This is a video I made of a grab and go solar power box. I made it for camping (powering gear, lights and such) and for our frequent power outages around the house (which is shown in the video).

The box is from a company that makes emergency lights (the ones you see in buildings for when the lights go out) and the rest is just common stuff. The controller can be bought from Amazon. The panels are just 1-2 40 watters.

The output plugs I chose are the common car cigarette lighter plugs since you can buy literally hundreds of different things that fit them and most hams have used them in mobile applications.

I have 4 more videos on the basics of putting one together.
