|Watertight Wire "Hold Down" No Flapping In The Wind!|
Of course, the wiring was done just as the sun was setting, so I have NO idea how well these new solar panels will perform. I would wager they will be MUCH better than the last set. I mean, technology marches on! If these panels test well, hopefully, I will get to test some Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries next. They are still quite expensive and no manufacturer of "plug-and play" 12V versions want to send me batteries to test. That is a red flag to me that they are "NOT ready for prime time." If you are a tech savvy experimenter they should work well enough, but if you just want it to work....maybe wait a bit longer.
Next week's article (Part 3) will put these new panels through their paces. Let's hope all is well and I am as enthusiastic about them AFTER the testing!
