Great link!

I thought he developed infrared solar panels for aerospace, likely for the space shuttle. They could use GaSb panels. So could the space station, for that matter.

Did you see the soda can size for 20 Watts?

I think this belongs in Favorite Links part of the forum.

Maybe you should move this to Favorite Links?

My Midnight Sun is propane. It is ideal for my remote rural property.

I planned on it for central heating and for ample power (in amps) for my amateur radio hobby.

For a central heating, the price I paid to get a prototype from the swindler was a reasonable price.

I have four solar panels that run the 1.3 amps Norcold refrigerator, designed for a sail-only yacht, that and all my 12 volts DC and 110 VAC lighting requirements.

I planned this. It was no accident.

I understand the owner of jxcrystals is the inventor of the GaSb solar panels.

I see the liscensed model is propane or natural gas, but licensed to be sold only to a limited market in North America.

Railroad properties only?

I don't use anything like a killowatt.

I suggest start with anticipated useage. I did.

I calculated lighting (12 volt DC and 110 VAC) and the Norcold "Norcolder" refrigerator (1.1 - 1.3 amps for startup each cycle) and to operate for the ambient temperature (.1 - .3 amps), like that.

I figure I need heat anyway. I purchased a propane "blanket" wall mounted heater for efficiency and a propane "Everest" furnace for Montana winter, plus a small "ice house" wood stove for my structure (estimated heating requirements), like that.

For amateur radio QRP (under 10 watts voice, under 5 watts Morse Code or PSK31, etc.) I have ample power with four Kyocera solar panels. The amplifier, however, needs more amps.

I am considering electronics for backpacking.

For example, camera with GPS for mapping my trip and sharing photos with geolocation online.

Bicyclists do this.

That is why I mentioned the soda-can size one (see earlier posting).

Now-a-days, backpackers carry iPods with GPS or SPOT GPS with text messaging.

Why not carry a camera with GPS and upload photos with GPS data with coffeeshop WiFi or an amplified WiFi antenna.

What fuels the soda can one? Propane/Butane canisters?

I'm thinking LED lighting is the way to go for all our needs. After Christmas super sales can get ya some nice strings of clear lights ;)


Found it....

Butane Cartridge 3.5" diameter x 8"

I think this will be my stove for the Shangri La 3.

Gee I like the simplicity of the design. So easy to assemble. Big enough to take the chill out a tent and keep it warm. Nice video, thank you! :D

Always have time to watch wood stoves burning inside a tent.

Hiking in Finland has a review of the Khufu tipi.

http://hikinginfinland.com/2013/02/locu ... eview.html

Here is their website: http://locusgear.com/?lang=en

If you convert the currency and if you get free shipping, you do well.

I like the Khufu in cuben.

This is interesting from hiking finland:

The top has a mesh air vent, and while it works good I think it would benefit from being bigger. In conditions where there is a lot of condensation you will get condensation either way, but if there would be only a bigger air vent that might make the different between a wet inner or a dry inner (provided there’s a good breeze). The air vent has a wire in it so that it stays open, and while it can not be closed you can pull it close to the door with a guyline & line-lock to hinder spindrift snow come inside. You can circumvent the condensation by pitching one or two sides a bit higher to get more airflow, this would help in situations where this only little condensation, though.
