Orangeboard

power outage 9 hrs. I'm thinking to go Solar.

Output Required: 14watt LED x 10 hours daily.

I am thinking to go for

20aH(12v) Lead acid battery, 30w + 10w Solar Panel ( Mono Crystaline Panel). Should this setup work fine? Toal Cost $ 100.

Charge controller is 120vA as shown above

My last blackout was 48 hours and no sun for 3 days. it was an Ice storm last month.

I used my gas 3500 watt generator until the power came back on.

If you get lots of sun where you live solar is good, I use a two part system, gas and solar. I am planning on adding wind power since we get more wind then sun.

Yes, Here in India, South Asia in my citywe get average daily sunshine hours are 8hrs. But I heard solar panels are only 15-20% efficient so I wanted to know if this panel will fail to charge the battery daily. Because You solar system setup is quiet costly over Reguar drawing power from grid

Where I live in Canada for 6 months we get little to no full sun and solar cells need full sun to work best. Most solar cells use only about 8% of the suns energy but if the solar cell is a 10 watt then in full sun it should produce 10 watts.

The LEDs would use 140 watt hours in 10 hours.

The battery is 240 watt hours.

The solar panel would produce 80 watt hours in 8 hours.

The battery is OK but you should need at least two of those solar panels, 3 would be better.

Pls send the circuit diagram of linear counter

The schematic is in the Instructable. If you have trouble reading it or want one more indepth I can get it to you in a day.

Josehf...I could seriously use your brain power for a project. It involves wiring of intergrated taillights into truck. Email me please, I need help!!! outlaw-525@hotmail.com. I dont use this site but can across you In my search for answers.

hi, i dont know if you are here. but the gold recovery steps were great i will get started. i have questions write back thank you

Thanks a lot Josehf...

hello Josehf sir, Can you please reply to my message?

Have you ever seen a water curtain they look nice as well as they can increase the humidity to 100%.

If you have a natural source of water they work on their own just gravity or you can use a water pump to circulate the water.

Most humidifiers are a fan a wet air filter and water and they work on the smallest of electric motors.

The fan motor moves the air and rotates the air filter in the water keeping the air filter wet and it is that simple.
