Tell us about yourself!
Most of my stuff is on www.tinyoffgridliving.com I have made one instructable, on the website is more gathered information about fuses, breakers, batteries and wiregauges for example, maybe you will find somethings you like.

Did not made it yet, but yes this has a lot of potential also for flat material like tie-fasteners, love it !
True, however the 12v socket should not exceed 10 amps and fuse accordingly, if you drain 15 amps, it will slowly melt.Batteries might have a max current (short circuit) of over 300 amps when put in parallel, I would prefer a fuse any day over a charge controller.
Love the new text, this is a very complete instructable now.
Fuses or DC breakers are still very important even if people keep ignoring those ... 200 watts at 12 volt is still 18 amps, so a 20 amps fus could do, also 4 qmm or awg 10 would be required as wiring
Very nice project, noticed you had to find out some stuff the expensive way. On my website tinyoffgridliving.com I have some info on awg sizes, battery sizes etc. Also on every Watt you discharge you need to recharge 1.5 Watts, so that needs to come from you panels.Regards, Ronald
