So….. After watching countless youtube videos and following some amazing DIY Tesla style power wall projects, the time has finally come for me to start one. I had to.
Admittedly at the time of writing this i’ve more than just started, I’ve procured ‘dead’ laptop batteries, somewhere in the region of 100 so I’ve process quite a few cells and have just finished charge/discharge cycles on my first 80 cell pack, and 75% the way through my second. Still some way off, like more solar panels, an inverter, a BMS, a charge controller and all the other paraphernalia, however I intend to blog my progress and where I end up.
The ultimate goal is to be off grid, so the question is, how long have you got? This could take a while.
