    6) What parts do you use on your Samba? https://j35.us/eSambaProj
    7) What is the best fuse wire? I only use 1/8w resistor legs http://j35.us/ResistorLegs
    8) Why not use Supercapacitors? A. Batteries work better at this time, caps are rare and expensive devices that are very good at doing things not needed for storage systems typically.

    Holy shit.... someone on YouTube doing a DIY that actually researched and knows what he is taking about. That's refreshing!! I'm an industrial electrician and constantly work with 480 and 208 three phase power. This guy is spot on with voltages and Watt hours etc. Good job!!

    +Platypus Paws there is work in rural areas. Either servicing the local area or in mines or plants. You can always apply to Energex. There are a number of fields once you are a sparky: hazardous areas, instrumentation, solar, High Voltage, security, data. There are university pathways from electrician to engineer. There is government funding to help you out and you, education and training can become a tax deduction too.Contact your local Tafe to sus it out would be your best bet, even have a look a...

    No he doesn't, he said "kilowatt of energy" wtf does that even mean? Kilowatt is the unit for power *NOT* energy.

    You might consider a fireproof enclosure for that contraption... you know, instead of wood.

  • RK Aitch (Jan 30, 2019)

    How about backer board? Used for tile install

  • wrybread (Jan 4, 2019)

    Hardy board for the backing at least perhaps?

  • Michael Bedford (May 31, 2016)

    Cool project, I always love DIY and people who share the knowledge. To everybody else on here, right or wrong, we should be thankful for people who take the time to do a good video and share their knowledge, even if it is wrong or we don't agree with it fully. You can either learn good things, bad things and takeway (if you choose) something from things like this.Having said that, I do disagree with a few things. First the price, you only mention the batteries, wood and glass as cost on your BOM. How...

    Michael Bedford can a Tesla powerwall be juiced with wind turbines?

  • runt0r (Jul 21, 2016)

    what about some easy electrosmog shielding? Or i have to keeep my tin foil hat on?

  • Cekpi7 (Dec 29, 2015)

    100$ for glass...you could buy more cells

  • AndTheBeat GoesOn (Sep 26, 2018)

    Cekpi7 it was $100.00 spent on theater. Notice he covered the Tesla with his sticker after? What a statement!! Great way the end the video.

    300 dollar unit, 100 of which were just for the cover! Thats ridiculous. Just leave the glass cover with no art on it. You can save at least 75 dollars.

  • c shackleford (1 day ago)

    just started watching your videos not long ago, but i love the information and content. i do have a question concerning these lithium ion batteries. have you experienced any safety issues concerning the batteries catching on fire when you charge or discharge them inside your home? the reason why i am asking is because i am considering using these batteries for projects in the near future, and i don't want to worry about and safety issues storing or charging these batteries inside. i am considering buil...

    Nice work! It's encouraging to see practical use of the POWER WALL

  • Barry Rudolph (3 days ago)

    Might want to check with your home owners insurance before installing that thing.

  • George Edwards (Sep 30, 2016)

    Dude, you have an amazing channel.

  • Roelof Kingma (Apr 27, 2017)

    Hi there,You forgot to mention the costs of a control unit and an inverter, which - of course - are included in the Tesla Unit.Regards from The Netherlands,Roelof Kingma
