Building DIY Solar Battery Charger/Maintainer For Keeping Battery Charged on Car, Truck and Tractor!



In today’s video, i hook up a solar charge controller in my garage to keep my car, truck and garden tractor battery charged when sitting for periods of non-use. A free to operate battery tender! It’s also nice to have a way to keep my phone charged if the power goes out. It floats the battery at around 13.7 volts, during peak sunlight hours, so it helps the battery to last longer.

Cut Your Energy Bills in Half by Building an Energy Efficient Home!

Energy! This 6 letter word has easily become one of the most popular words in the world as oil prices, gas prices and energy prices have sky-rocketed! As I write this, oil is over $ 140 a barrel, gas prices where I live are hovering at $ 4.00 a gallon and electricity rates are rough $ 19. kwh. Now more than ever people are looking for ways to cut or slash their energy costs!

Back in late 2004 when I was designing (14) semi custom patio homes, I felt very strongly about energy efficiency and I knew that one day real soon, everyone would be concerned about energy efficiency! During this time, way before it was popular, I was building my homes with radiant barriers, energy efficient cooling systems and managed water systems. At that time these technologies were viewed as expensive alternatives to the standard construction procedures and products generally offered by builders, but the sentiment has now changed. These once overlooked technologies are quickly becoming the standard.

With this increased attention on energy efficiency, the real question is how can you build an energy efficient home without busting your budget! Most builders and contractors are charging premiums for outfitting homes with energy efficient products and it seems that overnight a whole new cottage industry has been created offering a host of high dollar energy saving solutions! Despite the glossy brochures, impressive sales presentations and overly accommodating sales representatives I think some of these products are overkill and their claims of costs savings in many cases are exaggerated at best!

So what is an Owner Builder to do? For starters, the first step in properly planning the construction of an energy efficient home is to consider what your overall budget is for the home you are building and within that budget how much (as a percentage) are you willing to invest in reducing your energy costs. In many cases, this figure could be as high as 10% however the average is anywhere from 5-8.5% of the overall cost of the home.

The first thing you want to consider is the climate for the area you are building in and the building envelope materials. Most homes through the United States consist of brick, Hardi-plank © siding and / or concrete. Concrete is green and energy efficient however it can be costly and there are several additional factors to consider such as lead times, renting pump trucks and higher labor costs. With that said, in places like Florida due to hurricanes concrete homes are the standard in many cases so there are exceptions. Brick on the other hand is a low maintenance product that offers several energy saving benefits when installed properly. Ideally you want an exterior product that will insulate your home from the forces of nature and contribute to your overall plan of lower energy costs.

The next step in building an energy efficient home is outfitting your home with the proper sized heating & cooling system AND choosing a qualified reputable contractor to install it. To ensure you have the rightized system, I suggest you invest in a Manual J analysis on your home plans. This analysis will give detailed suggestions on the type and size of heating & cooling system for your home based on its size and location. The small investment you make in performing this analysis will produce huge dividends in energy savings and reduced maintenance expenses.

Another important thing during this stage of planning is to have an Electrical Technician design an electrical plan for your home. This electrical plan will insure that you have the proper amount of outlets through the home and it will insure they have the proper voltage to ensure that you never overload a circuit or exert unnecessary pressure on any part of your electrical system. These (2) steps by themselves will produce a home that will save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars a year on your electrical bill and produce a more enjoyable living experience for you and the other occupants of your Dream Home.

The next energy saving feature to consider is the insulation system you will use. Recently there have been several foam based products that have grown increasingly popular due to their ability to create an air tight building envelope. This is great for those climates that have extremely fiercely winters and moderate summers but for humid climates like Houston, Texas where I live, these products can create HUGE problems because of mold issues! If you live in the Midwest or Upper East coast then these foam products will work great and by themselves they will cut your heating & cooling costs in half!

However if you are like me and live in the Southwest, I suggest using a battled fiberglass solution in most cases with facing on the side that faces the sheetrock and a blown-in insulation for your attic applications. I usually suggest that you use a razor and cut lines in the facing before covering them up with sheetrock to allow the walls to breathe. This one minor step prevents mold growth as it allows air to freely move through the walls prohibiting moisture.

My next recommendation has become commonplace in the homes of the finer custom homebuilders and in many cases is offered as an upgrade by the tract homebuilders and that is radiant barriers! Quite simply, a radiant barrier is the foil like surface that is on the underside of the plywood-like material that you see in your attic that your roof is nailed to. The purpose of the radiant barrier is to prevent the heat from the sun from coming into the home via the roof.

