I have been watching Russ for years and was curious about his latest experiments. Particularly his statement that "the load does not consume the power". He also posted a link to Rick Friedrich's work. I was interested in the battery swap circuit and so, since I had a set of 4 brand new LiFePO4 3.2 volt cells on hand, I decided to do a little test run. I modified a 4 cell batter holder to have two of the cells in series and two in parallel. see diagram.
