HOW TO KEEP CAR BATTERY HEALTHY AND CHARGED WITH SOLAR CELLS AUTO RAM TRUCK BAT POWER CHARGER
Hi everyone, this is geRAMicc85 and today i want to show you the new solar cells on my Dodge Ram 1500. I haven't been driving a lot with my truck over the last long and cold winter and I guess that's why my car battery died. Now, the battery was only 3.5 years old and I didn't want to replace it already but I had to. So I decided to do something to increase the lifespan of the new battery. I mounted tree 12 Volts epoxy resin solar cells onto the truck bed cover. I used silicone to glue them on securely. The cells are only.
A few millimeters think so that I can still open the Bak Flip cover without hitting the cells. I had to drill two small holes for the positive and negative wires. The wires run underneath the folding cover into the corner of the truck bed. The maximum output of the cells is 0.4 Amps. So whenever the battery is not fully charged or for example the radio is used with the engine off, the solar cells will fill the battery back up and provide it with a good maintenance charge. From the truck bed the wires run underneath.
The truck to the front into the engine compartment. I installed a charging regulator right next to the new battery which keeps the power from flowing backwords and also avoids overcharging the battery. The regulator has two LED indicators, one for charging and one for battery full. The green one is on right now showing that the battery is fully charged. The new battery that I've got is a 100 Amp hours car battery from Battery Industry Germany. It was the biggest battery that I could find that would fit into the spot. Thank you very much for.

And. since we're here in the ALL SOLAR. powered work station!.we're turn on. are inverter for power. for our soldering iron. and we're gonna be using solar power to make our solar cells. okay once you have a hot iron you will need a small bowl with a wet rag or wet sponge in the bowl. and once you've got a hot soldering iron, you want to shock that soldering. this will make the tip extremely bright in color and nice silver color at the end tip that way you know you have a nice clean soldering iron next thing you want to do.
Is actually tin the tip of the soldering iron with just a dab of solder. this is going to help for perfect flow onto this wiring tab that were working with working. we're working with solar cells here today and now we're going to put, FLUX, rosin on the cathode side of this particular solar cell. this is a must, you need to put the rosin. FLUX rosin onto the tab whatever, whatever you're going to solder to you that's your first step. its little tricky but we use a wood stick here to hold down.
Solarpowered color MconneX MichEpedia
Solar energy is the only energy source that we can rely on to survive in the future. We would like to maximize the utilization of solar energy so what we have achieved here is colored solar cells you know the red stripes the blue background they are actually working solar cells. You want this material semiconductor material to absorb all the light and that's why the traditional solar panel they look black. They probably can only be installed on the rooftop because nobody's going to put these black panels on the side of the building or windows.
The rooftop area is very limited, however they are huge amount of surface area on the side of the building not only the exterior but also be interior of a building. There are ambient light that we can harvest. You want a structure to be able to absorb this light but also as a decorative item. sounds of lab What differentiates our work from work in other labs around the world most of us Connor solar cells that produce color is because the material itself that is used in building the solar cell.
They are colored but the color will be depending on your viewing angle. So depending on whether you look at from the front or the sideway the color changes yeah for this type other decorative solar panel we wanted the color to be independent of your viewing angle so here we actually borrowed a new concept and that it has to do with very thin light absorbing semiconductor on top of a metal and that produce a special optical effect that allows us to make the solar panels that whose color doesn't change.
In our solar cell we actually go one step further we have two different versions one is semitransparent and it can be made in different colors as well and the other one is purely a reflective so you can make it into a picture you know for example we made a nice U of M logo. There is a tradeoff between the multifunctionality the solar cell have versus, you know, the highest efficiency one can achieve. The black solar cells absorb the whole spectrum. A colored solar cell for example it absorbs onethird.
Of the light right I'm passing the other light that I means that the solar cell efficiency maximum will be onethird of a black solar panel can produce but on the other hand by making this multifunctional I hope that it can expand the scope of applications rather than just the rooftop in a modern home we want a lot of things to be a beautiful by why not make it was on multifunctional, not only a decorative item but can also produce electric power. V.O, In a quantum computer we don't have bits of information we have something called a.
