How to build a Portable 420 watt Solar Power Generator . Very Detailed Video Instructions,perfect for beginners

    This 2 part series shows you how to build 240,420W Solar Power Generators .The first video outlines detailed step-by-step instructions on how to build a portable solar powered generator.The second video explains how to connect your generator to a solar panel and charge controller for charging, Also covered is how to combine your solar panel and charge controller into one unit so as to be more portable.This is powerful enough to recharge a cell phone, run a radio and power your fans and flashlights multiple times over. You can even charge power tools several times using this. As you can see, this is something that will provide substantial power thanks to the energy of the sun.

    The materials you need for this project are Solar Panel – We used a 10 W solar panel, which provided us with enough power to keep the battery charged.Wiring – Use extra-long wiring to attach your solar panel to the case to give yourself more flexibility on where you can point the panel towards the sun.Ammo Box – We used a large ammo box as a case. You aren’t limited to an ammo box. You can get creative and use anything that would hold your battery.Battery – We used and 18 amp hour battery to give us plenty of recharge and capabilities for all of our needs.Charge Controller – This is the middleman between the solar panel and the battery. It ensures that the battery does not get overcharged when it is full.Velcro – To hold the panel on while keeping it detachable.Inverter and USB Ports – Allows us to plug our electronics in and charge them.

    • DIY Video: How to build a Homemade Hot Water Off grid Air Heater using Heat Exchanger and a Car Radiator Fan
      This video shows the build of a Homemade Hot Water Air Heater using an old heat exchanger and a car radiator fan.This unit provides near-instant warm air.The Air-Flow: it's adjustable from 10 CFM to 1500 CFM. max breeze 20 Mph! The Temps: With input water temps between 120F to 150F the output air temp ranged from 85F to 110F. *or from heat pump temps up to near furnace temps! easily warms a room or two, maybe more.The heart of the unit is an 8x8 Copper/Aluminum Heat Exchanger., This unit can easily be run straight from a 12v solar panel or battery so it's "off-grid" ready. Simply mounted the fan in front of it,then connected the pipes. then you just connect a small water pump (200-350 gph) to one of the pipes and drop both pipes into a water-filled sink,almost immediately it creates very warm air (in under a minute).

    • How to build a Simple and Efficient Homemade Garage Fan out of Old Furnace Blowers
      This video shows the build of a Homemade Garage fan made out of Old Furnace blowers that is easy to make and really efficient.Once you try one of these you'll never use a box fan again. These fans are designed to run with constant restriction. So you need to recreate this when used out in the open by blocking roughly 25% of the air intake or output. If you don't restrict the airflow the motor will pull significantly higher amps than it is rated for and will overheat/burn out. If you want to be scientific you can look at the side of the motor and read the rated amps. Then with a load meter hooked up, run it and block off the air flow until the amp draw drops to or close to the rated amps.Centrifugal fans are amazing at moving a large quantity of air and the output can be ducted unlike axial.
