DIY Video: How to Recycle Old Used Car Batteries to build a DIY Off Grid Solar PowerWall. Get Off-Grid backup power in case of an emergency

    This Video series shows step by step on how to build a Homemade DIY Off grid Solar Powered PowerWall Backup System using salvaged and used Chevy Car Batteries.Here we are modifying an 18kwh (Gen 2) battery from an Old Chevy Volt EV hybrid, so that I can use the cells in a DIY Powerwall. The original battery is all wired in series for 355 volts. I’m breaking it down into 8 smaller batteries, each with 44 volts.This DIY Powerwall is using Chevy Volt (Gen 2) batteries instead of the usual Tesla or 18650 cells. This set-up will provide me off-grid backup power in case of an emergency.It’s great that we can re-use and recycle these used car batteries.

      This video shows you How to recycle your Waste motor oil,transmission oil or any waste fuel into 100% Re-Usable Fuel.Instead of throwing away that used motor oil and fuel, you can reuse it. By using a centrifuge, you will be able to extract all of the impurities out from the fuel using centrifugal force. It is more effective that a filter in getting the micro-particles out, and it is completely safe to reuse in your vehicle. The materials needed for this project are Motor Oil - You will be using the centrifuge to convert used waste motor oil to clean fuel that you can reuse,Centrifuge - This will spin the motor oil and extract the impurities from it.Buckets - You will use the buckets to collect the waste and cleaned motor oil. Generator - The centrifuge will use a lot of power. You are going to need a generator in order to run it. Typically, 220 V will be enough to run the centrifuge.Spatula - You will use the spatula to clean the centrifuge and get all of the leftover gunk out of the cylinder to prepare it for another use.

    • How to build a simple Homemade PVC Off grid River Pump to pump water from a river or creek
      This video shows the build of a river pump  that you can use to pump water from a nearby river or creek anywhere you want. It works by harnessing the flow of the river and creating air pressure to push the water further.It pushes water out from the river and up through your hose system, which you can direct where needed. To use a river pump, all you need is a nearby river or creek that has flowing water and a location that is deep enough to support your river pump. As long as you have that and the necessary supplies, you are good to go.
