  • With Just a Standard Car Battery, You'll Be Able to:

    Remember, it's just your car at idle, on or off, with your car battery, it's not a nuclear power station.
    But at least your Cell Phones, Tablets, TV, Radios, Refrigerator, and Freezer all work... plus more stuff.

  • Recharge all your Smart Phones and Tablets and Hotspot.
  • Your Refrigerator (one at a time)  (only 1 hour 3x a day is needed)
  • Your Freezer (one at a time) (only 1 hour 3x a day is needed)
  • Your TV (smaller the better, but...even the 75" one)
  • Your Sump Pump (it usually only runs for 30 seconds)
  • Your Coffee Maker if you must have coffee, but see the video on how to hook it up good enough and you can't run anything else at the same time.  Coffee maker takes a LOT of power (for a small amount of time)
  • All of the "LED" light bulbs you desire
  • Recharge all of the AA and AAA and D Cell batteries you desire for your headlamps, radios, flashlights
  • Run your laptop computer about as much as you desire.
  • Run your Internet Modem and Router for WIFI if your provider is still providing internet
  • Run all the fans you desire

    Power solutions
    Water solutions (running submersible pump to push water from a pond uphill to use for grey water purposes, washing, laundry etc)
    Capturing rainwater for drinking, purifying same
    Building rocket stove for use in a caravan
    Building a simple living structure from locally sourced renewable materials - on a budget
    Getting help for planting fast growing wood eg willow, hazel, etc for hedging, boundaries, coppicing for rocket stove firewood (twigs etc) and for useful utensils eh containers, mats, to mark seed rows, fire starter.
    Batteries - what's the ethics?
    What about embedded plastic bottles in the ceiling, with mild bleach in,  used as solar lamps?
    Powering up a caravan or small earth bender or wofati
    Solar showers
    Compost loo
    The lo consommation of this simple home energy solution is equivalent to 6 amp. I have that running at home, in a standard house, runs fridge microwave, led lights, phone charger and a TV/ video player. What's the next step for warm showers?
