Comments: 08/24/23 - Ended up Getting 20 used AGM Batteries on our Red Tag sale at work for a heck of a deal! Around 1.8 to 2 Killowatt Hours!! Stay tuned to see these batteries. I am charging them up via the 50 watt solar panel I bought way back when on the prostar PS-15 for now! They are leveling out around 12.8 volts so they have some usable power left! Should have some Pictures and maybee some video up soon! Below is a link to the new Version of this controller its not a mppt but a pwm controller.

Check out the Morningstar Amazon Page for the MPPT Version --> Morningstar Official Amazon Page!!

Comments: 07/10/23 - Just wanted to pass along this cool DIY wind generator kit I found on amazon. We ordered one and hope to have it up and running and a review on it soon!! Check this thing out!

Comments: 07/01/23 - ** Update *** - so like I said below around the holidy this year I had to taken apart the homemade DIY solar panel!! The failure point of the whole system was the plastic sheathing that I put over the cells to adheare them to the glass!! I found that after so many years the clear material shrunk and discolored to the point of shorting out the cells!!! I have come to the conclusion I should have used a clear eva film like this!

Comments: 01/03/23 - Over the Holiday I had a chance to take down my solar panel that I had made many many years ago. Of course the Solar panel failed a year or so ago. I have not had a chance to check it out, I have been running alone on the commercial panel that I had bought around the same time as making this homemade panel. Upon dissassembling the panel I have found that the clear liner paper that I used had melted and shrunk together, thus shorting out the cells. Also failing in holding the cells together. I will try to upload some pictures later today or tommorow. I hope to remake this panel but make 2 so that I can power up my new 24 volt project. More on that later... Stay tuned for an update with some 18650 cells that I have been testing. and the small power wall that I am building. Thanks for taking a look!

Comments: Finished the homemade DIY Solar Panel Today and am testing the unit on my Morningstart TS-60 Charge controller for the time being. Will let you know the specs soon! Also will have the "How to build a solar panel on the Cheap" pages up soon, still a lot of details and pics to go through. Take a look! Happy holidays!
