  2. how are you , If anyone else is find out the most effective secrets for
    solar power try Banfan Genie Solar Power (should be on google have a look)?

    with it – saved a ton of money

  3. what kind of things would this power? I thought you were going to put
    the2nd battery in too?

  4. do you need the solar charge controller could you just hooked the solar
    panel to the battery

  7. Glad the video helped. The enclosure is totally up to you. For instance, my
    larger charge controller is mounted in a tool box. Hopefully, I will have a
    video for that system out shortly. Please let me know if you have any
    questions. And, thank you for the great review.

  8. Never mind, I figured it out. Thank you for not responding.

  9. Yes. I use different types of 12 volt to 5 volt converters. In my ammo can,
    I have added a 5 volt USB converter, that will power/charge all USB devices
    (at least the ones I have tried it with). But you can also get these
    converters with other ends; micro USB, mini-USB, etc. Go to Amazon and
    search drok usb for examples. I purchased all of mine from China, but you
    have to wait several weeks before they get here. We have another project
    that we will release soon that uses some of the converters.

  10. I am looking at using a larger solar panel for my setup. Youtube doesn’t
    let me post a link so the name is below. I was wondering if you could tell
    me if it would work with the sunforce 7A charge controller? It appears the
    panel is within range for the controller but the panel does not specify
    that it is designed for 12v, though it looks like it is. It is the
    “LiteFuze® 30W Mono-crystalline Solar Panel 30 Watt – High-Efficiency –
    Durable Heavy Duty Long Lasting Frame” on Amazon.

  11. great video ..would hate to see those terminals come loose though (with
    velcro) made a couple of these boxes and had velcro come off. ive now
    secured them and spaced them well apart. just sharing the little i know :-)

  12. I built an ammo can boombox once. Considered sealed lead acid battery for
    power source. Caution – (I am not an expert)-however I did read and looked
    at videos on sealed lead acid batteries. A couple of things : A sealed L-A
    battery is in fact, not sealed at all. There is a rectangular top that can
    pop off and reveal the holes that go into each cell. They vent gas when
    charging. Could be corrosive or explosive. Not a good idea to charge in a
    closed container! Charge well ventilated area!

  13. i see something written like AO2 on there you navy ? IYAOYAS

    By Manson Prepper on Jun 15, 2014

  14. You can. Just manage your expectations.

    By PrepperLink on Jun 15, 2014

  15. could i use a single panel from my harbor fright solar system to charge
    this or would it be too much?

    By Soni Colton on Jun 15, 2014

  16. You could, and it would not be too much. The charge controller can handle a
    100 watt panel.

    By PrepperLink on Jun 15, 2014

  17. Yes, your inverter will work. I have purchased a small inverter, and it can
    run my vacuum sealer, laptop, and even ran a friends Sleep Apnea machine.
    If you are using an inverter, increase the fuse size from 5 AMP to 10 AMP.

  18. great video, more please!!!!! im learning a lot from your videos

    By MrWildextreme on Jun 15, 2014

  19. My solar panel came with two alligator clips (red & black leads) for
    connectors. Is it a relatively simple process to cut these off and wire a 2
    pole connector in its place?

  20. Sorry, it has taken me so long to reply. Getting ready for and enduring
    Hurricane Sandy, and a hectic work schedule has been crazy the past week.
    To answer your question, I do not know of a solution that will keep the
    integrity of the ammo can (water resistance). If this is not a concern, or
    you are not using an ammo can, see the video comments for links to products
    (you cannot post links in comments.)

  21. Nice work! Great info…..gave me some ideas for what I am “wanting” to do.

    By TheJWolfProductions on Jun 15, 2014

  22. No, not in the Navy, but I am ex-Army. It was on the can when I purchased
    it.

    By PrepperLink on Jun 15, 2014

  23. Very clever! Any thoughts on components that could be used to charge cell
    phones, ipads and the like via a USB connect?

    By Keith Boyd on Jun 15, 2014

  24. I have one 12 amp battery, can i use a small inverter with this?

    By Green Plasticbag on Jun 15, 2014

  25. where did you get the small solar panel & how much does it usually cost?

    By AvonCTStyle on Jun 15, 2014
