    Ok, I'm pullin' the trigger on a power station........

    :) Yeah I have those panels angled pretty steep toward a north latitude winter sun. Right now where I’m at in Michigan my latitude is about 44 degrees and those panels are angled about 64 degrees which is a lil steep even for here for winter. The aluminum channel I used is 48” long and I...

    Ooo K….. Made 3 “legs” for the 400 watt solar panel. I’m also going to make 4th leg as well. They were eazy to make; all 3 took about 90 minutes while I was having my morning kawfee. Above: 3 finished product panel braces folded up ready for use. Below: close up of how they’re put together...

    Ok, I'm pullin' the trigger on a power station........

    Yeah. The panels are built with plenty of grommets to use tent pegs too. I’ve already mapped the plan in my head and will post some pix when completed. Pretty simple really but will be both functional and aesthetically ok. “Does It Work?!” Why I’ve detached myself from Society & people; just no...

    Ok, I'm pullin' the trigger on a power station........

    One last thing on this Ecoflow 400 watt panel: The idea of using the included storage case as a lean-to kikstand brace for the panel itself just really put me into “ you’re effin kidding” mode; sooo I hit the nearest Lowes up for some 3/8”& 1/4” aluminum channel in 4’ lengths that I’m going to...

    Ok, I'm pullin' the trigger on a power station........

    Dude I’m already there. I’ve several sets of various cable lengths with alligator clips and Anderson connects. Also, until 2012 I was involved in high performance boating & racing - 25 years. At that time flying across the waves at 100+mph was my idea of a good time. I know so many boat...

    Ok, I'm pullin' the trigger on a power station........

    I don’t think much of the 12ish foot long 14 ga solar charging cable that Ecoflow furnished and I won’t purchase their 10’ extension cable. I’m sure it does the job but I’m spoiled on my 30’ 10 ga cable I already use. That 30’ 10ga charging cable for my other solar panel that has Anderson...
