    Georgia Said:I am going on a week long mtn. bike tour. Wondering about schematics for solar digital camera battery charger?We Answered:I think you're going about this the wrong way. Instead, simply get a cigarette lighter output for your solar array. Then, get a cigarette lighter adapter for your camera battery charger. Plug the charger into the lighter adapter and you're set. Example here: http://www.bythom.com/solar.htm The reason you're going to have trouble with your plan as described: Li-ion batteries require specialized circuits to properly charge.

    12 Volt Solar Chargers

    Rhonda Said:I need to convert 12vdc to 12vac. I am trying to run an very small aquarium air pump. It is 60hz and 2.7 watts?We Answered:Why would you need 12 VAC if your motor is 12 VDC? But a DC motor doesn't have a 60 Hz specification, so which is it? But a good inverter is 90% efficient, so that is not the problem. I suspect your battery is not big enough, although lasting a week is pretty good, why is that not good enough? 12 VAC inverters are not available off the shelf as far as I know. .Julie Said:Two lead/acid batteries...

    12v Battery Solar Chargers

    Frances Said:How many watts does it take to fully charge a 12 volt battery in 24 hours?We Answered:It depends on what size of battery you have. First, a little background. To charge a battery properly in a way that prolongs battery life, you charge in 3 phases: bulk phase - "heavy lifting" phase. Most of the charging is done here. This gets it to 75% recharged. Happens at 14.4 volts. acceptance phase - keep charging at 14.4 volts, but reduce the amperage. This charges the last 25%. float phase - not actually charging. This is continuous voltage pressure on the battery that is...

    Virginia Said:How long does it take to charge a 12v, 200AH deep cycle battery with a 125 watt solar panel?We Answered:Hey Alip, Graham is on the right track, his math is correct, but there are some inefficiencies here, mainly the voltage curve of panels and batteries during charging, and the heat losses inside the battery as well. Fortunately they are easily calculated. A 125 solar panel that is wired for 12 volts (as most of them are), actually puts out about 18 volts open curcuit, and only 7 amps short circuit.

    Jamie Said:How to charge a 9v rechargeable battery with a solar panel?We Answered:First off, you need a voltage converter, to convert the 6V to 12V or so, or get two 6V panels and wire them in series. Once you get enough voltage to charge the panel, you just connect an anti backfeed diode to the panel, and a FET transistor hooked up to a voltage comparator of some sort, and a hysteresis circuit, so it has a bit of a gap between on and off voltage.

There is no known or projected means of propulsion that will achieve the speed of light because that's impossible -- it would require infinite energy. Various nuclear-based means of propulsion can achieve an attractive specific impulse (one measure of rocket performance), but such engines are currently impractical. They were tested in the 1960s and 1970s on a small scale. I assume you propose to clad the spacecraft in photovoltaic cells. I'm not...

    Car Battery Charger Solar

    Sean Said:is this possable to do?We Answered:You sure can. You just need to realize that it could take a week or more of bright sunlight to replace the power that the inverter is capable of using in an hour. A deep cycle battery would be a better choice. Unless you're totally off the grid, your simple system will never collect enough energy to pay for itself. The first link below covers some of the basics of solar electricity.

    Car Solar Charger

    Christian Said:every thing about solar car batterycharger?We Answered:If you are asking how one would work, then you would need a solar voltaic panel that would generate a higher voltage than the battery it is charging. Depending on the complexity of the system, you may also need charging circuitry to ensure that the battery is not charged too quickly, or charged beyond it's capacity, although unless you have a high capacity solar cell, this is unlikely with a car battery. Most solar car battery chargers are dumb chargers (no charging circuitry), and just provide a trickle charge (just a few milliamps) to...

    Cell Battery Chargers

    Frederick Said:Will my current chargers work with both a 9 and 6 cell battery?We Answered:No you do not need a different charger.

