Free Camping 101: Getting Started with 12V and Solar Basics


Before you buy anything 12V you should check out this episode! You know who else should listen to this one? Anyone that has a 12V system that came with their caravan or camper (especially if it was factory fitted!)

In this episode we cover:

How to work out how much battery storage you need?

What’s the most critical piece of equipment in a 12V solar set-up?

Why you can get a greater amount of charging from a smaller wattage folding solar panel than one mounted on top of your caravan/camper?

Why you can’t rely on the caravan charger to charge your battery when you’re plugged in to a 240V power-point?

The biggest mistakes people make related to their 12V set-ups?

Why inverters hardly sell anymore?!

A special thanks to Battery World for this episode. David, a Batteryologist from Battery World Lawnton, is an absolute wealth of knowledge and makes you appreciate how visiting their stores when getting set-up with 12V will save a lot of money in the long-run!
