Decided to test my hand at building an off the grid solar setup to charge a pair of Stromers, a Juiced Rider and a Stealth Bomber.

**** Once I put a watt meter on the Bomber's charger and found it draws about 580-600 watts I knew I needed to have a decently capable solar system.

Found some nice 12v batts (102 lbs each !!) on Craigslist , picked up some cables from the auto parts store and of course 200 watts worth of Renogy Panels off of Amazon.

Oh and a 1000watt inverter and a cheap $20 charge controller, Im thinking about switching to 24v by running 2 banks of series batts and series cells when my MPPT charge controller arrives.
