AGM lead acid.
Would love Lithium but way too expensive.

Still waiting for the solar panel. Should probably order some decent gauge cable for some interconnects.

I like your thinking, but no. Just regular cable that's thick enough with some specific connectors (MC4).

I actually noticed that too last night. Thought you'd just binned off the domain.

Do you have a 'grace' period to reclaim it?

I think it's just the hosting not the domain itself. We shall see! If I get round to it. Long time since I actually needed the thing.

Sorted the solar panel, done some cabling, waiting for insulation to arrive so I can get on with that.

100W flexible solar panel. Not had a decent day of sun to really see how well it performs.



Temporary setup for charging the battery from solar. It is charging, but not as quickly as I had hoped, but do need a sunny day to find out properly.



Done some cabling today and put up some temporary lighting with an RF remote control for dimming, hooked up to the leisure battery

Been intermittently sunny today and it has charged much more than the last few days, so it gives me hope it should be good enough.

Also made a Web dashboard of sorts with some voltage data and GPS Tracking
