EARTH'S MAGNETIC FIELD IS RINGING LIKE A BELL: Today, a high speed solar wind stream is passing just south of Earth, making grazing contact with our planet's magnetic field. This is causing something unusual to happen. Around the poles, Earth's magnetic field has been ringing like a bell. Rob Stammes recorded the phenomenon from his magnetic observatory in Lofoton, Norway.
"Ths morning, the magnetic field around our observatory (as measured by ground currents) was swinging back an forth with a 100 second period," says Stammes. "This very stable oscillation went on for more than an hour."
This is quite different from what normally happens when a solar wind stream hits Earth's magnetic field. Here is an example of Stammes' recordings during a regular geomagnetic storm. Compared to the cacophany of a normal storm, this morning's event was a sweet pure tone.
Researchers call these pure ultra-low frequency oscillations "pulsations continuous" (Pc). Pc waves have an energizing influence on particles in Earth's inner magnetosphere because they resonate with the natural motion of particles around the geomagnetic field. This, in turn, can supercharge the aurora borealis.
Some of the energy injected by Pc waves is being observed right now in Sweden. "The auroras are going crazy!" reports Chad Blakley of Lights over Lapland, who roared out on his snowmobile to photograph the display:
"The lights were so impressive that I forgot that I was only wearing jeans before heading out! It may have been -25 degrees outside but it was worth 15 minutes in the cold to see a display that I will never forget," says Blakley.
The effect of this solar wind stream may be likened to a person blowing across the top of a soda bottle, the glancing breath producing a nearly monochromatic waveform. "This is quite rare," says Stammes. "Pulsating continuous signals like these are visible only 2 or 3 times a year."
Stay tuned for more "ringing auroras" in the hours ahead.
Well, a typical Li-ion 18650 theses days delivers 3000 mAh at a nominal 3.7V. That's 6.7 watt-hours.Sure why not....
Maybe for recharging one of these to put in that smoker.

This super-capacitor, in the same size, that costs 2-1/2 times as much, has a capacity of 100F at 2.7V. That's 364 Joules, or just about 0.1 watt-hours
Good luck running a car (or even a vape) on those.
No you don't. There are no Li-ion 18650 cell in the world that comes anywhere close being able to deliver even half of 9800 mAh. Now you may have some where the label claims that, but those labels lie. Pro-tip: Do not buy 18650s on fleaBay.Yes indeed, I have one's that are 9800 mAh for flashlights & I love them.

China Offshore Trading Company
The abbreviation given here is incorrect. COSTCO does NOT stand for "Chinesse (sic) Offshore Shipping Transportation Company," "China Offshore Trading Company," or any other similar name. It is American owned and operated.
3600 mAh is about the most you can get in an 18650 form-factor.I did buy them on fleabay and they do indeed say they are rated this way and do last longer than the 5800, however, than again, you maybe right and the 5800 ones could be less than they are stated too.
I doubt it.What do you think Uwe maybe the FTC will police it or some AG and I will get a check someday like lights of America etc. & for eBay permitting an impossible product to be sold and misstated, hmmm kind of like a VCDS clone & since eBay are a landlord and virtual stores are tenants, clearly making businesses responsible for sales tax in some states & making them no longer an auction and indeed a silent business partner, further opening them up to shared liability of intellectual property violations?

Here's some honest vendors for you:
16555/P0171/000369 - Fuel Trim; Bank 1: System Too Lean
- Mass Air Flow Sensor (G70) defective
- Intake System Leak(s)
- Check Mass Air Flow Sensor (G70)
- Check Fuel Pressure Regulation
- Check Fuel Pump
- Check Injectors
- Check Intake System for Leaks
- Check Exhaust System for Leaks

- Check Vacuum Pipes for Leaks
I doubt it.
I hold an 18650 battery up to my face with great regularity every day, so I've done my research.TY...... "I didn't know" ( See that ! ?) , nor did I pay attention to 18650 battery ability or what was really available & because A. No time B. I trusted someone and yet again was served!
