Blonde much? :doh:
Probably forgot what I said about a portable solar panel (15 watts) that I mentioned to Dollyce. I found the link and the marine battery was for off-grid power storage and recharge for phone and laptop.
Come to think of it, Dollyce, if you are handy with electronic components and solder you could build your own solar panel for your laptop and phone power need when you go off grid.
On the same site are plans for a larger 60 watt solar panel and also for a wind turbine.
I was just doing more research and it looks like the charge controller design is flawed and could let a wind turbine over-spin and melt down the motor windings. Well, it isn’t knitting so might as well just stop talking about it. :shrug:
Solar panels could be useful when off grid. They are very quite.
