I’m bored on this cloudy cold day so I thought I would run the new BF Heater Module to see how it does.
This was not in the scope , but don’t think that will make a lot of difference.
First test was in the house and second in my garage at more realistic temps.
I Used a digital laser thermometer for the test and got temps from the same spot for all the readings.
Easy installation with 2 screws that are supplied
Same length 3” adds .5” to width making it 2.5” and adds 1.5” to depth
does add some weight , it’s sturdy.
On / off switch and LED indicator light , charging ports and a battery
by pass to run from an external battery.
First test the room was 70 as was the heater on the BF.
After 5 min the temp was 84 degrees
10 min 90
15 min 92
20 min 94
25 min 96
30 min 97
Second test garage temp was 44 as was the heater on the BF.
After 5 min temp was 60 degrees
10 min 66
15 min 72
20 min 74
25 min 77
30 min 78
40 min 82
50 min 84
60 min 83
After a total of 90 min the battery LED has started blinking indicating less than 10% battery life left.
This model has a battery by pass cable to run off an external battery for unlimited run time.
I’ll be happy with the run time on the battery as when it’s cold less than 90 min will be plenty of observing time for me if something is happening
Also have a new DS for my scope to test out when the sun shines , more on that another time.
