Re: Tips for Shy People at Burning Man

From my own first burn last year, I seemed to notice very few naked doods waltzing around. None of the guys in my camp got naked (except to shower) but all of the girls did, and I saw plenty of topless women around the city as well. I really don't think he needs to get naked to have the time of his ...

Re: Chest freezer?

We also brought a full sized chest freezer, left it in the Penske truck and just had to hooked up to the generator so whenever the generator was running it was on, probably about 12 hours a day. We also had blankets over it to help insulate it and everything stayed perfectly frozen the whole time, n...

Re: Battery Question for Lighting Costume

Lots of good info in this thread, thanks everyone.

However, AA's (as noted in this thread) are good f...

Re: Battery Question for Lighting Costume

Remember that large quantities of LEDs can provide a striking effect even when they're running at 20% or even 10% of their maximum brightness. I suppose you can't exactly do that with your pre-built controller, but it's something to think about. I put 114 RGB LEDs pixels on a hat, and if I ran it a...

Re: Battery Question for Lighting Costume

It's impossible for a 12AH battery to run a 6A strip at full brightness for 6 hours. If, on average, only one color was on at a time or there was fading or blinking involved, then it would be possible. Yes I should have been more specific, I had it on color fading mode. After all, full brightness o...

Thanks for the tips guys. I looked into those shorai 12 lifepo4 batteries, and yes they are lightweight and have crazy aH ratings but they are also expensive! They seem to run about 5 times the cost of a similar SLA battery, which is more than I want to spend on a battery that could very easily end ...

Last year was my first year at Burning Man and it really opened me up. My advice is just to let your guard down and accept the fact that you're not longer on planet Earth but on planet Burning Man where everyone loves you and wants to talk with you and be your friend. It sounds corny but that was my...

Re: Battery Question for Lighting Costume

A "mess" of LEDs can mean different things. How many amps/voltage etc. do you need for it? You could use RC NiMH battery packs, or some LiPo battery packs, or those SLAs mentioned above. I'd avoid alkaline batteries if you have somewhat high current draw, as their lifetime is shorted dram...

Re: About Small Blinky Lights

Small blinky lights are handy to have to give to darkwads, they're cheap and last a long time. I prefer slow pulsing and color changing and fading lights but blinky lights don't bother me.

Probably pick up a SLA battery off of ebay. I got a 12ah 12v SLA battery from ebay.com for 25 bucks free shipping, it weighs maybe 7 or 8 lbs but it's relatively small, could put it on a utility belt if needed. I also got a 5ah SLA battery that is half the size and weighs maybe 3 or 4 lbs that could...

Playa Info also surely does. Only Placement's version can be any better (because it's got any last-minute changes on it)....
