A belated post, we have been so very busy lately that posting new projects had been delayed, our apologies to our followers.
This new project is a very easy one, in fact even a child can do this. My 11 year old was able to easily. Now I am going to show it here step by step.
How to make your own solar powered mobile/gadget charger.
10 pcs 52×19 mm solar cells
2 feet tab wire
USB module 500-1000mAh (note if using 500mAh can only charge cp)
For the frame this is what I used
Scrap glasses (2)
Aluminum tape to cover the sides of the glasses
60 watt soldering iron
Make 5 rows, 2 columns when tabbing your cells.
I think no need for further explanations on the pics below..
6 cells tabbed already here on the pic above…
Testing for voltage output. … Continue reading
Sir Sir Ed Soriano from Makati and Lyndon de Leon from Antipolo City.
Sir Ed checking on my solar system :).. placed in my office for easier viewing, it controls the solar system of my house.
Hands on training on solar panel making started after lunch (lecture is held in the morning).
And finally testing their projects, which turned out to be perfect :).
Thank you sir Ed and sir Lyndon for coming, goodluck on your solar power installations :).
Learning never stops…
Well this is what I can say about the latest one on one Solar Seminar we had last March 30 with Engineer Ferdinand Omadto, Electrical Engineer and Professor of Quezon City Polytechnic University.
Sir Ferdinand came all the way from Novaliches to attend the solar DIY seminar last holy week. The venue is here at Tsarina Grand Villas, Gen. Trias, Cavite. He said he had been looking for something like this (solar training) for a long time now even asked the DENR, TESDA and Meralco if they conducted one, but unfortunately they are not offering what we are offering. It was a stroke of luck that he came to this website and saw the seminar/training that we have already done. So he contacted us and made an appointment to attend, and it happened last March 30.
Lecture 1 started… Continue reading
We conducted another one on one training with sir Jong Cruz from Paranaque last March 23.
Lecture started at around 9 am and hands on for DIY solar panel making started after lunch.
Every column is always tested for voltage output before framing the project. Photo below is the framing and the testing of the finished project.
Sir Jong, thanks for coming, hope we have shared something valuable to you. More power and God bless po!
Another one on one seminar was held last Mar 18 here at our office in Tsarina Grand Villas, Gen. Trias Cavite.
Sir Genesis Garcia who works at Gateway in Gen. Trias also, asked for a schedule on the seminar. He’s an electronics hobbyist/enthusiast who’s eager to learn more of technology.
Having knowledge in electronics already, he has very little assistance in the DIY part. Below are photos of the framing of the solar panel.
Almost like a perfectionist :). Skillfully checking if the cells on the frame are perfectly aligned. Good one sir.
Testing his project under the sun…
Good voltage and the test bulb lit! As you can see his project solar panel looked good too.
Sir Gene came again to buy more stuff for his project after the sem. Thank you po and hope we were able to satisfy you in our one on one.
Sir Mark William P. Herrera (right) came all the way from Pampanga just to attend the solar energy seminar, and sir Fred Tapulado is from Carmona Cavite.
Lecture and hands on of wiring system…
DIY training on solar panel…
Framing their projects…
Testing their finished projects…
Thank you po for coming hope you have learned something from us and hope to see you again also.
Well it was unexpected after the Feb 21 seminar we had another schedule the next day.
Sir Jacob Bolus who was an OFW came for a one on one sem last Feb 22. It was not a sunny day, infact it was raining during the sem, thankfully it stopped raining after sir Jacob finished his project and we were able to test it under the sun.
Sir Jacob said, that while on his way to our place he said he is going to ask a lot of questions, during the lecture most of the questions that he was planning to asked were tackled.. he said he was very much satisfied with what he learned from the one day sem we had.
He also mentioned that he was referred to attend to our sem by his colleagues over seas. It was them who found out about this website and… Continue reading
Our next seminar was held in my office here at Tsarina Grand Villas as we thought we are going to do a one on one only. Sir Nestor Estrada who came from Davao City was scheduled on that day.
Little did we know that 2 more attendees are coming on that day, Sir Daniel Ong and his friend came an hour later.
The place was a bit crowded, we usually have our seminar with 3 people or more held at the multipurpose hall of Tsarina Grand Villas, but because the lecture already started when the 2 came, there was no more time to move to the multipurpose hall. All went well though even if it was a little bit crowded :D, the 3 guys continued with the discussion, question and answer and the hands on of wiring system, there was no problem at all with them with regards… Continue reading
Sir Silverio Capellan had been wanting to learn more about solar energy in fact he has his own solar panel installed in his place but something is wrong with it so he wanted to attend the seminar.
So even though he was very near our place he was not able to attend the previous seminars held. He was only able to have time for it last Feb 19.
It was a one on one with him. Photo below is lecture and hands on of actual wiring of solar power system.
After lunch, DIY on solar panel started…
Testing the project..
Sir Silverio was happy with the outcome of the seminar and his project which was perfectly working. Thanks for coming sir, more power.
EE students from PUP Sta. Mesa Manila attended an advanced tutorial on solar powered cellphone charger.
They were thankful that they were able to saw one of our ad online about solar cells for sale. At first they only asked to buy cells for their solar powered cellphone charger project, and asked a lot of questions. We decided then to offer an advance tutorial for them so they can understand better. Asking for directions on how to get here at Gen. Trias Cavite, they scheduled for a tutorial Feb 1. They came a little bit behind the time scheduled but everything was ok considering how far they came from.
This tutorial is more of hands on and less lecture. We did have a little bit of lecture on solar cells and solar power works since they don’t have wide knowledge on it. After that each… Continue reading
