    or worser, how much solar panel and time to charge and discharge to 50% a 12 volt battery and run a 110 v microwave with it..with the conversion efficiencies and all...people do those calculations, but geez..

    that link can run at either 110vac or 12vdc...they say, and double as a cooler.

    This machine kills Fascists.

      to recharge the battery with solar power, it becomes almost a wild ass guess unless you live in some place like the Sahara Desert where you never see a cloud. I use my simple method and it seems to work fairly well...

      If your battery is still not charged at the end of a sunny day, you need more solar panels!!! I'm not sure you can ever go wrong having more panels than you need!

      Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.
