In this video, I will show you in layman's terms how a solar panel system works and how to set one up in 2 different types of systems. This video is intended for beginners so obviously there is a lot more involved than I am explaining but this covers the basics to get started.

I bought that 10 watt solar panel from Solar Blvd (http://www.solarblvd.com/Solar-Panels-&-Systems-12-Volt-Solar-Panels/c1_269/index.html). I got the charge controller cheap from Amazon (there are numerous brands and knock-offs). I also got the battery from Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/ExpertPower%C2%AE-Rechargeable-Sealed-Battery-BLMFM12_7/dp/B003S1RQ2S/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1415546997&sr=8-2&keywords=12v+sealed+battery). Everything in that video could cost between $70 and $150 depending on the products you buy and how good they are. I prefer cheap stuff for experiments so if I damage them I am not going to be too upset.
