Re: Vaping/Mods/Ecigs & The Playa

That's a lot of preparation just to use ecigs on the playa, but then again, ecig enthusiasts do tend to get pretty serious about their hobby.

Re: Amperage draw before and after DC to AC inverter

Voltage and length are the main factors determining wire thickness required. As voltage goes up, the amperage for the same total power goes down. So 12 volts requires thicker wire for the same total power = wattage. It's the same way mass and speed can result in the same foot/pounds with different ...

Re: Using car's battery for yurt power?

To answer OP's question. The short answer is it's not a great idea to using a starting battery for playa power, but not necessarily a terrible idea. But, how deeply you discharge makes a difference. Here's another site's general estimates on the number of discharges possible with the two types of le...

Re: Maintenance free lead-acid marine batteries

Piggybacking on this - what would happen if an MPPT controller is used to feed the charge controller? Would it work and just be inefficient/not ideal or could it mess things up? Thanksss Why connect a controller to yet another controller? In general, you'd want to know the output characteristics of...
