The second was completed over the weekend. Additional parts for the rack and support were purchased. Hardware and material for the battery box for the second solar rack was also purchased and ready for fabrication.
Additional batteries were purchased after further discussion with Chris to determine the best solution for the limited funds available. It was determined that 5 cell AA 6V 2500 mAh NiMH were the best option. Six units were purchased and will arrive by end of this week or early next week. Charging tests will have to be ran once the batteries arrive.
The goal for the remainder of this week is to finish fabrication of the second battery box along with mounting the electrical charging components.
