You are a real life inspiration!
Tsk! My Surface Book 2 runs out of battery after a little more than a hour of Witcher 3 with the device performance on Optimized.
Shoot! That's so cool!
I have in my basement 320AH worth of AGM batteries plus a couple of solar panels and assorted cables and electronics. -I was hoping to find a good place to rig them up, but haven't yet. They're collecting dust. What a shame! Maybe next Summer I'll make a point of getting on that.
My aim was to run my whole digital studio off the sun! (Using laptops, this can be done within reason in terms of being worry-free, so long as you don't get a bunch of cloudy days in a row.)
My dream solar build.
Yep. That's about $8000 worth of battery right there, if my rudimentary math still holds.
I was taking care of a solar house for a couple of weeks some years back now. They had gone solar out of rational necessity; they'd built far back from the main road, and when it came time to hook up electrical, the power company quoted them, "You'll need a half dozen hydro poles, $1000 each, plus hook up fees. $8,000 total."
And the family building it thought, "How much does $8000 buy in terms of solar?"
Bam. Solar house. They haven't looked back, and it defined much of their thinking and life after that. It's a super neat house!
I'm dying for an update.
Yeah, I've always wondered how things would've turned out for my uncle if he'd had access to such technology --- he had a wonderfully remote home near a mountaintop, but needed power for his shop and his house, so paid to have power run up the mountain --- immediately after that all the property below his home got developed as folks were able to tap into the power line he'd paid for.
WTF! Didn't he make them pay to get connected?

Is Acer hiding the switch 7 from reviewers. Where is it?
