The following are the specs of my solar kit, what I have to get power and what I need to power.

What I have to get power:

My Digital Camera Batteries
…don’t have it here right now, I’ll update later.

Current Questions:

1. How long will it take to charge the battery in the winter/summer?

2. How much juice can I get from the battery? Will I be able to charge all the other batteries frequently?

3. How do I connect all this shit?

4. Where should I put the panel to maximize it’s charge?

5. How durable/weather/humidity/water proof is this gear?

  1. I do not know how you connect all this shit. I’d like to know the optical density of your camera too. and I’d like to gloat and mention that I have none of these things.

    Nice materials. From wence did they originate?

  2. How do I find out the optical density? And do you mean my digital video camcorder, or my digital still camera?

    I got this stuff online at that really big online website named after a dying rainforest. The funds came from my deceased grandmother. I owe her, and my Grandfather a very big thank you, seeing as how their life long earnings are paying for my freedom… of mind anyway.
