    Obscure Technology: The Ten K Solar module

    Thanks for that. There was a video they made with two guys in lab coats. Shading the panels, and covering them with dirt. I think they even shoot them at one point. It was most entertaining stuff, but showed what could be done. Think the two science guys on the muppets. Its a bit like that.

    Which 60v battery did u get? Its been a while ago but I think I got my two inverters from eco-worthy. What kind of power supply do the homes in Australia have? Just a bunch of old CALB cells. Australia runs 230v Ac 50 Hz Single Phase. So somewhere between 220 and 245volts is what you get.

    Thank you everyone for your comments, and help. I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a supplier of these inverters? So one in Australia, would be perfect in these strange Covid times. But a good Asian source is what i will most likely end up with. So if you have one you have use and like...
