My little hobby at the moment. At some point I'll record a video showing how it is inside :D I had a lot of fun with it

Curious to know how long that takes to hold enough power to run that air conditioner. If possible, can you go further and explain?

When I do the wiring video I'll go over the whole setup and how it works.

But to answer your current question the AC actually is able to run all day :) I get around 1kwh out of the panels (It varies anywhere from 600wh in winter to 1kwh in summer) the AC unit itself uses 400wh and only needs to run anywhere from 3 to 5 hours a day so there's always an abundance of power left over in the batteries :)

5 hours sun x 600wh = 3kwh 5 run hours x 400wh = 2kwh so 1kwh left over everyday and that's the worst case I've had

Monocrystalline panels have around 25% higher efficiency than polycrystalline panels
