Frequently Asked Questions
Is There A Way To Charge Solar Panels Without Sunlight - I Know This Is A Strange Question But Please Humor Me?
I'M Talking About Very Small Solar Panels On A Couple Of Lighthouses Intended For The Garden, But I'M Keeping Them Inside. They Need To &Quot;Charge&Quot; So The Light Will Spin At Night. I Keep Them By The Window, But They'Re Still Not Getting Enough Sunlight. Keeping Them Outside Is Not An Option.
well you could set up a UV lamp or something.. but why not hook up a battery to keep it powered at night?
Trying To Charge A 12V Battery With A Solar Panel?
Im Trying To Charge A 12V Battery With A Solar Panel But I Only Have A 2 Inch By 2 Inch Space To Place A Solar Panel. Does Anyone Have Any Ideas
I don't think you can build or find a solar panel that would fit in such a small space, even if you were dealing with very low current. The only workaround I can think of would be to build a foldable solar panel that would deliver enough current to charge the battery. And attach one end of it to the box lid. But you'd have to be careful to make sure that folding and unfolding won't break the cells. Or the weight of it folded up won't break it.
FYI, I have a very small and compact 6V solar panel that delivers 340ma. And it takes up more than 2x2 inches.
Backup Batteries And Solar Power?
Hello All, Thanks For Stopping By,
I Have Some Questions Regarding A Backup Battery, Specifically The Duracell Dpp-600Hd Powerpack 600 Jump Starter & Emergency Power Source With Radio:
I Was Thinking About Buying This, As Well As A Portable Solar Panel. Now For The Questions;
Has Anyone Used This Battery, And If So What Are Your Results?
Can Anyone Suggest A Good Quality Solar Panel To Use With This Battery?
How Difficult Is Setting Up Other Power Sources To Use With These Types Of Battery? Specifically, If I Have A Dc Motor That I Have Rigged Up With A Bicycle As A Generator, Could This Store The Energy I Produce?
Feel Free To Answer, Or Ask Questions About My Question If You Feel I Have Not Been Clear In My Inquiry.
Thank You All!
Just get one of those 10 or 15 watt panels you should be able to get where you buy that pack.
It should charge it in around four good solar days.
So long as you can regualte the voltage to around 14V, and use a blocking diode to keep battery back feeding into the charger, you should be fine.
I don't have one of those packs, instead I have a straight 35Ah AGM cell with a 15 watt PV panel, charge controller, and 400W inverter. The system so far has mostly kept up with my nighly use (1/2 hr/night, around 100W CF lighting).
Why Are You Against Green Or Environmentalist Thinking?
I Am Just Trying To Understand Why Some People Are So Vehemently Opposed To Doing And Using &Quot;Green&Quot; Things That Help The Environment.
I Just Don'T Understand Why... It Saves Money, It Saves The Environment And It Helps To Reduce Pollution. Regardless Of Weather Or Not You &Quot;Believe&Quot; In Global Warming (As If It Is A Religion) Do People Still Not See All Of The Positive Benefits Of Using Green Products And Building Green Leed Certified Homes And Buildings?
I'M Really Confused And Would Like Real Answers From Real People Who Are Against Environmentalism.
It's not that I'm against the concept of being more 'green', it's just that I evaluate what is being proposed and make up my own mind.
For example, do you know that:
1. It takes almost as much energy to run a large scale ethanol plant as it produces?
2. There is going to be a huge shortage of corn and other grains because of the demand for ethanol?
3. "Mr. Green", Algore, claims to be carbon neutral, but has many homes that need to be lit, heated and cooled; drives around in gas guzzlers, flies in private air planes?
Solar Panel/Light For 10X10 Shed?
I'M Looking For A Led Light With A Solar Panel For My Shed So I Can See. Anyone Know Of One Or How To Make One?
might i make a suggestion?
how 'bout a skylight.
works better (no components to break).
works for more of the day.
in fact, i have a 10" one that's bright enough that i often look for the light switch to turn it off.
Edit: If you get a light tunnel, get one with straight sides, not one that bends. You get more light through with fewer reflections. The "bendy" ones tend to reflect light back up, rather than down. The straight ones are just brighter.
