The experimental project continues

The experimental project continues So, where I am up to. I have doubled the battery storage to 14ah to test what I want to do. I have been running a AA battery charger on USB to provide some demand for a week (and charge the AA’s for free, sort of). Just picked up a 300w inverter yesterday to run some garden lights. Disappointed the fan in this runs all the time, would prefer this to be temperature controlled, never mind. I have also got a 5v supply to a Raspberry…

Solar UV Light Project (Help?)

Solar UV Light Project (Help?) Hi All! ​ I’m hoping I could get some help from this group. I’m an entomologist and a big part of what I do is collect insects. One of the most effective ways to do this is with a UV light setup at night. This often involves bringing a generator out into the field, or at least a car battery. I decided it would be a fun/useful project to develop a passive collecting technique following plans similar to a solar garden light (turns on at…

LFA: DIY Solar roof in stages Hi all. I’m looking for advice/recommendations for doing solar-grid-tie-in as a DIY project on my house, but in stages. All of these “solar companies” want you to plop down $15K+ at once. I’d rather do it piece at a time, mainly to save money. It seems like I could buy the inverter/charger/tie-in piece initially, and install that, with no panels. Then next month, buy a couple panels, mount them, and just “plug them in”. Then in another couple months, buy another panel and just…

Ready to solder. Finally I decided to build 2X14S5P pack, because I only have 2 45A BMS, so probably they will do the balancing job. Together 20,6Ah, probably I can store in these over 1kWh of energy.
