Old Solar Power fence charger

Recommended Posts

Thanks for writing P210SIG, here is what I find online about one of them.

  • Power source: 6 volt 14 amp hour lead-acid gel cell battery
  • Suitable for: Deer, horses, cattle, pigs, and dogs
  • Range: Up to 25 miles
  • Power range listed by Parmak: 0.75-1.8 joules
  • Peak open circuit voltage: 11.5 kilovolts
  • Peak voltage with a 500 ohm load: 2.6 kilovolts

They are both 6V chargers, so I was thinking about hooking them up in series to produce a 12V charging system. This should recharge my 12V batteries?

you only think you don't need them, I have found that I use these to keep critters out of my chicken coup garden and I had a friend wrap his house to keep out squirrels and raccoons.   It is weird that for years you have no problems then BANG some off the wall trouble and you find you got rid of a tool that could have dealt with the problem.

In the back of my mind, I was thinking more or less the same thing.

My 6 volt trickle charger is .5 amps...I know that won't run a house but in a teotwawki I'd take it over nothing.

That would charge AA, AAA, C, & D batteries.

It also depends how much sun light you get in your area.

Make sure you have a amps surge protector when charging any batteries.

One would be pissed mad if their batteries got fried. 

I’ve done it once when I first started, a $300 Plus lesson learned from one battery.

Here’s an idea for folks who are in a extremely limited budget.Say $50 maybe less, if you need to light up most of the rooms in you dwelling. This is for having lights & nothing else, no cooking, no fridge, no fan, no air conditioning, no washer & dryer, etc etc. 

One can purchase walkway solar lights from dollar stores, Home Depot, etc.

These items cost from $3-5 each, In my area. You leave them outside to charge during the day time, then at night time, bring them indoors.

Put as many as you want to brighten up a room or just one for low lighting. 

For $50 one could get at least a dozen, if not more of these  walkway solar lights.

They are cheap but effective.

Put one on the outside of your bug out bag for charging in the day time, At night you’ll be a beacon of light.

Now that you know, go get one or a dozen .

Lights for everyone!

A multimeter is a valuable asset to have if your going to have a solar system, learn what Amps, Volts & Watts mean....

Solar panels charges your batteries.

Batteries stores energy.

Inverters converts DC into AC current. There are 2 kinds of inverters, moderfied sine wave & pure sine wave.

Pure sine wave is the way to go, better of the 2 systems & costs more money.

There is energy lost when converting DC to AC current.

There’s hardly any energy lost if you use DC 12 volt appliances, one can find them in most Truckers stops of check the web.

What I do to save energy when using a solar system is this, lights LED, fridge through inverter solar, cooling a fan, air conditioning draws too much power. 

Heating & cooking, a wood stove would be a better choice.

These are my views of things from my own personal experiences.

If theirs a more efficient ways of doing things to save energy, do post them. I like to know & learn new things every day.

To me knowledge is power.

    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
