    In my last thread, Nomad, 2nd said I need to make it a little longer, so here I go. For April 2017 I decided to focus on rechargeable USB devices. Rather than going with a large 12 volt panel, to a charge controller, and then to a battery, I decided to go dabble in a solar panel that has USB...

    I finally bought a solar panel. In all honest, I do not know why I waited so long for. It is a Nekteck 20 watt solar panel. Before I bought the panel I asked myself, what purpose will the panel serve? I decided to go with a foldable solar panel with USB outlets for recharging flashlights, AA...

    solar power inverter Please bear with me, I'm not very learned in these kind of things, but would like to become more educated. My understanding with this Power Inverter: I would have my Solar Panels outside, preferably on the roof, the wires from the panels would run to this inverter (which...

    An interesting concept or design and after looking at it and thinking on it, this would actually be a quite useable kit or the box used for the kit. Anyone here seen this and what's your take, I think the idea is ideal especially being able to recharge a AA battery and also having a small light...

    So Wednesday I was surfing the web to try and source a solar panel setup to mount to the roof of my motorhome to keep my 5 deep cycle batteries in the motorhome fully charged and after realizing that I didn't really want the old typical Harbor Freight 45W panels that have so many cons against...

    I was at my local Costco (Torrance, Ca) and came across these Goal Zero Nomad 7M Sherpa Portable Solar Power units... comes with a bunch of accessories- they are only $99 bucks. I bought one. Curious, I looked these up on Costco's website and they show $139.00. Couldn't find them cheaper on...

    Well ... I went to Harbor Freight today. I got a real life personal "hands-on" for portions of their 45Watt solar kit. For the money, you are NOT even close to getting to the energy of a select purpose built system. For this reason alone I would never ... keyboard battery failing ...

    Folks, I know this product has been discussed ad nauseum with some folks finding value in it and others not. Just wanted to let you know that I received a coupon for it for $159.99 good through June 1. They also have a 20% off any one item but I bet they won't let me combine the coupons. :(...

    I have a 200 watt solar panel with battery bank that is not charging. I am not too mechanical, but I bought this as a emergency unit. Basically, just hook up the leads and it should work. Being that it is a portable unit, I can move it around. as well as the 100 pound battery bank with 2,500...

But im a little overwhelmed on where to start, plus many things arent available here in greece like the states, but thats a whole different story... I want to start with something simple, like...

    Even though I live in WY, I am going to try to build a solar panel to go on the top of my truck camper-top to keep a couple batteries charged (mostly for using a 12v electric blanket). I bought about 100 solar cells on ebay (see attachment). And this is a site where a guy describes how to wire...

    anyone tried to set up a solar panel on their BOV? I have an old land rover that was FFR (fitted for radio) from British MOD and is a 24 volt vehicle. I have a ham radio and a 24-12 converter currently. I'd like to set up a solar panel that is initially protected in a faraday cage in the...

    I picked up a little 15 watt solar panel yesterday, and was wondering how it would hold up to a jolt from an EMP. I would think for sure that it should be stored with the wire leads disconnected or rolled up tight so they would not catch the full wave lenth. What are your thoughts?
