How To Build A Portable Solar Power System For Camping, Boating, Off Grid LivingPhoto –

Here’s a very matter-of-fact video that will tell you all you need to know about creating your own small scale solar power system. This one was made for use on a boat – it is very compact and could be used in all sorts of locations. Robert Berndt clearly explains the function of each component in the system and how they are connected together – it is important to do this in the right order, which he will show you.

The principles shown here can be scaled up for a larger system, all you need to do is check the limits for each component and buy accordingly. For larger systems, you’ll need more/ bigger batteries, a sine wave inverter, and heavy duty wiring.

Here’s a list of the parts you need:

Inverter – converts 12-volt DC to 110-volt or 240-volt AC power so you can plug in standard household devices, up to 1500W (safer to stay well below the max output level). If you use your system for 12-volt appliances only, it will be more efficient without an inverter, otherwise, connect it only when needed or use a relay switch that will isolate it when not being used.

Charge controller – fully adjustable, the readout gives battery voltage level, current input and redirects excess power.

Load breaker – protects sensitive equipment.

Solar panel – 40 watt

Diode block – sometimes built into the solar panel.

Battery – worth buying a good one, preferably a deep cycle battery that will last much longer and can handle regular discharging.

Heat sink/ spotlight – to disperse excess power.

Another useful tip: don’t forget to earth your battery and the metal casing of the inverter if there’s no earth terminal.

Ok, here’s the video:

I Can't Help Showing This Off:

If you haven't heard of Claude Davis yet do yourself a huge favor and watch this video.

Lost Ways Of Survival Video

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.

We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.

Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:

There's a general belief that if you bury a shipping container you can create an awesome root cellar / storm shelter / survival bunker.

But is a shipping container strong enough to handle the pressure?

    Nice, but for camping you can buy a complete 12 V solar system with 3 switched light bulbs, spotlight and phone charger for $30.00 or less on Amazon. On the one I got, it will power all three bulbs for 18 hours on a 4 hour charge.
