Camping here freely out in the forest for four days over the Christmas holidays, at the back of a small forest road. Nice weather with a temperature of -5 - -7°C during the day and down to -9°C at night. Two of the days were nice sunny with a beautiful weather!

On the road again...
Out on a short camping trip in my nice Swedish rural winding hilly backroads in mountainous forested countryside again.
Here a little pause beside a small lake, half way to the final destination.

Feels like the development of Thermoelectric Power Generator (TEG) is close to a use in a caravan for fricamping the cold dark season, complementing solar panels. That they only have an efficiency of 6-7% does not matter, then you just borrow heat from the gas boiler as yet only to warm the caravan, which the losses from the TEG unit also does.
  They show a 20W 14V TEG module there, which of course would have been perfect for my free-camping.

I have been out on a four day road trip on winter free camping in the Swedish rural backroads, 22-25 january 2014. It was 10-15cm of snow depth and around -4°C to -9°C, wich made up for a perfect winter camping.

New battery technology that could solve some part of the energy storage of solar electricity! (Article in Swedish.)

New Years camping at the end of a small forest road in Sweden, 2014-01-01. Joined three cozy days here in the Östgötska lonely forest.

A truly magical full moon autumn evening when I last Friday 18 October 2013 drove out with my little caravan for a nice camping trip over the weekend, out in the rural countryside setting for a free camping.

Stays for a resupply of some groceries in a country store (www.sjobergalanthandel.se/) in the middle of the rural areas during my free-camping trip in Östergötland, Sweden.

My little caravan has its roof now almost entirely full of solar panels with a total installed capacity of 250W. It is 4x50W monocrystalline silicon solar panels permanently built together (glued together) to one large unit on the gently sloping front roof and a 1x50W CIS thin-film solar panel on the horizontal roof, which gives a little better with power in lower light for early morning and late evening. The six year old CIS thin-film solar panel is a bit outdated now with a bit of poor performance, but works well for me anyway.

With this, I am totally independent self-sufficient in electricity, even when the weather is not completely sunny.

In light cloudy weather, I get up to 5 amps, and in more typically cloudy weather around 2 -3 amps, and in sunny weather up to 15 amps, all at 12 volts DC system voltage.