Resin Mixing Supplies
Big beam Hi I'm Steve from Fibre Glast. Today we'll look at the mixing supplies available at Fibre Glast dot com. These mixing supplies should be used to mix resin with resin additives when preparing for the layup process. Additives like catalyst and hardener are necessary in order for resins to work properly. Other additives like fillers, pigment, and wax are optional and chosen for the desired characteristics they bring to resin. Before the layup process begins, mixing resin properly and thoroughly with any of these additives is a critical step. Be sure you select materials based on the amount.
And type of resin you intend to mix. At Fibre Glast dot com, we carry a selection of containers made from plastic or paper. We also carry mixing implements like wooden and plastic stirrers and Jiffy mixers used for mixing fillers and pigments. Keep in mind that resin always requires safe and careful handling. Be sure your work area is well ventilated and consider wearing gloves, safety goggles, and protective clothing in case of a potential splash or spill. Get details for our mixing supplies and look through our safety equipment when you visit product pages.
Non Yellowing Epoxy Resin Test round 2
It is so hot out here! It's Saturday, August 22, 2015, We poured our samples 8 days ago and we put them out in the sun 6 days ago. I just wanted to give you a little update on what's happened this week. We had really hot temperatures, we had blazing hot sun. We also had some rain. We had a little bit of everything. So we'll check the samples and we'll see what's happened! First, let me get the indoor samples. Here is our indoor test sample. You'll recall that we poured two different samples onto transparency paper.
This one we kept indoors, and as you can see, still perfectly clear. As we expected. Here's the liquid hardener sample that I poured just to see what would happen if we kept the liquid hardener out, open to the air Of course, the air is what causes the liquid hardener to go yellow, and as you can see it's still perfectly clear, so that's great news. Now here's the real test We're going to check the outdoor sample. So here it is, right where I left it. You will recall UV light is typically what causes epoxy resin to yellow.
ArtResin has a UV stabilizer and another stabilizer called HALS hindered amine light stabilizer and that is what is making this product really, really great at protecting against yellowing. but we'll check the results and see. it's a little bit moist. There we go! So here is the outdoor test sample as you can see, perfectly clear! and it's been out here 6 days already nonstop in the sun. There's our indoor one, and the outdoor, both perfectly clear. So we will just continue on with this test. I'll put this back outside.
I'll put this stuff back inside and we'll keep checking in and giving you guys updates. We're also organizing some third party tests to give our customers that nonbiased test information that we think is valuable. We have a great idea of what's going to happen already, given these tests, but why not put it to the experts and let them give us a nonbiased test report at the end of it. So stay tuned for that, it's all in the works, and we're excited to be able to share that with you in a few months time.

How To Create A Focal Point In Your Garden DIY At Bunnings
I'm going to show you how to create a focal point for your garden. Focal points can be great to really highlight parts of your garden or to just really accentuate certain features. They're also great to attract certain types of wildlife like this pond here, to attract ducks or waterbased birds. Sometimes, plants can be a focal point as well, whether it be a large tree or something that is shaped like a hedge or a topiary ball. Sometimes different materials can really highlight different features. Things like metal, or.
Stone, or wood, all have a different element. You can cluster things together to get a real style going and sometimes use really old school things to get a really cool rustic look. It's also a great way to get kids really involved with gardening, whether it's making a ladybug out of a stone or carving a face into a tree. It's all else mixed to encourage kids to get outside and get involved with gardening. In a large garden, you can have a range of different focal points and different themes.
Around your garden. But if your garden is smaller too, you don't want to overdo it. So you may just want to pick a few little things and subtlety put them in. Just remember with a focal point, sometimes less is more. You don't want to overdo it. Consider the line of sight when placing focal points. You don't always need them to be the center of attention and sometimes subtlety is king. Check out this beautiful water feature here. You have a subtle bird just standing on a perch here. And as you wonder around the corner, you just pick up another statue. It's really.
