Recommended Posts

Hello whats the average lifespan of a fly wired battery and the average lifespan of a battery soldered on to a board ?

they both do damage! one does the board in, and the other flywired works the rot up the cables until it reaches the board!

Is there a third option?

yep several other options there was, but none as cheap as a £5 varta battery which still wins every time still!

yes put a button battery on a fly lead

depends on the tech, that will be flat in a couple of days on a maygay M1a board!

So what,would you say is the best option ? The worst option anyone would say would be a battery soldered on to a board

So what would you say is the average lifespan of a fly wired battery ? Someone told me about 10 years ? When the rot travels up the wire is it noticeable ? Is there anything to look for ?

for those of you that don;t know there was a option I came up with a few years back, ram that held there content with no power!

trouble was it was more expensive than a battery therefore no one wanted it! lifetime of stored data with no power 100 YEARS

the coincell lasts anything from afew hours to some acouple of months depending on the board , this ram less battery was  a great idea but i thought you didn't have anymore ?

what about a rechargable coincell  would that work?

Just replace the batteries once a year or completely everything meaning the wires aswell ?

Going back to the fly wired battery and a green vartra battery do they really last up to 10 years fly wired ? Can someone show me a picture of battery rot traveling up the wire , I spoke to an electrician about this and he said that can't happen ??

It can and does but i don't have any pictures.

I guess the electrician isn't a micro electronics specialist as he is wrong?

Boffins once said that Space Travel can't happen.... Don't always listen to what the so called experts say.

I wasn't judging anyone or saying anyone was wrong just saying what he said , you guys on here know what your talking about because you have experienced it , if anyone has any pictures to post here that will be great , so the wire will let you know when to change it ? Do they last up to 10 years ?

With the rot traveling up the wire is it noticeable so you know when to change the battery and wires? If so the board wont ever get damaged ??

Would the rot really travel up a wire? Surely something like that would take years and years to happen?

Yes, it travels up the copper cores of a wire, destroying the core as it goes.

It will then start on the board where the wires join to it.

It does take a long while but it does happen.
