This is my Solar Power Project for off grid power for my ICOM IC-5300 & laptop.

I mounted this project inside an MTM Case-Gard ACR12 box.


This is the inside of the enclosure. I used plywood to divide the box and protect contents.

The PC140HS is a 12VDC inverter to supply 110VAC for my laptop.


Here are the Batteries. I used two 12v 7.6aH gell cells from an APC 1500 UPS.


Here is the Solar Charge Controller with connectorized cables attached.

This is the 100Watt Solar panel. Can supply 5.5amps in full sunlight.
