Re: Portable battery Charger for inReach SE...
Accidentally, I forgot to turn off the SE after its last use. Its battery went all the way down to 0% over a couple of weeks of neglect. This was an opportunity to see what the Miller ML102 with a...

Re: Explorer Rationale
You're definitely right about touch screens in adverse conditions. I would add to your list extreme cold. Though I work well below zero, they don't, I find.

Re: SE For Sale
"I did remove the belt clip, and although it can be clicked back into place, I heard here that once it's removed, it's never quite as secure again (although carrying it on a belt or st...

Re: protected 18650 size...
