Doing probably-stupid things with USB batteries and a solar controller to try and get my phone through the winter hours:

Am I going to kill my battery?

@scribe Cool experiment! I'm thinking about a similar thing on a smaller scale as I have 2 powerbanks I don't use. But i doubt it would ever amortize, neither ecologically nor financially because I could only charge my phone, ereader and headphones with it and they don't need so much. Cool thing nonetheless!

@tofuwabohu Cheers! Yeah, I'm doing this mainly for the learning, and the training myself to think about these things. My life is still 90% on-grid, but phones are a good starting point because they're so multifunctional.
