<p>This is great, just what I was looking for. Do you have a price estimate?</p>
depending on how big of solar panel and power inverter you use it can get pretty expensive but I guess I have about 150-200 dollars in this one. but works great for camping and power outages
I love this.
Love it very good idea.
It is very handy. Thinking of putting some external post on it from the battery so I can clamp my off road dc air compressor to it.
<p>Nice project! This looks very handy.</p>
