    Orion Induction Heater

    There's nothing wrong with the numbers. They are perfectly accurate.

    Orion Induction Heater

    I have LOL @km1og - Not worried about dropping it, making it feel like a $200 device with a solid feel

    Orion Induction Heater

    I see aftermarket -redressing- of the Orion. FutoStash is already working on a skin at least. But I agree, an artisan could really do something special with a case for the Orion innards.

    Orion Induction Heater

    I convert everything IH to watts. Power is getting converted to so many variables you need a solid constant. Watts imparted to the VC works well for a lot of estimations. We've all dropped a digit somewhere. No big deal. Happy to pick it up for ya 😇

    Orion Induction Heater

    Um, @erkanostatic - the 12 watt/hour is more likely accurate. That is 1000mah at 11.1v. You can't cheat physics, sorry. A little math to prove it - 1.1 hours at 5v and 2.3 amps = 1.1 hours at 10.6 watts = 11.66 watt hours of charge. The 2.5 amps/hour reading is at 5V, BTW, not 11.1V. Love...

    This is a picture I did for a Reddit post. This is the trace that sends power to the drive circuit. The magnet wire in the image is part of the switch setup I was working with. I need to clean that up a little. That wasn't the purpose of the build. There are other hints in the images of...

    I had a question posed as to what is soldered to what. The capacitor and the coil are a subassembly; I used 14 gauge solid house wire to extend the legs of the coil and spliced them into the legs of the capacitor. Set aside and prepare the board... This wire is the positive input. There...

    Funny... more 'less' always makes me want 'more' resulting in 'excess'. If that makes sense you got "VAS"

    Irons in the fire and new product intro galore on the portable front. Familiar names and new ones starting with Alpine 2020 which had a rocky debut, then the Apollo Rover got a battery pack and the Orion is a new innovation is carry-able. Some say pocketable but they are just bragging. there...

    See if you can find some stainless steel 8mm or 5/16" ID. Brass still has traces of lead and vape people really hate that shit. I like the Shellac except for the IPA damage. I like that it is easily removable. I finally got some real bee's wax. Still haven't found a universal solution I...

    (Mods, ran into an image limit) Now one other thing... power is added. One could put the 2-pin connector back and use the negative as input, and the positive input as a Fire-switch return line. Positive has to be added to the loop we made or also within the inductor. Lots of options here...

    To continue, we need to cut the 2 inductors in half. Yet, we still need 3 connection, knowing that one pair are a common electrical connection. Please refer back to the diagram to see what we are connecting. That should give you an idea of what HalfPint is all about, and how it got it's name...

    I do not know but the finding of having a bigger OD solves the PMO stainless tip problem. You just made it dirt cheap by using SS tips. The Ti tip will work but the range and/or function won't be there. I'm lovin' it!

    Orion Induction Heater

    Yesterday I noticed the FCC/CE markings on the Orion. That cost someone a pretty penny. Knowing that it is violation of law just to put those on there without filing agency reports, I can tell you A LOT OF MONEY has been dropped on giving you the Orion. It will take hundreds of Orion sales to...

    @Lynch - since Mr C is out and about; The glass thickness is a preference of how tight you want the cap in the IH. I like a roomy fit so it doesn't 'stick' if slightly angled. Then again, the medium thickness glass will be more robust than the thin wall glass. From a heating perspective...

    I just want the rest of my order. I assume that too is delayed.

    Sorry I missed your posts @danielj - Omni condensers are bigger and they seat in the Ti tip. Ti tips have a special bore to close off the Omni at 5mm. Withdrawing the condenser slowly opens the bleed area because the tubes are still engaged with a restricted clearance. This is the reason the...

    24th in the order the order was received. Mine will be late therefore. It was an unfortunate shipping delay in the carrying cases. Everyone was suppose to release as once and DV was caught short.

    Box Troll Alright; we're gonna fuck with the Box Troll above. We will be doing a comprehensive build of one version of HalfPint, this being the flat version with components on the opposite side. I have made this decision based on several factors in no particular order; 1) The light will be...

    I can't leave this post hanging at intermission. We'll wait, I can - intermission! I've decided to do a HalfPint Conversion on this circuit. Parameters - small components on top and inductor and capacitor underneath. Coil on top. We're going to try a compliant passive contact shunt using...
