    Hello! Regarding Puerto Rico. I found your videos when researching solar generators to send to my family in Puerto Rico. I sent the two 100w solar panels (after 18 days have yet to arrive), a 3,000 watt inverter and charge controller. I’m here to learn about the battery packs/powerwalls. I want to make a small solar generator with lithium batteries for camping trips and power outages. Also to get my parents setup in Puerto Rico with a power pack they can use to power TVs, fans, lights and other basics.

    Thank you for these videos!

    China was dumping solar panels on the market to gain control of the market. Solar world Solar cell company in Germany had trouble keeping up with there superior product. Solar world then opened up production facility in Oregon! Oregon has no sales tax so what if you could drive there and get it direct? I am so interested in the new 2170’s

    Gracias por tu ayuda Si el proximo video le pudieras poner por lo menos suptitulos para entenderlo major sera fantastico, saludos desde Puerto Rico y gracias por tu ayuda

  7. Chan 300076 on December 15, 2019 at 9:24 pm

    Do you ship those… UPS to other states…?? what state are you from…??

  8. Jose Hernandez on December 15, 2019 at 9:25 pm

    Yep, Is about 40 something days. Saludos desde Puerto Rico.

  9. Oscar Rizzo on December 15, 2019 at 9:26 pm

    There are no links in the videos that refer to buying batteries. Can you provide those links here?

  10. James Ledesma on December 15, 2019 at 9:27 pm

    I’m homeless in Santa Clara for years and I don’t have power I’m not used to it and I don’t have any way of anybody help me get my own power source so before you go to Puerto Rico why don’t you look at somebody that’s been suffering for a lot longer than that but they don’t have anything I don’t want to take away your good deed I just let you know there’s a lot of people here and look in the states that are falling through the cracks that will never get help and it doesn’t take a tornado or fire to help them deliver a cutest ever going to get any that’s the way their life going to be

  11. Solar and Wind as a Hobby on December 15, 2019 at 9:31 pm

    if u have a cheapie harbor freight generater u can pull the mains at the box and use the generater to activate the inverters…the generater won’t use any real volume of gas during the day…and u can charge ur bank n run ur house from ur array….PULL THE MAINS BEFORE U DO THIS

  12. David Argueta on December 15, 2019 at 9:32 pm

    you doing good and continue thank you

  13. Seventhday Savior on December 15, 2019 at 9:35 pm

    Hey JEHU! you should get I’m touch with Car Guru on YouTube and maybe do a collab video. His $6500 Tesla left him stranded the other day and it might be a problem with the battery. Just thought I would clue you in, maybe go check out his channel. Cheers!

    Basic Electricity 101

    The reason why people call 120 volts 110 volts is because of the variation of plus (+) or minus (-) ten percent (10%) 10 percent of 120 volts is 12 volts so if you add and subtract 12 volts from 120 you get a range of 108 to 132 volts which is why AC power is called "Dirty Power" and should be conditioned by an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) before being delivered to your sensitive equipment like computers and home electronics. People call it 110 volts because it is the closest round number to 108 on the low end of the range. When you talk about 240 volts you have to add and subtract 24 volts from 240 creating a range of 216 to 264 volts so 220 is the closest round number to 216 on the low end of the range and so that is why people call it 220 when its actually 240.

    Your wall outlets produce a range of 108 to 132 volts coming from the electrical utility. Your appliances are designed to handle this range of power so they are not destroyed when being used but computers and electronics need a tighter range more like +/- 2% 117.6 to 122.4 volts which is what a UPS does, it conditions AC electrical power by lowering the acceptable range to something that computers and electronics can handle on a regular basis without damage. Technically you can skip using a UPS as most people do but when it comes to incredible investments in computers and home theater equipment you’ll notice that these types of situations always have Uninterruptible Power Supplies conditioning the AC power as part of their setup. Its better to fry a cheap UPS than an expensive plasma tv!

    How do you cope with the lights fading in and out all the time, damn that would irritate me.

  16. Bad Bob on December 15, 2019 at 9:41 pm

    There is some good info on inverter s panels etc at wholesalesolar.com

  17. Jim Lianos on December 15, 2019 at 9:42 pm

    About the hover-board .. You may be talk about Wren from the Sam and Niko channel…. in case you miss it because your brain do a lot of stuff !!! his channel is wrenthereaper! this people at corridor digital is very good on what they make , videos , special effect and cgi! but they also like tech stuff, a lot …
    also check Tom Stanton 3d printed add to make electric bike …

    also will be good to make an etherpad server … a pad can help you organize your spear thoughts and have it on your phone and check a list or put a url to save! from anywhere! I use it and , and every time I use it I find what want … and where I go !! every time I don’t update it or use it , is bad time! I forget names , stuff to buy or do! so it help me! If you don’t like you can find other option and not forget name and stuff!! just saying!

