This week's episode will feature Nick (RV Solar Concepts) comes on the show to talk about RV solar, off-grid power, improving technology, battery storage, solar panel market, etc...
In this video we discuss the differences between traditional Lead Acid batteries and Lithium batteries. Lithium batteries are often marketed as "drop-In" replacements in the RV world but there are some things to consider before taking the plunge! Wat
New innovations in battery chemistry and designs have allowed for batteries that can charge in five minutes – faster than any such battery on the market – while also managing to stay stable as they are used over a long time.
Do you use lithium batteries for prepping? There are pros and cons to this technology. Here's how to use them safely and lower the risks.
How much energy can we make per gallon of diesel fuel? I'll be testing an Army generator's fuel economy while re-charging my off grid solar battery bank. The military generator is model MEP-831A. It's a single cylinder, Yanmar L-70 diesel engine
Louis Rossmann interviews Chace Barber, going for a deep dive into the inspiring world of Edison Motors! We uncover the journey of a pioneering company that's not just producing electric trucks but also championing the right to repair and tech freed
Batteries are one of the hottest areas of research and development around the world. It's critical fo everything from grid storage, home backup, electric vehicles, and even short haul flight. But as the popularity of all these fields increase, certai
Toyota has been clear about the fact that it does not believe in an all-electric future.
...that the facility will need its own COAL plant to run
Swedish manufacturer Northvolt has announced it will build a $7-billion gigafactory for electric vehicle batteries near Montreal that it claims will represent the largest private investment in Quebec's history.
This tiny chip can store solar energy for 18 years. It contains a specially designed molecule that absorbs solar power.
Introduction and Basic Features - Surge Capacity Test! - Speed Charge Test AC + Solar - Split Phase 6kW Test + Ground Neutral Bond - Continuous Load Test + Capacity Test - The good - The bad
That's for the base version with a 20-kilowatt-hour battery pack.
The plan: The hapless homeowners will buy the back up battery for the grid and install it in their garage. Sometimes they might drive it too.
Is this the perfect battery?
Visiting a 10 acre off grid property. There is solar, batteries, inverter, and lots and lots of generators!
Hundreds of Thousands of EVs just being left to rot in fields....
"Problematic on several fronts..."
Tom's Truck Center will be at the Advanced Clean Transportation Expo (ACT Expo), May 1-4, at the Anaheim Convention Center
Sandy and Tom Prucha meet with Michael Liedtke and Tom Pilette from Zeta Energy to learn about the technology behind their upcoming battery cells.
Storing solar energy cheaply and efficiently is a key component for the future of renewable energy.
Thermal Energy Storage Explained.
Lithium-ion remains the battery energy storage technology that all newcomers need to beat if they want to get a share of the market. More of more of them are looking like doing just that, including an alternative chemistry using one of the Earth's mo
3 simple DIY "Sand Battery" Air Heaters! all w/non-electric "heat powered" fans! all 3 units run totally off-grid! the hot sand in the 'sand battery' heats the air AND runs the stove fans! no electricity is needed!
New forms of thermal energy storage systems built using abundant, cheap materials are on the rise. One company is aiming to sidestep the complications that come with chemical batteries…with a brick battery.
