DIY Tesla Mobile Solar EV Charger

Post by Gregski »

sorry not sure where to post this (I wish we had a Chit Chat sub forum for nonsense like this) but I just came across this [ahem] "unique' video on YouTube and thought some of you may find this interesting

Tesla Mobile Solar EV Charger with EG4 inverter and battery

in a later video he addresses some of the "hate" don't mean you, and he says there is an alternate design where he carries the panels horizontally rather than vertically

this is essentially one man's project, and a prototype at that, so I think we should all allow him some leeway, he also talks about his special circumstances where he basically parks in a dirt lot and can lay those things out with nobody tampering with them, I totally get what he is doing he is saying hey this works for me and it may not work for you

I remember this guy sponsored his range extender. He connected 1/2 of VW Beetle as a trailer to his EV and ran it as a pusher :). A bit heretic dont you think!!!
