I've had battery powered lawn mowers before and the biggest problem I've had with them is keeping them charged. You have to either plug them in or take the battery out and that sucks.
This is one solution to the problem. Install solar panels on the mower and just leave it parked in the sun to charge it.
Here's how I did it!
Step 1: Tools and Materials Needed
- Soldering iron
- Wire stripper
- Volt meter
- Screw driver
- Battery Powered Lawn Mower
- 2 - 12 volt Photovoltaic Solar Panels
- 4 - General purpose rectifier diodes
- Double-stick tape
- Nuts, Bolts & Washers