    P.S. I am in an orbit to find what parts can buy to make this 3d printing electric bike! I don’t know what to do with batteries ! is not so easy to buy from my country! … also I want it to buy a small batteries just to see how will work and run! Then make my batteries back!! The Question is how to charge the batteries when you run on a downhill road and how when it break! how much % go to the batteries … and you must use brussels motors and drivers for it!

  18. Rubin lopez on December 15, 2019 at 9:43 pm

    26k on a live chat. People really like the videos my man. 💪 either ur viewers really watch u. Or these other YouTuber buy their subscribers 🤣😂🤣

  19. Juan Rodriguez on December 15, 2019 at 9:44 pm

    Hello! You were talking about a guy that has rhus UPS for sale for 50$ can you put me in contact with him?

  20. Austin Chopra on December 15, 2019 at 9:45 pm

    whats going on with the audio

  21. S Chang on December 15, 2019 at 9:45 pm

    some Best Power UPS and Powerware 5115 1400VA UPS uses 36V configuration… 3x12V9A battery configuration. These are true RMS sine wave UPS and industrial duty grade and can be had for real cheap on ebay… I acutally got three new one sitting in my basement.

    Your a true inspiration!

  23. Joshua B on December 15, 2019 at 9:50 pm

    Yooo!!! Love the videos!! Excited about the projects!!!

  24. Charles Tatakis on December 15, 2019 at 9:50 pm

    Good information about parallel ecar batteries. There are folks on youtube who have constructed 10KVA battery systems to add to Nissan leafs to secure a 100+mile range but from what you’ve said it is dicey if there are devices that identify foreign battery assist.

  25. Jim Hubbard on December 15, 2019 at 9:50 pm

    I know this question is a little off topic for this video, but I didn’t know where best to ask…so here it goes…. I’ve just gotten into your channel and I like the idea of making my own battery packs for experimental vehicles and such, but what about cooling? I think that Tesla has cooling beside (or between) all of their cells to help limit cells overheating. Have you seen anything that could be used to add cooling to the cells when we build our own battery packs? IS cooling even needed? Didn’t Tesla have a couple of cars catch fire in the beginning? Was this due to improper cooling of the cells? Thanks for the great info! Keep it up!

  26. Romeo Baltunado on December 15, 2019 at 9:51 pm

    Can you remove the timer of a ups so i can use it longer.?

  27. Vic G on December 15, 2019 at 9:51 pm

    Jehu what is a good quality charge controller and power inverter?

  28. Shahran Samsudin on December 15, 2019 at 9:51 pm

    Hi Jehu, thank you for your knowledge sharing. Really like & subscribed your channel. Some questions for you;
    1. Could you explain what is solar inverter & charge controller? is it 2 separate stuffs or 2-in-1? what are the pros & cons if I use either one or both? what is the diagram if i want to use either one or both.
    2. In my country, we can’t sell excess power. It’s also illegal to touch anything from the provider up to provided cable to main breaker (after the meter). It’s OK to modify in the distribution box including main breaker. so, how can I wire things up? Even when the grid is on, I want my house to be powered by solar whenever possible, prioritising to fully charge batteries, then up to 50% powerwall capasity usage at night. So, while house being powered by solar, I need a device to cut off anything from the grid or make it on standby. Upon grid failure, main breaker from the grid still ON, while my house still have power from solar but I don’t want the current goes to their line. is there a solution?
    p/s: sorry for bad explaination & english.

    1:59 the light above the couch came on by it’s self it’s done that a couple of times spooky!

  31. charlie - uk on December 15, 2019 at 9:52 pm

    Jehu, don’t you worry that your house might burn down, from using all those Chinese, hoverboard batteries, they don’t exactly have a stellar reputation, for reliability. I hope you’ve got some good online smoke detectors…:-)

  32. Kurt Zxcvb on December 15, 2019 at 9:53 pm

    Do you have a website where I can go to get the batteries you have for sale? Thank you

  33. mmichlind on December 15, 2019 at 9:55 pm

    The most that my house uses during the summer is 76 kWh

  34. This Is Slammin on December 15, 2019 at 9:55 pm

    No disrespect, but why use the “Tesla” name? Why not come up with your own brand?
    I just started watching your channel last night. Subscribed.

    at about 7:45 the video and audio are not matched up

  36. Jake Stephens on December 15, 2019 at 9:57 pm

    Who manufactured that 2170? And what is the test capacity?

