Re: USB connectors

Make sure you have a good and proven working USB data cable and not only for POWER delivery. Yes those cables exist and put the most avid user sometimes in a difficult spot and in hindsight caught off-guard. I had this twice with a borrowed cable in the office here. They need to be good otherwise no...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.11 / DM42-3.11

Please contact Michael via email or PM him. My solution was not for the faint at heart.

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.11 / DM42-3.11

Update: applied "the solution" from Michael. Using the calculator at random moments for a brief period. Battery is being used as such and we'll see where it ends the coming month. It's a vast improvement over the previous situation although I'm a little skeptical still. Let's see in a month from now.

Re: Non of graphing works outside normal HP zone

Nope... did not try much anymore but I guess that I've not got the full libraries or programs in. I do use the beginning part of Mandelbrot to set the right graphing option. Then I can draw this nice Sine 3D picture

Re: Non of graphing works outside normal HP zone

Fixed is by using indeed the first part of the mandelbrot and now have the right settings and programs to plot the 3D sinewave thingy. Mandelbrot still does not work for me... :-| :(

Non of graphing works outside normal HP zone

Dear all, Having, so far, resolved my battery usage issue I'm on to some more fiddling. Having downloaded Mandelbrot and Gbench I'm finding that none of them work whereas the original DICE program does work albeit using only the top part of the screen. Tried two different time stamped mandelbrot raw...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.11 / DM42-3.11

Hi all, I did the PM to Michael and we agreed to apply 'the cure' not for the faint at heart persé but I committed to do it. New battery since 24 hours and still very fine at 3.11V, no usage though just on/off and then again on/off and again after 20 or so hours.

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.11 / DM42-3.11

Okay and that is good advice. Who more has experience with battery life? I mean un-, and re-screwing in a new battery every 2-3 months is not ideal to say the least. Also not mechanically. btw... now down to 2.64V doing nothing but adding up some numbers. Waited 2 minutes and dropped to 2.63V and th...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.11 / DM42-3.11

Down to 2.79V now per October 23rd. Did and do not use. Just switching on, checking the voltage in the top bar and switching off.
