DIY Portable Solar Power Generator Part 1

This DIY 110 amp hour portable generator is designed to be powered by a 100W solar panel and 2 55AH AGM sealed batteries. The system includes a 30A PWM solar charge controller and a 400W pure sine wave inverter. 12V, 12V USB, and 110V AC outlets offer flexibility for powering/charging a variety of appliances. The system is also set up to be trickle charged via a SAE 2-pin port that allows for a convenient connection to an AC float charger. Total cost of all materials required to build this project, including all components of the generator and the solar panel, was approximately $950 USD.
