    This is WAY over my head…

      Yeah I looked at it, and while I might.. might be able to use his parts and code to build one. It would be really pushing my limits. But, it’s awesome to see more open-source hardware out there.

      It is a bit over my head as well…. That said, I am happy that his guy has shared his design, it is limited in what it can do, but being open sourced other brainy people out there can build on this and make the design even better with more options.

      Myself I don’t have the tools to build this and this would be a stretch for me to attempt this, but if it is under $50.00 for this to get all the parts I might consider it.

      I do like that it can function as other devices, and it is 100% open for changes in software, that appeals to me. On the other hand the $300.00 charge controllers I only have to hook them up set them then walk away….

      I am thinking that when we go to war with China which I think is likely that having the parts to build this would be very very handy…

    Also pro tip:

    Google / YouTube started adding tracking numbers to their YouTube links, giving a unique identification code for every viewer. When you share the link without altering it, you let Google find out what IP addresses / devices / general locations are communicating and sharing with what other IP addresses / devices / location.

    Luckily the solution is quite easy. First of all, use a VPN like cyberghost or NordVPN, or even something free like AdBlocker to block some tracing via cookies and other IP reading mechanisms.

    But you can also prevent tracking from sharing YouTube videos be simply altering the link like so.

    The new YouTube link structure goes as follows, using the link you shared as an example (don’t click this one):

    Everything after “?si=“ is the tracking code. “SI” stands for “sharing ID”.

    So you just alter it like so, deleting everything after “?si=“ (this one is safer to click):

    For web articles and webpages, you can also use AmputatorBot to get rid of Google Amp tracking in articles and links you want to share.