    Greg Said:Does using cheap cell phone car chargers (from Wal-Mart for example) ruin or shorten the life of the battery?We Answered:They're not above lying to sell ****. For example, GSM carriers will tell you you can't buy a prepaid phone, remove the SIM, and put your subscription SIM in it, when, in fact, you can.

    Rick Said:Can I convert my cell phone charger connector into a data cable?We Answered:Since the charging cable utilizes two wires and the data within a USB cable is sent on two wires - you could re-wire the extra charging cable as a data cable. But, look closely at the connector that attaches to the phone... does it have "unused" or nonexistent pins? You will know by looking at where it attaches to the phone, i.e. the jack on the phone. More than likely there are more contact points than the charger's plug utilizes (the phone can't switch between power and...

    Johnnie Said:How do I know if my laptop battery is bad, or if the laptop battery charger is bad?We Answered:The battery should never just stop charging. It would slowly diminish power over time. If you plug in the charging cord and the charging light comes on then there is something between the interface and the battery. Take it to a computer store to fix it. Seeing how you had the problem before, this is probably the answer. If you plug in the cord and no light comes on then you need a new cord.Tony Said:How to store my laptop battery charger? should...

    Cheap Solar Chargers

    Billy Said:Why aren't certain electronic items more readily availiable in variety in certain countries?We Answered:My guess is it is just economies of scale--most technologies take time to become cheap in poorer countries after they have already become cheap in developed countries (although I wouldn't say solar power is cheap even here in the US.) I'm not too sure why this is, but it could be that any new technology, when it is first introduced, is expensive. But as more and more is made, the price falls; it could just be simply that the owners of the new technology choose to...

I saw thousands of solar panelled homes, churches, company buildings in Colorado, but not so much in Arizona...go figure that one!

    High Power Battery Charger

    Milton Said:Is there anyway to hook up two car battery chargers in series to get a very high current?We Answered:You haven't said quite what you have in mind, but the chargers are not the power supply, the AC mains are the power supply. The chargers simply transform their power source from 110/220VAC to nominal 12VDC. If your apparatus requires high power from a 12VDC source, you probably want the chargers in parallel, charging a car battery. If these chargers are appropriately designed, and are rated at 12VDC at 20A, you can connect them in series to produce 24VDC at...

    Jamie Said:If you were to live on TRITON in the year 2100 (Neptune's moon), what would you do?We Answered:The neat part about living on Triton is that you would be like a greek God of Fire walking around the place: The crust is solidified water (ice), so your footprints steam into the very rock of Triton. The volcanoes or triton spew molten, liquid WATER, so you would take baths in the volcanoes. Probably cold baths though.

    How Solar Panels Work

    Andrew Said:How do solar panels work?We Answered:What type of Solar are you referring to? 1) Solar electric (photo-voltaic) or PV for short.These panels work when photons from the sun strike electrons in the panels they begin to move. This creates direct current or DC.This is the same current as a battery.An inverter is installed that changes DC to AC current. This is the standard household electricity.Some utility companies offer a net metering program. Simply put if your Solar produces more electricity than you use, your meter runs backwards, feeding the excess back to the power company. They in turn give you...

Regardless of what solar does to turtles, or wind machines do to birds.....they will never be a significant means to energy, and will not even make a slight dent in our dependence on fossil fuels.

I've known people that work in battery factories (interstate) and they tell some ugly stories, it takes very little lead (and even less lead fumes) to do alot of damage. As far as creating your own alloys this is fairly foolish as well. The main killer for batteries is corrosion and failure of the lead plates.

There's no conspiracy and it isn't the material that makes something expensive but the work that goes into it.

    Shawn Said:What battery has the longest output for solar aplications?We Answered:If you are looking for longevity go with a 24 volt forklift battery and cut the bar so you have 2 12 volt batteries and wire them in parallel. The differences are in the construction of the lead plates, with the fork lift battereis made the most durable. Deep cycle batteries are designed for a life of about 400 charge/discharge cycles to 80 percent capacity. AGM's if you get them new, have a bit longer cycling life, but do not do well with desulphating techniques. As...

