Some neat stuff on this site

Does anyone know where I could find a similar type of system pack here in Canada?

Hi NoBShere,
I usually don't get involved with solar on a consumer goods level but do have access to the PowerFilm and Kisea product line.
They have stuff like that.  Here's some links:
http://www.powerfilmsolar.com/
http://www.kisaetechnology.com/index.php
If you see anything useful there, let me know a part number and I'll get you a price.

Goal Zero products are available here in Ontario. I personally am liking the Yeti 400 for transportability...

No not yet... am weighing options. Solar up here is not really all that good in winter.

Thoughts on these to help supplement solar in the winter?
 http://www.tegmart.com/thermoelectric-generator-products/devil-watt-30w-thermoelectric-wood-stove-generator/
I believe there are different sizes but put a few of these on the woodstove and can probably help keep the batteries charged...

The theory is sound but you need a very hot stove otherwise you will only be producing 4 watts according to the data sheet. I would like to know how they are calculating their 30W, I am somewhat sceptical as I have experimented with this type of device. For the price you could get a decent solar panel, battery and inverter.
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

Agreed it isn't much. Looking to have the battery system anyways just different ways to charge it. Not sure how effective the solar would be when you can go several weeks without seeing the sun. Also looking at mini wind turbine solutions that might be winter safe. Heck I'm even looking at pedal power  http://www.econvergence.net/product-p/pawa-1.htm  possible way to stay active buried in 6' of snow as well as keeping the battery system charged.

Ok the spammers seem to be getting smarter. I could be wrong but this smells like spam to me. A reply to this post by JulianPark could clarify this, lets see if we get one.

Try this site, the system does work I just got too carried away with it. PM me if you got questions on it. Spamming?

And try this one for wind turbines, PM Geenguy about solar stuff, that's his area of expertise.

NoBS,

I am now solar powered......well a little bit. Have the Guide 10+ kit from Goal Zero. Just built a gear taco to protect it when backpacking. I will post a short blog on the taco later.

Now I need to go try it out.....
