    Why is my new alarm battery not working?

    Update: Takealot delivered my replacement battery this morning. Exact same battery (Ritar). This time, no issues at all. Works just fine. Thanks to all who gave input. I would really like to do away with all lead acid batteries in my house. But those Blue Nova batteries are quite expensive. It...

    Why is my new alarm battery not working?

    I recently dealt with an Paradox alarm installer in CPT. He did an unrelated installation and I asked for a 9Ah battery to be installed, which he happily did. System works just fine.

    Why is my new alarm battery not working?

    I noticed the connector size difference. I just bent the connector slightly and it fits pretty well. Took two minutes.

    Why is my new alarm battery not working?

    I don't have a multimeter handy, unfortunately, so no. But since the system is perfectly happy once I connect the old battery, I assume the issue must be with the new battery. Currently I'm still waiting for takealot to confirm receipt of the return item and issue a replaement.

    Why is my new alarm battery not working?

    This is helpful, thanks. I'll exchange it in this case. This is the first I'm hearing of a viable alternative to lead acid batteries for these types of applications. It's a little expensive but worth considering, yes.

    Why is my new alarm battery not working?

    I most definitely will, but should I ask for a refund to buy a different brand or should I ask for an exchange?

    Why is my new alarm battery not working?

    Hi all This one should hopefully be easy to solve. Loadshedding killed my Paradox MG5050 alarm battery (Power Kingdom; 7ah) in less than two years. It needed to be replaced as it's runtime decreased to 4.5 hours. I ordered this 9ah battery from Takealot. It has the same physical footprint as...

    Where to buy Ultralan Micro UPS (60w or higher)

    Hi kernel Thanks for taking the time to write a decent answer. Much appreciated. Good to hear these units will keep getting imported. I guess they're popular for a reason. In the meantime I'll have to keep looking for an available unit - I don't want winter loadshedding to ruin my (work)day again.

    Where to buy Ultralan Micro UPS (60w or higher)

    It's good to know I'm not the first one to battle with finding a place to buy this unit (UltraLan Micro UPS 60W). I saw it on Takealot earlier this week, but still needed to make up my mind. It has been removed in the meantime. It's out of stock over at Uniterm Direct and a bunch of other...

    This is a coincidence, but I just had the perfect opportunity to test the overheating theory. I drove R1500km this past weekend with Google Maps navigation running all the way. Spotify was also playing music via Bluetooth in the background at times. My phone was standing more or less upright in...

    Oneplus 7T and 7T Pro

    No issues with overheating on my side. In fact, I've never noticed heat coming of the phone before. Can you say more about the circumstances under which this happened? Was it charging? Running a benchmark, playing a game, sitting in the sun? And when it overheated, which error message did you see?

    Thanks for confirming. Surprising, since my OP6 reports 8GB on this exact screen.

    Oneplus 7T and 7T Pro

    I received mine this morning. Pretty happy with it so far. It's a nice upgrade coming from the OnePlus 6. Only question: under developer options > Memory, do you also see 7.8GB?

    Oneplus 7T and 7T Pro

    Agreed. Just for clarity, the 7 Pro also has the same laser focus sensor, but it is integrated into the camera sensor array. For some weird reason, they decided to move this sensor to the left of the camera sensor array on the 7T Pro.

    Oneplus 7T and 7T Pro

    They only called my once, to confirm my identity and delivery address. I got the SMS about the same time. I have an existing contract with Vodacom, so they process is simplified compared to new clients. They don't require any documentation if you're an existing client.

    Oneplus 7T and 7T Pro

    Vodacom called me just now. Even though I placed the order only yesterday, they processed my application and I can expect delivery next week. No mention of any issues with stock.

    Oneplus 7T and 7T Pro

    It is still listed on their website though. Not sure at which point the stock notification triggers. I placed my order at 13:44 this afternoon. Received an email: "We've received your contract application! We'll let you know as soon as we have completed a credit check. Your application will be...

    Big data deals in South Africa

    I don't think that sentence should be interpreted to imply that RAIN and Telkom are not considered national networks. It implies that a product (from any network) that is intended to be used while stationary (fixed location) is excluded from this comparison. I appreciate this, because this is a...

    Great, in that case I can only hope that the situation in my area will improve.
