    So you told us how cheap ,where did you get it?

  2. Artjoms Pugacovs says:

    haha 3 panels, total 50 watts. wtf moron.
    For all noobs, this is addvertisment and a scam.

      I don’t HAVE to post a video on Youtube for your sense of whether I am
      credible or not. I know what I’m talking about. EVERYTHING I build has
      worked, and SAFELY! The sad thing about yout youtube is the over-abundance
      of SELF-RIGHTEOUS FUCKS!

      Oh Thanks for being nice!…When I started trying solar power there just
      wasn’t any easy info before the internet..lol

    • waswestkan says:

      All said was that the lights would or should last a x amount of time, he
      made no claims beyond that. I look at your channel, like myself you have no
      content you have created on the topic, you aren’t in a position to call
      anyone a moron it would seem.

    The break even is about 15 years on this system (assuming $0.11/KWh)

    Cheaper than harbor frieght is E-bay i bought a panel or 2 a month for a
    year and a few controllers (mppt) got a awsome setup just by spending about
    75-150 a month now i got 1100 watts of solar at about 1 dollar a watt
    (1100$) 3 mppt controllers one was 69$ 10 amp 108$ 20 amp 160$ for 40 amp
    got a second hand 24 volt 1500 watt inverter and 6x 100 ah batteries. I can
    run a 500 watt air conditioner and 32 inch flat screen on a sunny day and
    not even budge the voltage one system stays in float while i am doing that
    2 porch lights and 2 ceiling fans have been running 24-7 for a year. I
    built a hot water heater with a 120v-2000watt hot water heating element
    which = 137 watts dc hooked to a relay for any juice past 29.2 volts(it
    runs about 6 hrs a day) i get super hot water.Now i just finished my first
    homade micro windmill from a motor i got out of a movie projector. So far
    it runs about 20-45 watts. Now that i got the basics down with all the
    diode stuff ill look for a used treadmill. I honestly think if your not in
    a hurry just buy 1 peice at a time and always plan ahead . you can start
    with a 12 volt system but purchase the expensive stuff 24 volt because 12
    volt wont cut it when you start to grow also wire is 2x more expensive for
    12v systems.

    • Matt Slattery says:

      +Matt Slattery Try to buy the same size panels likew buy 2,3 or 4 of the
      cheapest you can find like i bought a 100 watt panel every month for 4
      monthes then did the same with 80s and 70s i got strings of 4 and strings
      of 3 lowers the wire cost by like 80% if you wire 4 panels (48v) then go
      through mppt controller to 12,24 or 48v battery bank

    this is probably the best list of cheap solar panels I’ve seen for the USA

    isnt it funny how us men get excited about creating power for free, not
    seen any women do this, yet. I think we (males) are flawed inherently, it
    must be a minor malfunction in our dna. or of corse a short circuit to be
    technical!

  8. Kanisha Holmquist says:

    I will make it. Just got instructions from InpliX website and I’m ready for
    do it :D

  9. Otha Langenfeld says:

    Check Inplix if you’d like to build it yourself :)

  10. Kanisha Holmquist says:

    If you want to make it too just use InpliX handbooks.

  11. Ken B says:

    can you tell me where you bought your lights at and do you have a model
    number?

  12. AllyCutie95 says:

    Hey, I love your videos!! I create DIY videos, hope u can check mine out 2!

  13. The Viewer says:

    My light bill comes out to an average $175 to $200 a month. It never goes
    higher than $200. If I were to hook up a Solar Power Energy Kit that cost
    about $8000, will it bring my light bill down to around $50 a month? I know
    this kit will only operate the smaller things in the house like lights,
    TVs, computer, stereo, etc. For bigger machines like appliances, I’ll have
    to still use a energy provider right? The kits are expensive but it will
    pay for itself in the long run right? About 2-3 years of savings.

    Love how this is two minutes, and not 45.

  15. Sharon Herrington says:

    You can use inplix instructions to build it yourself guys.

  16. filipina santos says:

    how many amp. is your fuse from the solar to the charge controller? and I
    saw your battery , its ever start how many amp hour is that? coz im looking
    for a battery for solar the cheap one, but I saw most of it has the cold
    crank amp. (cca) and its not really for solar….. what about your battery
    from your video , is it a deep cycle with cca on it? please let me know coz
    im trying to buy a battery for my solar, but I don’t know which one, the
    agm batteries are to expensive….I also see a golf cart batteries that has
    a cca on it is the ok to use?

      The $250 now $190 for;
      Three 15 watt solar panels produce clean, quiet energy
      Lightweight, weatherproof construction
      Amorphous silicon solar cells for maximum output in both bright and cloudy
      conditions
      Voltage regulator has easy-to-read LED display, 12V cigarette lighter
      socket, 5V USB, 3-6-9V DC outlets and two 12V sockets for the included
      Light Kit
      Includes mounting hardware, 12V Light Kit, battery terminal clamps and
      universal DC power adapter.

      Where this is likely to be an install it and forget until needed for
      most. Given the 23 V. open circuit voltage from the panels a charge
      controller is a good idea. A conscientious owner could get by with out
      one I agree.

    • Jason Nech says:

      cca means cold cranking amps, another term C rating, how much they can
      discharge.. you dont need to worry about this, either cheap out and get
      some deep cycle batteries, if your budget permits get some lithium cells,
      since this is a weak setup like 50 watts, you only need like a 300 watt
      hour battery… This video looks old not sure how i came across it, but you
      can get a 50 watt solar panel for $50 not $250, and for something like
      this, I would not bother with a charge controller ..

  17. Matthew Sherman says:

    you can get a 160w panel for 70bucks..now they have 300plus watt panels

  18. MrAgnostic says:

    is that a week or so without recharging the battery from the solar panels?

  19. Mark Jek says:

    Normally you will have to choose if your boiler OR the wood burner heats
    the radiators – not both
    If you want to combine wood burners, solar panels, boilers etc etc and be
    able to have anyone of them heat you radiators or underfloor heating
    systems, then i have discovered that you need a thermal store.
    Added bonus is that you will have clean hot water at mains pressure with no
    need for booster pumps.
    The thermalstore it self is open vented so there are no building cotrol
    regulations, great for DIY
    There is this website i found TMSthermalstore,com

    I will give you ONE Kudo: Except for your potentially deadly error with
    your plug setup, your wiring looks pretty good, otherwise.
