Introduction: DIY Portable Power Station
In this episode of DIY or Buy we will be having a closer look at portable power stations. Those are great for all kinds of outdoor camping or if your garage is not connected to the electrical grid,.....like mine. In the video I will show you how a commercial power station works and how we can create a DIY version which is actually a bit cheaper and can output way more power. Let's get started!