  37. Michael Ayliffe on December 15, 2019 at 9:59 pm

    The South Australian Jamesrown battery is half complete at end of September. When Elon Musk was here for the Adelaide International Space Confrance, Elon went up to Jamestown to thank his people, the locals and give a hard sell.

  38. Bindaas Bidu on December 15, 2019 at 9:59 pm

    I think you have to use inverter Technology when the current passes directly it allows direct current when the current flow is coming when the current goes out it takes power from the battery the same system you can use in the car when the car is running the generator can charge 1 battery and and another battery will supply power to its kar when the power goes out from the battery it automatically switches to another battery and use the car to run this technology we can install in electric car by improving the technology by some experts I think the electrical future is more bright uses technology in your car think about it make a project on it I think this Friday will definitely works I hope you will do project on this thank you

  39. Don Paul Beletsky on December 15, 2019 at 10:00 pm

    I just watched your live chat (a day later), and really enjoyed it. Three comments:
    1. You didn’t really talk much about UPS vs. inverter, which was the title that drew me in. My question is why would anyone try to use a UPS to do what an inverter does? You briefly discussed the difference and you were pretty accurate. A UPS is not designed for the continuous use an inverter handles. If you tried to use it that way, I feel that it would be extremely NOT cost effective, as UPS units are pretty expensive for their capacity. I would be more inclined to find a way to use an inverter as a UPS! (i.e. devise an automatic turn on when the electricity turns off) Then you would have a UPS that could run for hours instead of minutes. Of course it would probably take more power to recharge.
    2. Grid-tie systems for solar have been around about as long as off-grid systems. In fact, the book I got to help design my off-grid system, "The Solar Electric House" (copyright 1987-1993, by Steven J. Strong), talks almost more about grid-tie systems than off-grid ones. Since I live truly off-grid in rural northeastern Arizona (outside of Snowflake), I have no interest in grid-tie systems. However, the documentation and the components are out there already.
    3. I AM interested in your 36V hoverboard battery packs! However, how do you interface them to a typical inverter, that usually comes in 12V/24V/48V configurations?

  40. zorro buster on December 15, 2019 at 10:01 pm

    Boost charge controllers are horribly inefficient. you want to get a mppt to go down in voltage so amps will increase.

  41. Robert Mitchell on December 15, 2019 at 10:04 pm

    saw something called the connectador put out by a utility company (inverter meter etc… built in a compact design)?

  42. Terry Lanig on December 15, 2019 at 10:07 pm

    I am new to this 18650 battery making but I am obsessed, I have a question about hooking up a BMS to a 3s 75p. I am shooting for a small power-wall for my RV. I can’t find and good BMS video’s. WILL THE 75p auto level without a BMS? Or can I hook up 1 BMS to connect 1 wire to each 75p pack. This is probably a dumb question but I can’t find a good source on this.

  43. James Ledesma on December 15, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    Videos hard to follow because your lips somehow got lost in the track with the sound is not with the your lips you if you got sink wrong you can hear you talking great but when you’re actually whatever you’re talking you’re not doing the same thing with your body so somehow the track got off it started out okay but in the end it’s videos to talk and follow what you’re talking about cuz you’re not moving to the the speech that you’re talking about it’s funny you just added that the voice is way off track so if I can just listen to it as soon as I make it a video I will be able to understand it I’m homeless in America and I could use some kind of fucking electrical system but nobody’s going to give me anything and if I do get any money someone’s going to steal it

  44. MrBrymstond on December 15, 2019 at 10:09 pm

    Do you listen to yourself?

  45. cricketol on December 15, 2019 at 10:10 pm

    I can help the ups does not like to be overcharged having a switch will help with out needing to reset the ups. Apc ups rs 500 from the Philippines

  46. all motor on December 15, 2019 at 10:10 pm

    there is that awful so-cal internet. I only caught 1/2 of what you said. some huge chunks of no sound, video and audio clipping and pixilation. I love your channel. missed this video. even though I saw it!

  47. Airsoft Operator Sensai on December 15, 2019 at 10:10 pm

    You will make a super impression to our younger future techs! Thank you for what you do!

  48. Chris Mccarthy on December 15, 2019 at 10:11 pm

    Do you have any more of those 18 650 s that are in the red and black plastic casing? I would like to buy some for a portable solar generator to build for myself while I go camping with the Boy Scouts. Thank you.

  49. Nathaniel Murillo on December 15, 2019 at 10:11 pm

    How is you solar roof coming along?

  50. htmagic on December 15, 2019 at 10:13 pm

    Supercapacitors do not slowly charge. They charge quickly. Then they can dump their charge into batteries…
