Jalcide Posted November 23, 2015 Author Report Share Posted November 23, 2015 I switched the line that normally shows voltage, to current (amps) and feel it's a bit more informative as to what's going on under the hood; the absolute draw from the battery.With wattage and temperature being shown, is there really any value in seeing the volts being pushed, or is it just a holdover from pre-wattage regulation days?My thinking here is that as the voltage drops with battery depletion, the amps need to increase to maintain the same wattage / temperature (physics), so amps seem more non-intuitive than voltage, as voltage is linear with battery level. Amps are more of a real-time calculation that's hard to imagine in one's head.Since the amps are less intuitive, across battery drain, it might be better to show that on the display.For battery safety monitoring, as well.Thoughts?
