  • Use only PROTECTED 18650 batteries that are matched (at the same charge level)
    • There is no BMS built into the RAK kit, only a charging circuit, so it will drain non-protected cells to zero if left to run.

      • Protected batteries will prevent themselves from being drained to zero

  • All Yeti Wurks Base Stations will have the same secondary encrypted channel, if you want a more private channel please add another
  • If you change the default Primary Channel or rename it you will lose meshing capability with ALL other devices not setup with the exact same primary as you
  • The 4 rear mounting holes will work with M5x10mm self taping screws (screw length may vary depending on what you are mounting)
