Behold, power tools charged by the sun!

I put together most of the components of my solar power system to test it, and it worked without a hitch. It’s basically a solar panel, a charge controller, two 6-volt golf-cart batteries wired together to make them 12 volts, an inverter, and a mess of wires.

It can’t do much but it can turn on some lights and charge my cordless tools, which is really all I need it to do.
