  2. Wow, that is some thin inverter cable, what is it 10awg? I can’t believe
    the manufacturer supplied those thin cables with a 1500w inverter.
    Actually, it’s hard to believe that inverter is 1500w, it’s so small. The
    other thing, your supposed to have the breaker close to the battery, not
    close to the inverter. Liked the video, short and to the point, thanks :-)

  4. hey mate, thanks again for a great video. I’ve just bought one of these
    units on ebay, very reasonably priced for learning – and should work well
    on my jetski :-) what was shipping like for the solar panel on ebay? I see
    a few on trademe that look adequately priced? cheers

  9. Why do you need a blocking diode, that is only to allow the flow of
    electricity one way. If you were using a dc motor to generate power to
    charge a battery, this would not allow the battery to turn the motor. Most
    purchased solar panels have a diode built in, if you made your own you
    might need one.

  11. Thanks for doing this tutorial.
    I have been thinking of doing a small PV system for a while.
    I like the way you can set the parameters on that charger.

  13. Has anyone seen Dr Peter Skelts “solar powered chicken leg re-heating
    wizard”.Its a double 100watt solar panel linked to a wirewound steel rod
    that is inserted into the cold chicken leg and brings the meat up to temp
    by converting the current into heat.Ideal for picnics,the panels come with
    all terrain rubber wheels to enable transportation to even the most awkward
    picnic spots.The Dr mentions the importance of ensuring the chicken is
    piping hot throughout before eating.

  17. Super Job! You are the one I need. I bought a 2013 Ford Transit Connect
    and would like to install a solar generator that will operate a tiny
    refrigerator, tv, computer and printer. Can you help me where to get all
    your parts? I will ask someone to put it up together as I am a senior
    citizen with no knowledge about electronics. Thanks a milliion.