Usually a radiant barrier blocks as much as 50% of the suns ultraviolet rays theseby reducing your attic temperature by as much as 30% or more in some applications. This feature is not very expensive and usually costs $ 30.00 – $ 35.00 per 4×8 sheet in comparison to the non radiant barrier sheets which generally cost $ 23.00 – $ 28.00 per 4×8 sheet. Again, this small investment will produce huge gains via the lower energy bills and increased comfort and quality of lifestyle it will afford you and your family.

This next energy saving feature is one of my favorite of all features and that is the tank-less water heater! Can you believe it, a water heater the size of a shoe box! These have got to be one of the coolest products on the market and besides the energy savings they provide, you will also like that they produce an endless flow of hot water! Tank-less water heaters are rapidly gaining steam (pun intended) in the custom home market despite being reasonably higher than your standard water heater, but it's a worthy investment to say the least!

Our last energy saving product is a Mana-Bloc © managed plumbing system. This plumbing system will save you money on your water bill as it will reduce the amount of water waste and it allows you to manage every single water feature in your home. So if you have a hot water leak in your half bath, you can cut off the hot water in that area without affecting the cold water or any other water feature in the home. In addition to that you do not have to worry about water leaking until you get the leak repaired which causes water damage and mold!

These managed systems really represent the future of home efficiency products with their ability to customize and manage every aspect of your water consumption and provide a better overall quality of lifestyle for the end user!

I can assure you that if you follow the steps outlined here and consistently considering the products and procedures outlined you will cut your energy costs by half (or more) in your Custom Dream Home! As energy prices continue to rise, this strategic energy planning and thinking regarding building a home will become a standard procedure for Owner Builders and home buyers alike.

Self Esteem – 10 Tips to Building Superior Confidence For Success

A lot of people, including me, have struggled with low self – esteem at one stage of their lives or another. That lack of confidence can cause a person to perform below standard, even whilst doing the things that he is good at. The reason could be a low self – evaluation or thoughts of not being good enough or that somebody else can do it better. Lack of confidence results in failed examinations, interviews or even auditions. The best candidate does not always win. The modestly – gifted one may take the cup home if he faces a less – confident opposition. I wish to share ten things from some of my experiences that helped me in building my confidence.

1. I have learned that whatever I do I must do it badly with enthusiasm until I have learned how to do it well. Then I proceed with confidence to do far much better.

2. Self – esteem does not come from positive self- talk only but it also derives from taking positive action that is contrary to what others may believe to be true about you.

3. I refer to a time when I was in high school and I loved to sing but I would always do a terrible job and I’d be criticized, laughed at and mocked by my peers. I discovered many years later that it was not the lack of talent but a lack of confidence.

4. I always strive to be a top performer in any domain or activity I choose to participate. Over the years I have refused to allow anyone to classify me, define me or compare me to somebody else. I have gained confidence through experience and there is no replacement for a tough mental attitude and experience that comes through repetition.

5. Popular talent shows that are beamed on television worldwide may be responsible for exposing the talent of exceptionally gifted young people, but it is my opinion that they have destroyed others in the process, who lacked in confidence. Some of the criticism does nothing to edify or encourage the one who has more passion than talent and needs an extra “push”.

6. You need courage to be confident. Courageous, daring people did not become like that overnight. They risked being made a fool of a number of times by doing what nobody else had done and continued to do what they believed in. The great inventors of our time were not confident neither were they sure that they were going to succeed, but they had the wherewithal to withstand criticism and forge ahead until they succeeded.

7. The fact that I write and speak doesn’t mean that I had all the confidence I have when I began my career, but I invested time and energy and sacrifice working on my charisma, proficiency and presentation and seeking the advice of wiser men and women and now I walk with confidence in my step and boldness.

8. The most intimidating thing about being a salesperson is rejection from customers. Some people are so negative that they have to say “no” seven times before they say yes so you keep asking for the order. When you have built your confidence levels you will be able to understand that you are not the object of their rejection but it is the product or proposition that is being thrown out.

9. Knowing who I am in the grand scheme of things as a child of God has given me the knowledge that there is a place of assignment for me in the world and I have discovered it and I occupy it with confidence.

10. Building superior confidence is not about esteeming yourself more highly than you ought but it means you are secure enough in who you are to humble yourself and love your neighbor as yourself.

I believe you have what it takes to build superior confidence for your success.

Junsi iCharger 306B LiPo Battery Charger Real Review



http://www.RCadvisor.com
I have been using this charger for about a year and I am very happy with it.

About Real Reviews
Real reviews are unbiased product reviews. I pay the full retail price for every product I test. The review was not endorsed in any way, shape, or form. In other words, nobody is paying me to write nice reviews of their products.

In the most part, these are products that I use and like. But I do not hesitate to mention any issues or drawbacks to using them. I do not sugarcoat it. My goal is to be a reliable source of information. These are real reviews.
