Solar-electric kayak


Since 2012, we’ve built several solar electric boats But those were not easy to transport assembly required a bit of time Been working on a light weight easily transportable electric boat
ever since Finally, this is it Presenting you, Jolpori
(named after Fairy spirit living in water) Made a real electric outboard motor for the first time the motor is 12v brushed dc takes 5 amps of current clearly not very powerful but only runs with two 20watt panels,
dawn to dusk for this test, didn’t include solar panels A 20ah battery was used,
which powered the boat all day long If I use the panels, no battery is required the motor runs straight from the panels driving the boat is so easy that my 4 yo nephew could do it in the first attempt planning for a looooooong trip wanna go?
