Thanks for your interest in making your own Solar Notebook Charger. We call this one the E123 (Emergency 123) because it includes a 2600mAh Powerbank and 2 USB LED lightbulb/sticks to provide lighting, in addition to the ability to charge your cellphone.
The Workshop is Scheduled for March 13th, 2019 7pm. at community room @ Frogsong. We’ll bring all the kits, and additional materials needed to make the solar charger. There is an option to solder or not – that’s up to you.
To make sure we bring enough materials, please pre-purchase your kit via the BuyNow button below. This is via Paypal. and how we can collect funds via credit card. the price is $95. which includes the kit, extra materials, tool use, and leading the workshop. You do NOT have to login or register for Paypal to use this option. Just choose the Credit/debit Card option and it will allow you to checkout.
I’ll also have some accessories that you might be interested in, including a USB Power meter (see picture further down the page) that measures the charging behavior. It’s not a required item, but it’s useful if one wants to study, measure, and figure out best charging conditions. This is $10, and I’ll have these at the workshop. You can decide there if you’d like one, but bring a little cash to make it easy to buy.
Call or email with any questions. Tor@rahus.org or 707-829-3154. See you soon.
