Introduction: Solar Window Panel From Scraps.
I measured the dimensions of my Sunny Window. I decided to use the afternoon sun exposed side.
Please excuse if I use wrong words, I was in an accident recently, and am still recovering.
For this Project I took items from my home.
- I medium thick Display board.
- Velcro pieces, As many as you need to attach the solar roll up with. I would suggest to reinforce the solar panel fastening with a craft wire to the craft board.
I found out that Sun heat has melting effect on the VELCRO GLUE.
- an Exacto knife to cut a hole in the bottom of the panel . To feed the charging wires through.
- I have 4 roll up. Which means the Solar panels are built into a sturdy canvas.
Solar Panels, they can be rolled up safely. I used to have 2 unrolled on my front car dash. I always park in the Sun
They got enough charge into my 12 000 m-ah Powerbanks,
to charge my phone at work if needed. See Pictures above.
Step 1: This Is What the Folded Solar Panel Looks Like. I Purchased This From Instructables Own Author
Joshua Zimmerman and Browndoggadgets
I found Joshua Zimmerman under the featured Authors and realized I had bought ALL MY TRAVEL SOLAR PANELS from him
Step 2: On My White Board I Will Now Measure the Solar Panels and And Velcro Them On
As well as apply the Velcro strips onto the White board.
On the Big picture you will see, how 1 Solar Panel unrolled will take up 1/3 of the White board.
I could probably put 4 on, but I want to trial run 3 first.
My First image shows the double micro or mini connector you can attach with an USB HUB 2 Powerbanks can be charged at once.
2. now I have installed all 3 Solar panels
and its done.
Step 4: Final TouchesI Cut a Small Triangular Opening Into the Lowest Part of My White Background.
This part will lead my charging wires back into my house.
I installed the total panel in less than 5 minutes , and my 2 Solar Powerbanks are connected.
I ordered the new weather resistent Powerbanks From BROWN DOG GADGETS.com
They will make a nice addition.
My last note. Power charging sucks a lot of power, and i am trying to get off the grid
