This is a 12v & 220v power supply with a solar and mains charger and a remote to activate the outputs. The remote came as an addition as it makes things so much easier to press a button in your pocket and have lights on in your camp site.

Step 1: The Goal

I love camping and the outdoors but also like having my gadgets with me and comforts like lighting in the evenings.
I wanted a universal power supply that would come in handy while away from any form of power. I complicated this quite a bit a first but have now posted what I had done when I opened it up to make some changes to the unit.
This unit provides 12v from 3 x7ah batteries and that is used to run the led lighting that we use around the camp site and charge our cell phones and iPads. I installed a 150w inverter into the box too making it more versatile and because I had a little inverter lying around
<p>this looks great. Have you got a wiring schematic as I'm planning a similar project</p>
Hi Donna good luck and if you need any help just shout
<p>This is an awesome Idea, we recently joined a hunting club that has a great cabin on grounds but you have to use a Generator for electricity For two to three days it's not worth the set up But your power box may do the trick. Your directions are clear and easily followed. We will give it a try and get back to you on how we do I love the Solar panel idea.</p>
Thanks, it works well and helped me to convince the girlfriend, camping is fun
Great idea.
