    El-Cheapo UPS Battery replacement: Can I use Lithium (LiPo)?

    I've got one of these: The battery doesn't last more than 30min after 1yr of running ONT + WiFi Router (that's the only load it has). To replace that, I can buy another SLA battery, but couldn't I just drop in one of these...

    Wellpoint/Spike pump timing

    How long can you run your pump before the flow slows/stops? I get around 10min of flow, then it slows and sputters but doesn't stop completely. I'm wondering if I should put a timer on the pump to let the ground water 'reservoir' refill before it's pumped out again. Should be more efficient...

    HDR vs SDR vs 4k torrents

    Which of these should I be downloading for a Hisense 4k HDR TV? Is it obviously HDR? If so, is Win10 + VLC the best player for those files? What's the difference between them so I can see if I am even able to tell the difference? I have a Mi Box S too, though I prefer the PC for movies (can...

    Budget SSD for PC upgrade

    I'm sure many of you get the 'how can I speed up my PC question' from friends/family. The easy answer, is to add an SSD. So, for an intermediate user, is 120GB enough? I'd say so, especially if the old drive is relocated to the DVD bay or an external enclosure. SATA is fine for most of...

    Best ADSL Upload Speed

    I'm looking for the cheapest 1MB upload speed, if that's still the max for ADSL? More than that would be great too, if still ADSL. Can't seem to see UL mentioned anywhere on Telkom site or any of the bandwidth provider sites :( AFAIK, 4MB is .5MB up and 10MB is 1MB up. There are 6MB and 8MB...

    Audio: Headphones & Onboard sound vs Sound Card

    I'd like to upgrade my audio experience. Looking at less than R1k, all in. When using on board sound (all much of a muchness?) what's the limit for headphones? IE, when do the phones exceed the capabilities of the source? Using a laptop, I'd add something like this: Asus Xonar U3 USB...

    Discount Prepaid Airtime

    I've just moved back to Prepaid (CellC). Been on contract with MTN for ~10yrs. Before that I used to buy airtime at Pep, which was cheapest. I see they're still cheaper, but discounts aren't what they were: CellC: R10 = R9.70 R35 = R33.99 MTN: R15 = R14.49 R30 = R28.99 etc. (not...
