Green RC

green rcIt’s really not hard to go green with your rc cars and trucks and it’s not much more of an expense. Plus you know you can charge wherever you are at. Chances are that you have a 12 volt charger, rather than pouring $60 on a 12 volt power supply, think about buying a 12 volt battery. You’ll want to get a deep cycle battery as they are designed to be charged and discharged frequently.

To keep your batteries charged with green power and become a green rc guy, you’ll need a solar panel. Depending on how much sun you get around your workshop and how often you use your truck you’ll probably just need a panel between 15 & 50 watts.

That panel will cost you between 60 & $200, but it’s convenient to have the portability and it will pay itself off within a decade.