    Solar Brand Battery Charger

    Heidi Said:Electricity for my Tent?We Answered:First of all, how much electricity do you need (what will you be using)? For DC 12 volt power, a simple sealed deep cycle battery. For AC, power, you will need a deep cycle battery, a power inverter with a capacity, continious power rating of 1/4 more watts than all the things being used. The surge rating is simply for the power up of the things being used since it generally take more power to turn them on than to operate them. I personally use a 1500 watt continious 3000 watt surge power inverter (they are expensive,...

    Solar Camera Charger

    Erik Said:Which solar charger should I get?We Answered:From my experience, the solio is the best charger ive had. its highly efficient at storing charge from the sun on its internal battery, which you can then use to charge a wide number of gadgets like ipods etc. Best of all, you can charge it from the mains supply as well, which really makes it a win-win situation, for me at least. There are cheaper varieties out there, but i think its worth the extra few bucks for a solio. http://www.solarpoweredchargers.com/Alte…...

I think you are trying to replace a charger (that plugs into the wall, and puts out 12V at 1A) with your solar array? Also, if you're trying to use the solar cells to run something, you can't supply "extra A". Whatever you're running wants a specific voltage (in this case, 12 volts) and it will take as much current as it needs (up to 1 A). The current will vary depending on what the device you are powering is...

So, with the NDSL, it says it needs 5.2v going in, but it can use 5v (to be fair, charge time will be a little longer), which means you can give less to something saying it needs more.

    Solar Electric Panels

    Micheal Said:Why do solar panels stop working?We Answered:Panel degradation can occur in many ways, but they generally take a long time (40yr old panels are still working...). One problem is diffusion. Since the cells are at a finite temperature and receive energy from the light, atoms in the structure can migrate around the cell. If you mix up materials from either side of the junction, you can reduce or remove the internal field and so charge separation no longer occurs, meaning no more current output. This is generally a very, very slow process. My current research is on the back contacts of cadmium-telluride...

We need to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide that is put into the atmosphere to less than one tenth of what is put into the atmosphere today. I do not see how that will be possible. We certainly...

    Solar Energy Battery Charger

    Florence Said:What does Watt Actually means ?We Answered:The battery is 1200 mAh, which means milli Ampere-hour. This means it can supply 1.2 Amp for 1 solid hour at 3.7 volt. Or 0.12 Amp for 10 hours. How many Amp is used depends on the condition, and the actual efficiency of the battery depends on how quickly (or slowly) the charge is used. 4.4 Watt of power could charge it in one hour IF - the charging process is 100% efficient (it is never) - the charging is done at a voltage higher than 3.7 V (or else, the battery will try to drive the power supply,...

The 44.9 volt output means you should use a 48 volt or 50 volt motor, unless you want to regulate the voltage to a lower level. The problem is that voltage is available only in very bright sun. You may get only half or less than that under winter conditions. The power rating on the motor can be anything smaller than the 185 watt rating, but again, you will get...

    Solar Panel Power

    Tracy Said:How many of my electronics can a basic solar panel power?We Answered:I'll guess that you need 500 watts of power for the TV. 6 hours is 500 x 6 = 3000 watt hours of energy. A large marine lead acid battery (about $300 each) will store about 1000 watt-hours of energy (rated at 100 amp hours), so you will need 3 of these. And you will need a 500 watt inverter. panels come in all sizes from a fraction of a watt to a thousand watts. So I can't tell you how many, just the total wattage. Count on 30%...

    Darrell Said:What size inverter do I need to take power from a 12v car battery to 110v?We Answered:For the chargers the smallest ones are fine. For the tools, look at the amp rating on them and multiply by 100 to get the volt-amps they need. To be exact, you should multiply by 120 but the precision of the tool rating doesn't warrant being that finicky. For example, if you are running a drill that is rated at 7.5 A it will take a 750 VA inverter to power it, and that will draw about 75A from the DC connection. However,...

