Off grid weed wacker hack for DIY solar panel connections for powerful lawn tools.
Panels work all brands of rechargeable trimmers have a battery life issue because they need to remain lightweight.
Over time the charge controller board does not allow for a good deep battery charge so they only last a minute.
You can find them at yard sales all the time.
If you have a spare panel with MC connectors this is a fun easy fix.
An external charge controller (not shown) can be added for quick solar charges needed in heavily shaded areas.
You can use up to a 50 ft extension cord before voltage becomes a problem.
Great solution for larger yards far from power.
No more burning up electric AC trimmers with 200 ft of cord.
I guess you could use a gas trimmer but the exhaust is very bad for you.
