My Advice:

I am not a fan of buying things so I usually make from what I have. In this instructable I wired 2 four battery holder and 1 two battery holder all in series instead of buying a 10 battery holder. The best part is the holders are recycled from remote control cars.

<p>I need to run a 12,000 BTU/ 60Hz/ 115 volts/ 1120 watts AC for upto 12 hours a day. I was thinking of serial conecting solar panels upto 60 watts (using silcone diodes) together, and increasing the number of rechargeable betteries, and the watt converter to be able to do so. What are your thoughts? This is to create an off grid AC dog house for a puppy. </p>
<p>Great project, thanks for posting!</p>
