With the arrival of the minilBT H-Bridge, I finally have everything I need in house to start the build. I've tested the solar controller and panel and everything works as expected. Now to wire everything up in the workshop to verify that the components function as intended.
At this point I'm not worried about being a little greedy on power usage as I should have power to spare at this point. That will change as I'm considering putting some video cameras on the coop and will want to tie them into the power system.
