OK, another update. All of the pad boxes got modifications over the past 3 days. All now have heavier battery cables, heat sinks on the MOSFETs and all have had the solder connections on the MOSFETs checked and repaired as needed. I also made sure that all of the pads have been updated to firmware v1.0.1. I will be testing the system this afternoon so you are welcome to help if you are available.

Another update.

I'm currently down to 5 pad boxes that have passed today's tests, so far. One of the failing boxes just requires a couple of wires to be swapped. One needs to be further tested to determine the problem. The other self-destructed... That last one might have been avoidable but I can only work on one end of the system at a time and it was toast before I could get to it to shut it off. I'll see what I can get fixed and take it from there.

I guess no one really cares how this stuff is working so I won’t bother you with further updates nor requests for help.

I for one am interested in the progress you are making, but cannot get over to help during the week.
