Hey I'm new to most forums in general and electronics forums in particular. I hope to learn alot about electronics in general... parts, what they do, how they do it, etc. First question... I have an electric scooter... custom-made, twin-engine, massively powerful. It's being worked on and improved at the moment, and at some point soon i'll probably exchange the old lead-acid batteries for lithium-ion to save weight. I normally charge it via a DC converter that plugs into the wall. Do you think I could get a big enough solar panel area to charge this thing on a fairly regular basis... would I have to buy or build it.. building is cheaper and more fun but less reliable in my case. I can't remember the amps or volts it uses...I'll ask my dad who's having a guy work on it, but for batteries with that much power... could I make a solar converter to at least trickle charge it on sunny days? Thanks! Oh and anyone who wants to PM me and teach me about any specific electronic device, or get my email to do the same is welcome... i'm here to learn!
