Compact 30 Watt Amplifier with Bluetooth Receiver

Posted by Greg on Oct 17, 2014
In the ecommerce office we have been using an older bluetooth interface hooked up to some cheap powered speakers to play music while we work. A few weeks ago we were asked to try out the new MCM Custom Audio Amplifier with Bluetooth Receiver and put it through its paces. So, we swapped out both the unreliable bluetooth receiver we had been using along with the cheap speakers for the 30 Watt Amplifier with bluetooth plus a much better set of bookcase speakers.

MCM Electronics Tent Sale / Showroom Grand Opening Recap!

The weather couldn't have been better for our three day tent sale / showroom grand opening on September 25-27th! We'd like to thank the hundreds of people who made it to look at all the deals in the tent and to look at the showroom along with the 3D printer demos & episodes of the Ben Heck Show on the TV monitors. 

Our tent was packed with hundreds of scratch & dent items which were immensely popular. Including this wall of speakers that didn't last long at all due to many being up to 80% off their original price.

MCM Electronics Pro Elec Battery Test - Results

Posted by John on Jul 17, 2014

Per the graph above, we learned that while the Pro Elec battery had a lower initial voltage, it lasted longer. Great. That's simple. But there's more to it.

Because batteries are used in millions of different applications, there will be instances where having a higher initial power output will be better. We'll try to qualify some of these instances below.

MCM Electronics Pro Elec Battery Test - Setup and How To

Posted by John on Jul 16, 2014

Pro Elec Battery Test

Recently, we started carrying our own line of Pro-Elec batteries, and around the office we were wondering how they really stack up against the major brands.

We had the discharge rates and expected run-times from the data-sheets, and most major brands do publish power-curves, but those didn't really give a good head to head comparison. So I grabbed an Arduino, Data-Logger Shield, and a few packs of AA size batteries from stock and got to work.