The closest thing we have right now is a laser cannon mounted on a modified Boeing 747 airliner, designed to shoot down ballistic missiles over ranges of a few hundred kilometers (and it has been tested successfully): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_YAL-… Unfortunately, the YAL-1 laser itself is powered by chemical fuel, and the airplane only carries enough 'ammunition' for a few dozen laser shots. However, with some engineering...

    Solar Power For Your Home

    Keith Said:All those advocating 'green energy', can you be more specific?We Answered:People advocating "green energy" doesn't bother me. It's the ones who want to make the change overnight when it's not possible. Example. Electric cars. There are some people who think we should all just start driving electric cars tomorrow, while not using any coal, oil or nuclear. Hmm...how is that possible? It's not. Where are we going to get the electricity from? There's nothing wrong with "green energy", but the current push now is to make the full conversion. Obama is even pushing this.Gilbert Said:Would you buy an Electric Car if..?We...

    Solar Power Gadgets

    Josephine Said:is there a gadget to turn low wattage into large wattage to power a whole home?We Answered:You cannot increase the amount of power by going through any device. There are transformers that will change the voltage of the power. There are devices that will change the power from DC power to AC power or AC power to DC power. These devices take the power and change it NOT add additional power. A transformer takes power to run, so you will end up with a net LOSS of power going through any device. A solar inverter takes the...

    Solar Power Generator

    Patrick Said:Is 2 watts enough to power a HHO generator?We Answered:To run your car on hydrogen and oxygen you would need more energy than your car produces in the first place. This is because of the inefficiency of the engine and the inefficiency of producing these elements from water through electrolysis. So you are right to think of adding energy. A solar cell is a clean way to do this. But you have to be realistic in your goals. This set up is not going to produce very much gas but it would be possible...

    Solar Power Home

    Frances Said:How much watt or kilowatt is required to power a home?We Answered:Numbers vary all over the lot. When built, my house had a 400 amp service, but it had electric resistance heat as well as electric hot water and an electric range. All those appliances are now gas, so the load is down by probably 70% or so. So, I'll suggest an analytical approach. - First, do you want a battery plant? Are you willing to draw powerline electricity in the evening, or do you want to be independent? - Second, does your power utility...

    Solar Power Power

    Suzanne Said:Will a solar powered lightbulb power itself?We Answered:Nice idea, but it violates the laws of physics. It might return a very tiny fraction of its energy to the solar panel, but the light is likely a lot less intense than sunlight, and isn't just focused on the solar panel. In fact, the light from the bulb might not be bright enough to return any energy to the system at all. At best, your light bulb might stay lit a fraction of a second longer than it would otherwise. Also, energy is lost from various parts of the system along...

There are a few things that might be the problem. ...

    Solar Rechargeable Battery Charger

    Ross Said:a few electronics questions!!!!!!!?We Answered:1. You can charge it with a DC supply, if you have a transformer with a secondary of more than 6 volts and some rectifiers, and the proper resistor to limit the current. The 6 volt solar panel won't work, you need at least 7-8 volts. BUT, without a reliable means of detecting the state of the charge of the battery, you run the risk of overcharging it and damaging it. There are lots of articles on charging lead acid batteries on the internet, read a few of them. 2. need more details. What kind...

    Solar Regulator Charger

    Charlene Said:What would be the right voltage to charge an ipod touch?We Answered:500mA is the current that will be flowing into your iPod at 5 volts since that is standard for USB. The voltage rating for the iPod is 5-30Vdc because the output voltage of Firewire chargers can vary. However, I don't know what the maximum current output is since that is not specified in the device. The Apple Power Adapter wall charger gives off 12 volts at 1A. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2537?viewl… Charging it at a higher voltage might also allow more current flowing into your battery. The problem is that doing so will...
