Installing Solar in a Small Off Grid Cabin II

Part II of installing a solar power generating system in a small off grid cabin in the woods. We install the second string of hightec solar panels. We install the PV wire cord grip which makes a water tight connection to route the wires off the roof. We change around the position of some stuff, install the Victron 100/30 charge controller, the Cotek SD 124 1500 inverter, the Victron BMV 712 battery monitor and the Victron temperature sensor. We mount the IOTA DLS 27-40-X 40 amp battery charger and IQ4X smart charger. In part III I’ll give a quick rundown of what each component does and explain some of the choices I made when selecting components.

The Nitecore UGP5 is a powerful dual slot battery charger designed exclusively for GoPro Hero5 batteries. Utilizing Active Current Distribution (ACD) technology the UGP5 intelligently distributes power to boost recharge speeds up to 750mA per slot. This allows batteries to fully charge in as fast as 1.5 hours, which means more time shooting and less time waiting to record. Built-in battery protection and an easy-to-read LCD display alerts users of any potential issues with batteries and will even automatically terminate charging to ensure your batteries are always protected.

In From the Depths you can build and take first-person command of battleships, planes, submarines, space ships, hot air balloons and more! The game is currently in alpha and contains a wide range of single player content including:
A creative mode allowing you to push your designs to the limit and ensure the total annihilation of your opponents.
A campaign waged over hundreds of islands against eight unique factions.
A Story Mode where you can (eventually!) play 15 missions as each of the eight factions – a fantastic mixture of strategy, design and wild battles! Defend your fleet against waves of enemy forces in a series of extremely tough challenges that unlock new components.
An expansive multiplayer and co-op element is planned for the coming months!

Key Features:
Design and build your fleet, fortresses and structures however you want. The alpha currently has over 400 unique components blocks, not including 29 different components for making missiles, torpedoes, depth charges and bombs.
The sky’s the limit, you can equip your vehicle with – cannons, lasers, mines, bombs, missiles, torpedoes, propellers, rudders, jet engines, wings, hydrofoils, hot air balloons, anchors, fire control computers, blueprint spawners, repair bots, air pumps, automated control blocks and many, many more!
Realistic physics – every block destroyed or added affects the vehicle’s functionality, physics and control. Drag, inertia tensors, buoyancy and sealed compartments are all updated based on the design of your vehicle and the damage sustained.
Be part of a fantastic community: (, with new releases made on average once a week. Community organised challenges and blueprint sharing make it an extremely friendly place to hang out!

Customisable Components:
The customisable components in From the Depths allow a unique level of engineering customisation:
– Design custom missiles, bombs, depth charges and torpedoes by combining various warheads types, fuse types, IR seekers, laser beam riders, laser designators, thrusters, navigation algorithms, fuel pods, sonar seekers, buoyancy compartments and propellers, to deliver a truly bespoke weapon.
– Design custom cannons by combining four different barrel types and lengths with autoloaders, warhead types, ammo boxes and auxiliary components to create everything from AA cannons to howitzers.
– Design custom AI by combing an AI mainframe with ‘AI cards’ slotted into motherboard blocks. Add radar detection, laser detection and tracking and local weapon controllers to give partial or full control to AI. Create anything from a fully AI controlled aircraft carrier to a battery powered drone.
– Design custom engines using crank shafts, cylinders, carburetors, super chargers, exhausts and fuel injectors. Electric engines, generators and chargers are also available for backup power supplies and drones.
– Similar systems exist for the creation of anti-vehicle and anti-missile lasers, as well as drills that can cut even the largest of battleships in half.

Small But Powerful: The Runt Stun Gun

When shopping for a stun gun the buyer should know a little about what the stun gun does and how it is used. Stun guns come in a variety of voltages – the higher the voltage, the stronger the "stun." They are designed to temporarily disable the assailant so the victim is able to get away to safety and call for help. The stun gun does this by depleting the assailant's blood sugar by turning it into lactic acid. When it does so, the assailant has no energy to feed his muscles and he is rendered helpless, as his body is unable to function like normal. This gives the victim time to get away and get help.

As I mentioned previously, there are a variety of stun guns, but one of my favorites is the Runt Stun Gun for several reasons. The primary one is small in size-hence the name "runt". Because of this feature it can fit in the hand, even a small woman's hand, and yet go undetected. The runt also comes in a variety of voltages so you can choose the amount of "stun" you want to use. There is the 2.5million volts, the 3.5 million volts, and the 4.5 million volts which are powered with batteries, as well as a 950,000 volt rechargeable runt with built-in re-charger.

When confronted with danger and the need to protect yourself, the runt stun gun has a power switch which will turn red telling you it is charged and ready for use. When operating your runt, you want to aim for certain areas of the body for maximum effect. These areas include the upper shoulders, the lower rib cage, and the upper hip, but in the event of an attack with little time to prepare or think, just make contact with the assailant's body. In doing so, each stun gun including the runt has two probes which you want to use to make contact with your assailant's body. This will start the process for rendering the attacker helpless. Do not worry that there will be any back charge to your own body. As long as you stay clear of the probes, you are perfectly safe-your attacker on the other hand is not!

The runt is light and easy to carry and there are holsters for the runt so you can wear it on your belt so it is easily and always available should the need arise. This alone makes it the perfect stun gun for men, women, the elderly and anyone who prefers a light and easy to carry self defense weapon. The best part is the Runt Stun Gun has a Lifetime Warranty if used correctly as directed.

I am an advocate for surveillance and security cameras but there are times when you need a security weapon in handy reach such as when out in town, in a parking lot, etc. That is where the runt comes in handy and when worn on the belt, it is handy whenever the need arises. Maybe the runt is not for you and if we do not have a variety of other stun guns in many sizes and shapes and voltages for you to shop around for, but if the runt sounds like the right choice for you, then do not stop here . Do not hesitate as we never know when an attack can occur-so be prepared and get your run stun gun today!
