Basic electrical principles, illustrated as fluid

Post by jparthum »

This is a basic tutorial to help with understanding the concept of batteries, battery chargers, electrical current, and the effects of various circuitry on each.
NOTE: These diagrams are intended to 'translate' these concepts to the more familiar concepts of fluid. They are not intended to be viewed as a procedural guide for actual wiring connections.

Yeah, these are definitely invaluable. I have them saved to my iPhone to reference when I'm on the go. It's great for explaining this stuff to other people. Thanks again!

Wow, thanks for the compliments guys! :oops: :D

Chris, I have them saved on my Android too, for the same reason - which was my original reason for creating them. :)
