[VIDEO] Make a portable solar generator

 In DIY

I’ve been out many places where a smallish solar generator would have been awesome. Funny thing is that when you’re done with the task at hand you forget about using it again.

But this portable solar generator caught my interest. I found it at SolarBurrito where you can see the entire details.

Want to build your own portable solar power generator to take with you on camping trips or for use in an emergency? I’ll show you how below, it’s easier than you think. Goal Zero’s version of this cost over $400 and doesn’t include any solar panels! Depending on what you include yours will cost under $150 by buying inexpensive parts.

How portable do you want your solar generator to be?
Think about how heavy and large it should be? Are you going to use a hand truck to carry around a huge toolbox filled with batteries and a large solar panel or do you want a tiny one that will fit in your glove box? The wiring and concept will be the same for either size so the choice is yours. I wanted something in between that I could carry but still had some decent capacity to do some work.

The Container

First I bought a case that would be a good jumping off point that I could fit a 10 watt solar panel on and in. Your case doesn’t have to fit your panel in but I thought it was convenient for me.
