SMS Backup+ – Apps on Google Play

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/03/04

Simple but cool app: [Archive.isSMS Backup+ – Apps on Google Play:

Automatically backup your SMS, MMS and call history with a separate label in Gmail and Google Calendar.

Later you can restore the saved data (except MMS) back to the phone, especially useful when switching to a new device.

IMAP access needs to be manually enabled in Gmail, see the website and FAQ for more information. You can of course use your own IMAP server for backups, giving you full control over your data.

SMS Backup+ is a free open-source project which has been in active development since the early days of Android, completely ad and tracking-free, supported through voluntary donations.

Still an interesting video, though I wish James Coplien would have a less shouting voice: that would be much easier on the ears.

18650 Battery shield V3(RaspberryPi&Arduino) from lspoplove on Tindie

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/03/04

As you know Tesla has thousands of 18650 batteries. The 18650 battery is a strong existence. So we made this 18650 battery shield for maker.


  • Battery protection(Over charge or Over discharge)
  • Micro USB port Input
  • Type-A USB Output
  • 0.5A current charging
  • 1 switch control USB output
  • 5~8V Input Voltage
  • 3V & 1A Output
  • 5V & 2A Output
  • LED indicate(Green means full,Red means charging)
  • 3V output port x3
  • 5V output port x3

Charging can only be done at 0.5A, so using it as a sort of UPS seems not possible, but an interesting device nonetheless.

The other products referenced from the same page are interesting too and will undoubtedly bring me some new ideas for some projects.
