How To Build A Portable Solar Generator


A portable solar generator is a very practical thing to have around the house or when you go camping. By using the power of sun, once charged, this generator will last for a long period of time and you won’t depend on electricity in cases of emergency. The solar generator can be used for lots of things and it will cost you around $90 to make it. If you think about it, it’s a small investment for such a useful item. The materials you will need can be purchased from any large store and the complete list can be found in the next link. You will of course need some tools too for the project, but they are things you should already have at home, such as: a drill, utility knife, screw drivers and wire cutters. Start by cutting the wires as the instructions say and then assemble the portable solar generator. It will come in handy at you next camping trip and even at a power shortage, so make sure you use the best quality materials as it’s a long-term investment.
