One man named lasersaber changed autolocomotion for ever. Nice job man Reply Zahir on July 13, 2013 at 11:36 pm Hello lasersaber love your work and projects I had intentions of making the soln1 but trying to get the battery pack lipo4 was difficult so I abandoned the idea of pursuing the project. With this new concept it would make things easier. Also the virtual on demand and recharge capabilities makes this soln1 boost pack combination the the ultimate version. With the enhancements you mentioned on your video will surely be an added bonus. I was wandering if additional capacitor banks would prolong run time? I think the weight would not be a major concern to users. Reply John Nicholson on July 14, 2013 at 11:04 am Wow, no batteries. I wonder how you would charge can use the batteries if you did do as you stated in the video with the 12V plug? Why not paralell with the “Nano BoostPack”? Why Nano BoostPack and not Mini with the 350F caps? John Reply John Nicholson on July 16, 2013 at 4:26 am P.S. I wonder if this Nanoboostpack can start a car? Reply Chester Chee on July 21, 2013 at 1:19 am Lasersaber, You are a genius. Thanks for sharing all these great ideas. By the way, I have found the following site which gives cheaper price for the Super Caps 50F 2.7V RADIAL. @$5.73 http://www.mouser.com/Search/ProductDetail.aspx?R=BCAP0050_P270_T01virtualkey58600000virtualkey723-BCAP0050P270T01 I am not an electric engineer, so I don’t have solid knowledge on electronic. But I am curious to know if multiple of “6 caps connected in series” that are connected in parallel would improve the load capacity? I am thinking to get 18 of these and hoping it may be enable to sustain the higher/longer power draw. Thanks in advance. Reply John Nicholson on July 21, 2013 at 11:53 pm Yes, you can also use 3 parallel caps for each of the “6 caps connected in series” part. But you might want to check to see if you can get a larger 6-pack of caps, the mini-boost has 6 caps rated at 350F. The problem of using lots of the caps is that they do not hold as much as a few batteries. But, a small BoostPack along with a battery pack will be better. The BoostPack can take the voltage spike while the battery takes the load. Reply Chester Chee on July 22, 2013 at 12:16 am Hi John, If both boost pack and battery are used, how should I connect them together? In parallel or in series? Thanks in advance and very much appreciated. Reply John Nicholson on July 22, 2013 at 12:45 am I plan on having my in parallel with the battery pack with the SolN2 (I have a pair of solar panels in my planned SolN1), but with a way to remove it when it is not needed. Cap slowly will draw the power away from the battery if you do not remove it from the circuit. I have not come up with the best way to do this other than just a switch. I am open to ideas.

Its becoming hurricane season and I want to be ready. Also how is your 100 watt soln1 working out? Reply preston on August 25, 2013 at 1:41 pm DITTO! I want a SOLN1 V3 too but cant seem to find anyone selling or building???

I was wondering if you have anyone manufacturing the soln1 here in southern california? I am really interested in making one for personal use. Where can I get the parts needed to makea soln1? Reply travis on December 9, 2013 at 11:45 pm Maxwell has 100 farad caps but the power stor cap or carbon aerogell caps are smaller. You could fill the thing up with smaller caps that hold more charge. Also add a joul ringer and run an led panel over it and it recharges itself. Flat pannel led could be made using clear conductive tin oxide for the electrode in a photo diode and just have the materal screen printed on or spred on to make a monster Light emmiting diode that is a large white flat pannel. Also you could screen print your own solar cells on graphene and usd clear tinoxide for the solar panel. Creative science and reserch has the info on screen printing you own solar cells. Youtube has some stuff on making your own graphene. But I thought I would thow my 2 cents in here. Reply King on January 28, 2014 at 10:44 pm Hi I’m king, I’ve always wanted to run almost anything I own like a electronics off solar power I’ve always known it was posible but I wasn’t capable of getting the right information needed to build a stand alone apparatus to do so with the soln1 I think this is what the world needs now because the cost of heating and cooling one’s home has sky-rocketed to new highs which is too much for a person like my self to continue with these unessary payments. I appreciate you sir for your valued invention, I think in the near future this will be our new source of clean energy. Reply John Nicholson on February 5, 2014 at 10:27 pm King, This device is not big enough for heating and cooling. It can do small stuff like lighting or power a computer, but heating or cooling takes a lot of energy which means you need a lot more panels to do the work.You have to figure out the things that can run with this device, so i would suggest that you get a kilowatt meter and use it around your home. Reply courtney fisher on February 26, 2014 at 7:23 am hey great job i want this in Jamaica and it can be a good business in Jamaica too a lot of ppl want this love if we could get in contact Reply Travbm on May 13, 2014 at 2:50 pm If you hook up you solar panel and it should read double the voltage. I am going home to test full wave brideto see if I can up the voltage by 100%. solar cells if I am am right use a photo piezo effect to make ac power where sun light and sound are both converted into eletricity in the cell. I am testing a 100v 1.5 amp full wave bridge to up the voltage. Reply hing on July 21, 2014 at 6:03 am about Solar – Nano BoostPack + SOLN1 your camera moving to fast i cant catch up can you made yr plan in drawing thanks Reply George on January 24, 2015 at 4:41 am How long will the caps run 4 to 6 LED lights after the sun go’s down? Good desine. Thanks, George Reply Jonnyrnb on September 24, 2015 at 7:58 pm JUST MADE 1 BY WATCHING YOU VIDEOS. I NEC BATTERIES THAT WILL WORD FOR ME. FOR NOW I HAD A OLD GOOGLE TABLET I GOT THAT BATTERIES FOR THAT FOR NOW BUT I HAD A LOT OF FUN MAKIN IT. YOU ARe INSPIRING. I.B.E.W local 3 after watching your videos I joined the electrical union.
