Stay Off-Grid Longer with these Hacks

This is of course, the big problem for anyone stepping of and on the grid or simply wanting to.  plenty of practical advice and yes, you need to be comfortable with wires and circuits or enough so to get by.  I will add that this is a great introduction to what is needed and should stop you from blowing up gear.

If you learn respect, then you have gained,

The big problem everyone has is that they depend on AC power and running invertors cause you to waste at least half the input energy and they run for hours.

It makes good sense to have an efficient DC battery such as your car and to then run the correct Dc line to your internal charging station. We are already half there with our car systems and setting up an additional batterty pack in the home makes good sense.  actualloy expect an used battery market to spring up.

This is a new market for skilled technitions who can do what5 this guy does.

Stay Off-Grid Longer with these Hacks - How I converted our "On-Grid" electric devices to run on DC power and ditch the losses of your inverter. 

I show how we've converted Laptops, 3D printers, Camera Equipment, Dyson Vaccum, and more, Ditching the Power Brick and Inverter Losses and using more efficient DC-to-DC converters.
