Portable solar panels and charger

Hi all,

I'm not sure this is the best group for this post, but here goes. I am wondering if anyone has found a suitable combination of portable solar panels and charger for charging RCR123 batteries.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Geoff Lawton's 2015 Online Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) Course

I am currently in my second week of taking Geoff Lawton's online PDC, and it is literally blowing my mind so far.  This is not my first exposure to a PDC -- I took an on-site one locally in 2012, and it was definitely a valuable experience.  But Geoff's PDC is a whole other order of magnitude -- the depth of understanding of natural patterns he brings is unique, and he has the talent of taking a complex and complicated subject and distilling it down to its simplest elements, so it is easily understood.  It is informative AND inspiring, and I highly recommend to anyone

Expats and the Uprooted

This group is for the uprooted, the expatriots, the unemployed, single or homeless and for those who would help us in our efforts to become resilient.

All of us will have to face the realities of failing markets at the same time, but we are not all on an equal footing to weather the storm. The prolonged economic recession has left many without the resources we need to prepare and without the ability to act upon much of the information available on Prosperity.

Hi Kathy! Michigan is quiet! It's you and me!

Any specific discussions you'd like to see open up for Michiganders? Excited to see who will find/join us! What are your preparedness priorities? Our family has focused on the basics -- alternate location with shelter, food, sustainable future food, off-grid living and protection. It's always a pull as to where available resources should go next, right? I'm interested in hearing if anyone has dealt with their retirement savings yet -- as in self-directed precious metals so you can actually get them if the SHTF, etc.

Solar Power Cooperatives

As I wrote in a post in the Michael Shuman interview thread, I have joined a solar power cooperative here in my area of Switzerland and I would like to share what I know so far about how this cooperative works, and also some of the technical aspects of the solar centers that it maintains, in the hope that others with experience with either individual solar systems or members of other solar cooper
