Hey everyone, went to Big Lots a couple of days ago and they had their Christmas lights on sale so I took the opportunity to get some their solar LED Christmas lights. Normally $18 for $9 I thought it was a fairly decent deal. So what it comes with is, there is a solar panel here the lights themselves they're sixty to a strand and they just connect right into the panel there's a notch in there so it only goes in one way and this will tighten I assumed to keep the rain out since they are designed for outdoor use.
They also give you a clamp so you could actually attach it to just about anything that it will clamp onto, I assume a rain gutter would be the most common they also give you the yard stakes this one looks like it plugged in to there and the solar panel plugged into there so they give you a lot of options so you can get it just about anywhere that there is sun the panel itself has a on off switch in the back here it looks like a sensor for whether it's daytime or nighttime.
Looked like two AA batteries that are rechargeable on the inside, I didn't take it apart or anything to look to give you an idea how bright the lights are that's the lights and in comparison, they had these lights that plug in. These are the warm lights, they seem to flicker in the camera uh. these were $1.50 since they were 50 off. Normally $3, 20 to a strand. these seem to use about 1.61.7 watts of power so they should last quite awhile if you run them off battery or not eat up the.
Electric bill as much. According to the box they use 90 less power than normal Christmas lights Actually on the back of the box of the solar one it gives you a little comparison. I assume that 600 of this C7 lights about $100, $94.50 cost for 45 days 7 hours a day with the average cost being 10 cents per kilowatt hour. And the 600 mini lights would be $7.71 but the solar one ends up being free because it uses the power from the sun. No idea who makes it, just says distributed by Big Lots and made in China no actual manufacturer.
Shell and Akon unveil Africas first human and solar powered football pitch in Lagos
I was one of the kids that grew up using kerosene candles, coal, you know for cooking. But we do it because that's all we have. It's hard for anyone to develop in a state of darkness. When you look at the impact that darkness has on people, it brings you down. When you put electricity in areas that don't have, you're impacting people's lives, and you're making a huge difference in how they can develop their whole humanity moving forward. Well, access to energy means a future. It means better education, better healthcare, industry building, agriculture.
Like who would've ever thought that playing on a football field could create energy for the whole community I think an idea like this, it will generate a source of curiosity for people that never thought that things like this could exist. And we have to support all the young entrepreneurs, all the young thinkers, to help them develop those ideas and create those into reality. If this can be utilised to create energy that's actually needed here, that'sthat's a dream come true for me. This is something that honestly I wish it was my idea. Laughs.
Burning Stuff With 2000F Solar Power!!
In a previous project I found a free tv and turned it into a giant solar scorcher. This shoots out a deadly beam of sunlight, that's hot enough to abuse food, melt metal and burn things you probably shouldn't. Today seemed like a good day to play with my Solar Scorcher. I positioned my frame and found the focal point, then added some concrete tiles as a base for my projects. Ok, I've got power, and I'll test it out with this piece of wood and when the light makes contact.
I've got instant fire. The sunlight at this spot is around 2000 degrees Fahrenheit, enough to melt this spot of concrete into a glowing orange liquid. I'm curious to see what I can do with all this heat so I've filled a glass bottle with water and I'll punch a hole in the cap. It's incredible to see that the instant I focus my lens on the bottle, it starts smoking. Just a few moments later this water is so hot it's boiling, and I'm a little nervous the bottle might blow. Yep, there it goes. The glass pieces are melting and that's cool,.
But now I want to try this on some food. I'll get some hot dogs, and when they hit the beam they really do get hot. This might be a little well done for my taste, and I'm still hungry so let's try an egg. The egg is actually working very well. It's so reflective it doesn't burn as fast, and even my wife is interested. A little salt and pepper and it's tempting to try a bite. Ok, so I wasn't actually expecting to eat this, but it looks safe enough, and.
Even my kids are anxious to try. Surprisingly, it's pretty good. Alright, let's see what else this will do. I'll try burning a penny, and, wow, it melted. How about a stack of pennies Yep, they're nothing but liquid metal now, and I'm thinking that slag in the mixture must be what's left of the copper coating. It's only taking about 4 seconds to melt these, and melting metal is really great, but now I want to see something burst. I wonder what would happen to this egg It's spewing some kind of debris and smoking like crazy. I hear.
Some little pops and it's even forming some interesting growths. huh, Look at that. But no explosion. How about if I put a pop top on this bottle of water and let the pressure build up Yeah, that's what I'm looking for. Let's do that again. The lid is back on, and pressure is building. Awesome! Alright, the sun is setting and I've readjusted my Aframe. I'm just wondering if this would ignite gasoline. It does. Hopefully it goes without saying that this is very dangerous and you shouldn't try this at home. Well, I'm convinced there's.
An insane amount of power behind these lenses. If you'd like to see where I got this one, take a look at my tutorial on how I hacked it out of an old TV. This one boiled water in less than a minute, welded a nickel to concrete, and instantly torched any piece of wood in it's way. Well that was fun, but I'm still hungry so I'll put everything away and go get some real home cooking. That's it for now. If you liked this project, perhaps you'll like some of my others.

My programmable christmas lights of 2013
Christmas is long gone, but before I put my christmas lights away I tought I would show them to you. Currently the are just blinking in a random pattern, but they're programmable so I can have them to show whatever pattern I want, really. They are currently hooked up with 8 wires to an Arduino so I can control every LED independently. The topmost LED is hooked up to a PWMcapable pin on the Arduino, which means I can control it's brightness as well. Then, the Arduino is connected to my computer so I can control it from there using serial communications.
