 Grin Grin Grin Grin Will have to do that some day. On the subject of good ideas do you perhaps have a schematic that I could use for of a solar charger. I want to use it on my note book. the rating on the power supply is 19V 3.42A output and input 240V 1.5A 50-60Hz  I've never got to play with solar panels so I'm a bit lost here.

Solar cells must usually have to be assembled in series to get to the required voltage. They all must have the same current rating. Or you can buy an assembled array. Then you need to look for a device known as a solar charge controller. Use Google and pick the one you like best. They're quite easy to build and just basic electronics.

I bookmarked the site you cited and found I already had it bookmarked. The memory might be going. Sigh . . .

That's also a cool site GD only thing with these sites is that one want's to do too many thing at once (I'm going to have to learn to prioritize) LOL OK so first will be the completion of the VLF then the PI pin-pointer and then the solar panels. Look like I got my work cutout for the rest of the year already LOL

I didn't know about the Dumping Power thing on the Wind Turbins.

 Cool

I thought the Power just got disconnected after the Batteries reached Charge.

That's all you do with a Solar Set up.

I guess without Using the Power on the Turbine the Blades would Over Speed without the Resistance of the Current Draw!

That's true but when you lose the sun to clouds or night, the battery becomes the source of power and it can destroy the solar cells. You have to have a charge controller to block that from happening.
