Powerbank I made a while back - Kid Couteau - 11-09-2017

Hi All

Well when I got on the ARES team I figured I might need portable power for my radio so I made this up.
It also works ok with an inverter for small stuff.

12 volts at 18 Amp Hours

That's a pretty cool setup. What does it weigh?


RE: Powerbank I made a while back - Kid Couteau - 11-09-2017

Im guessing about 15 pounds

Yeah that's a great set up you made there Kid... Cool  awesome job!

I think HAM radio operations and communications is a must have SHTF skill...so important! I'd like to get into that in the future.

Im hoping to set up a new antenna soon
Sometime between working on a certain persons quiver and some holsters I need to make.

That's a neat set up, but I misread your topic and was expecting to see a "Powder Bank!"
