area covered by the falling edge is around 500 ns wide.
I don't need some super precise time keeping, but I'd like to get is as precise as reasonably possible. So should I be concerned by this or is this good enough for a computer RTC?
