Has HKJ Retired From Testing of Batteries ?

The last time I saw a battery test from HKJ was January 2022. Have also not seen any charger or USB Device tests lately. He made a massive contribution to the hobby.

At the pace he was testing stuff at, I’m sure that there’s some burnout.

That would be a real loss for the community, like when selfbuilt retired

An updated SkyRC MC3000 would bring him out of retirement.

We’ll be waiting for you after the break, Henrik.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.
