    Well I added my 45 Watt Solar Panels today! The battery was at 10.3 Volts and as soon as I hoked it up it went to 11.32 V in Cloudy Skies!!!!

    Here's the Pics I now have one of the most High Tech Deer Blinds but I still need NEW BLADES on my Wind Genny!!!!!

    The Wind Gen Coleman went from 10.3 to 11.32 Volts...

    Cool. Are you finding that the combination of the solar panels and the wind turbine are providing enough power?

    Your house is 500 yards away from your deer blind! How big is your property :)?

    6 Acres...

    The Solar seems to be doing the Job by Itself...My Wind Genny only gets 12 Volts in High Winds...I need to get new Blades...Fixitguy was gonna send me some but I haven't heard from him in awhile...

    After a Full day of Partly Cloudy and the Wireless IP Running the Soalr Charger read 13.1 Volts and the Coleman read 12.81 :cool:

    I think I meant 500 feet...;)

    Don, from upgrading over the years I have accumulated hubs and blades. Right now I have been selling large WN 3 blade hubs and sets of 24 inch WN blades on EBay . If those two items could help you out let me know and I will send you a gift to help you out ( free). You pay for the shipping. If you want them I have 5/8 or 17 mm.
    Sorry Josh if I took your sale, just think of it as advertisement ! lol

    Its staying at like 12.6 Volts and the IP Wireless Cam has been running almost 7 days now...I think I have achieved my goal! Now when I get my new Genny Blades that will just help even more!!!!
