PLANS FOR v2.0

A project log for Solar Display Case

Three portable low-power 17 inch monitors stored in a rolling briefcase with five 20 watt solar panels for power anywhere

I have the base schematics for the second version completed, upon testing the prototype I found that the single solar panel is not sufficient for keeping the monitors charged. v2.0 Strives for 100 watts of solar energy output by affixing solar panels to the backs of all of the monitors (including an additional third monitor that will be in the second version) and to both sides of the briefcase itself. This should be more than enough power to keep the case operational much longer, and maybe even enough power to provide a charge to a small laptop as well. Enough talk! It's time to get to work.
