Electrical things

What do I have?

When it comes to the electrics many people feel it’s too much and a big unknown jungle – and I can relate SO much.
I’ve asked people who are electricians and other people who just are into that kind of stuff for some (for me unkown) reason, and from there on I’ve made my decisions and I can now after 1,5 years in my Van share with you what I have and what I think about it.

Solar Panels, Battery, Inverter & Lighting

I have 2x135W Solar Panels, 260Ah AGM Battery and a PeakPower 2.0 20A Regulator. I bought everything but one solar panel as a package including all the wires and such, and added the extra solar panel separately. It has worked flawlessly, I always have power and don’t have to think about it at all really – as it should be. The leisure battery also charges when I’m driving which is good if the weather would be less sunny, to be able to charge it while driving you need a relay. I have two 12V USB outlets, which I use to charge my phone, iPad, shower, headphone and speaker. I also have a regular outlet for 230v where I can charge my computer and curling iron if I ever get the idea to use it. For the regular outlet to work you’ll need a Pure Sinus Inverter 1500W 12V. For lights I went with five Malmbergs LED downlight MD-99 white 5W and for them I have two dimmable lightswitchs. Another thing I really recommend is having a battery charger just in case anything happens.

Music

Let’s face it, just about everyone needs music in their life.

I have a Portable Speaker (Brisbane) from Urbanista which has a really good sound, you charge it directly in your 12V USB, it looks great and comes in multiple colors. I also have Noise Cancelling Headphones (New York) from Urbanista. The size is adjustable, they fit really comfortable, they work really well and you can charge them in your 12V USB too.
