but thanks for the boat video ....its kinda exactly what i was planning on doing only alot more solar power
my boat weighs about 1000 and after i strip it...
my math is horrible and everyone knows ...thats why I have picaxe....and the IRS correcting me (of course with a fee! jk)
okay so now i am understanding more of what the solar panel is dishing out in a watt kinda view
the panels are these...
Ok that makes sense thanks .....I'm still waiting for a mppt controller
Ok so is the going rate of solar panels watts per hour? 100 watts means 60 minutes which means .6 watts per minute
I guess I confused my self again....so my panels are pushing 3 amps at 3 volts so 3X3= 9watt a...
Ok thats what i wanted to hear ...mine are only getting like 15 watts
they must measure the wattage of them at the peak brightness of nuclear bomb
I just had installed a solar pump for a buddy of mine and the pump I believe was brush 12v 50 watt motor
which like you said and i say in...
thanks for that Flenser ...i seen some videos on how hard it is to pedal power which is interesting but I am still going to try build one for testing
I did some testing last week with my horrible solar power
I had 3 "25" watt panels in parallel and since it was 104 F degrees out
Well very good questions Papaof2 !

Hi Everyone its been a long time since I blabbed here but

I inadvertenly hit some keypad combination and look what I did to my calculator! I held Control (+...-) nothing changed!
Anyway its been a while since I had time to add my horrible knowledge ...just for fun ...other then the (+) sign on the calculator there is only one other key...
Yes good info...IMHO it would've lasted 100 years if it had solar power ...I built a solar powered address sign with picaxe flashing cool leds ...only time it fails is when snow covers the solar panel but always powers back up when snows gone
