    Bought a 10x13 lightweight tarp. I have plenty of quality canvas tarps...plenty of heavy duty vinyl tarps.

    This will go along with the BOB and get used as a tent or just a shelter.

    So, I got this 100w folding solar panel a couple weeks ago. Works great, perfect for luggin' around. Except........ the way it was wired from the factory.

    The leads (red & blue) coming out of the panel were wired straight into the controller terminals. And with such short leads, it's difficult to actually access, adjust and use the controller when the panel is set up in the sun. So, leave to stupid me, I decided to improve on it.

    What do we want? MORE POWER! OK, so this won't give me any more power, but it makes it damned easier to use.

    I stopped by a local hobby shop on the way home yestiddy and picked up a couple pairs of EC3 battery connectors used in RC cars, trucks, planes etc. Just got done soldering everything up, and here's the result:

    What Was Your Prep Of The Day (Part 2)-controller-wiring-redo-post.jpg

    The red & blue coming out of the panel are the + and - respectively. I put the male connector on them. I then lopped off the SAE connector on the long cord, and installed female connectors on both ends of it. By doing so, this makes it ambidextrous.... I don't have to worry about which end is male & female. Since they're visually nearly identical, I decided to do it this way so I wouldn't have to mess around figuring out which end goes where.... the cord works either way,more like a patch cord than an extension cord.

    Then another male connector to feed the controller. This allows me to put the controller in a MUCH more convenient location. On a table, chair, right next to my DIY battery bank etc. The SAE connector I lopped off the long cord got retasked to feed the alligator clips that will connect to the battery terminals. Eventually, I'll get a panel-mount SAE connector for this and permanently mount it and the associated wiring to the battery bank. So everything will just be plug-in.... no gator clips.

    Full-up test tomorrow.

    @Back Pack Hack You should look into Anderson Power Pole connectors. Many hams, including myself, use these for quick connects to any power supply. They are also idiot proof and easy to use. Red to red, black to black and they will only fit one way. Its easy to tell which way to connect.

    Kinda late now. Anyway, it's already done and there's no way to mess is up... they'll only fit one way as they are.
