Slightly dodgy solar setup


My dodgy experimental solar setup. Its just pieced together for today to see if the second hand regulator works.

It must be working. We’re catching 10.5V of free electricity when its overcast. This jumps up to 11 when the sun shines fully.

Of course, thats not enough to charge the battery. Good connections and better positioning would improve efficiency enormously. At least I know it works for now.
