Added a second version TB2 which has captive nuts and machine screws. I have increased the gaps for the lid so hopefully this one will fit together better. I'll make it bigger once the parts are proven to fit together properly.

Version 1 is a bit of a disaster. parts don't fit too well and it is a bit too complicated.

Brilliant -- we have actually been working on this as well. Are you starting from individual cells or have you found a source for laminates?

Solar has got to be the way to go. I am using individual cells sourced from China and making them into 18 volt 140 Watt panels. My first array will be 3 of panels into a couple of deep cycle batteries and directly run a 2-3kW hot water system (boiler) for normal domestic usage. I am hoping to get enough energy during the day to run the system entirely from the solar but we'll see.
